Silent Boat Rally - Aug 3, 2019, 9am-1pm

The Silent Boat Rally is for kayaks, canoes and paddle boards.  Join us for a chance to paddle a beautiful winding river, and explore small bays and meanders along the way. We will launch our crafts below Marsh's Falls and paddle down the Lower Oxtongue River to Lake of Bays and then return to the Falls. Participants will learn about the plants and animals that can be seen on the river.  This 8km of easy paddling in protected waters is followed by a light lunch. The Lake of Bays Association (LOBA) and The Lake of Bays Heritage Foundation (LBHF) support this program.

Cost $20 per person. 9am - 1pm.  For more information, or to register, please contact us at registration@lakeofbaysheritage.ca
