ECO-Logical Adventures is a small company dedicated to growing paddling sports in the Atlantic region. We operate rentals of kayaks and canoes seasonally and sales of boats and paddling accessories, year round. At peak operation we employ two full time and five part time staff. We believe that by getting people the right high quality canoe or kayak, and equipment at a reasonable price, they are more likely to enjoy the activity and continue living healthy in all aspects of their lives.
Founded in 2006 in Oromocto N.B. with only 6 kayaks and six canoes available, we have grown over the years and often have over 100 boats available for rental. Each year we provide our customers with new kayaks, canoes and related equipment. Canoe and kayak rental customers come predominately from the Oromocto and Fredericton area and various other locations including Peru, Jamaica, Saudi Arabia, Scotland, Germany, Spain, England, Japan, China, Italy, Austrailia Sweden, and the United States. Depending upon availability of specialized staff, ECO-Logical has conducted tours of the local waterways highlighting the rich history and wildlife in the area. We have organized outings for groups from 1 person to 50. Each year we organize numerous non profit kayak or canoe outings for groups like Cubs, Scouts, Guides or High Schools.
Located beside the Oromocto River near the juncture with the Saint John River, we are on the site of the historic Oromocto Village, just a stones throw away from the ruins of a shipyard of the 1800's that once fashioned small schooners and barques from the yield of local forests. Our location is as fitting a setting for kayak and canoe usage as one could find. New Brunswick is riddled with rivers, lakes and even ocean on three sides. The abundant water way systems in New Brunswick are so numerous that the Province might unofficially be termed "Canada's Water Park Province". We believe there is no better place in the world to go kayaking or canoeing. Our goal is to make Oromocto the "Paddling Capital of Canada".
In an effort to promote kayak, canoe, and paddleboard usage, ECO-Logical Adventures sponsors several events annually. The Reel paddling Film Festival usually kicks off the season with dozens of incredibly interesting kayaking and canoeing videos. We sponsor two paddling fishing derbies, in the early season in Oromocto and later season in Saint John. Each year ECO-Logical supports at least one Adventure Race requiring contestants from throughout the Atlantic region to compete for total points in paddling, biking, running and orienteering events.
The ECO-Logical philosophy is simple. Provide the means for people to experience the relaxing and invigorating elements of their natural environment in a health and safe way by canoeing, kayaking or paddle boarding along New Brunswick's many water ways. We are one more company promoting healthy life choices.
