Owner. Don has owned Comox Valley Kayaks & Canoes since 1991. He is a kayaker and paddleboarder - and an instructor for both. He is also an expert in boat transport, and can stack 6 kayaks on a Mini (don't try that at home!). He & Nigel can be found stand-up paddle boarding together in the Courtenay River Estuary.
You best know Sue from all the email interactions that transpire while you are planning your summer kayaking adventures. She is a staple at CVKC and knows basically all the customers by name. She is part of the admin staff that pays all the bills and keeps product on the shelves. If you want something you gotta ask her for it!
