Description & Services
The Milo Aquatic Club is home to a variety of seasonal activities.
In the warm months, a supervised waterfront (Nova Scotia Lifeguard Service), a sailing program, and a canoe/kayak program make the Aquatic Club a hot spot for area children and youth.
Boathouse hours are from 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week in the summer months. Canoe and kayak rentals are available to the public starting at 10 am at a rate of $6/hr or $15/ 3 hours. Rentals are based on boat availability. Summer memberships are also available to individuals and families.
The Club also has a recently renovated reception hall and kitchen facilities on the second floor, suitable year round for banquets, clinics, and meetings, or leisure activities that require minimal space, such as martial arts, yoga, or an art program.
The Aquatic Club is also pleased to offer a public boat launch and floating docks which are used by the local bass club, and others, throughout the year.
Opens for the Season July 3, 2017.
