In the Heart of Temagami, Gateway to Ontario’s Wilderness Region
Looking for a way to put 2020 behind you? To see you through the eye of the next snow storm? To enjoy a beautiful sunny winter day?
Beginning this year, Docks Plus Temagami is offering snowmobile rentals with a fleet of brand new 2021 Polaris INDYs available for reservation.
“Each machine comes fully insured with OFSC trail permits ready to go,” said Dirk Van Manen, describing rental packages that run one to seven days. “Pretty simple, actually, the fuel tank is topped up and there’s unlimited kilometre use.”
“We even have the gear available, including snowmobile suites and helmets for purchase or rent,” he said, noting they are following COVID safety protocols while adding there is a ‘BYOB’ requirement, “bring your own boots.”
OFSC’s Trans-Ontario Provincial Trail runs directly by Docks Plus, located in the centre of Temagami. Customers can enjoy a short daytrip to Timiskaming Shores and back or follow the vast OFSC trail system ‘til their heart is content.
Van Manen happens to be one of the trail groomers for the Tri-Town Sno Travelers Club and can offer all the trail guidance you need. A click away, you can always find updates about the trail status by visiting OFSC’s interactive trail map.
For day-trippers, there’s plenty of room to park right there at Docks Plus. Dirk also recommends Temagami Shores Inn and Resort for great accommodations and the meals to warm you up before or after your ride.
Dirk and Joanne Van Manen took over the Docks Plus Temagami operation four years ago. They sell custom docks and water toys during the summer. This is their first year in the snowmobile rental business and Dirk said he did a lot of research before settling on a mix of two-up 550 INDY LXTs and liquid-cooled 600 INDYs.
The daily Monday to Friday rental rate, depending on your machine of choice, is $290 and $350; discounted multi day rates – two days $550 and $670, respectively; three days $780 and $960, etc. One-day Saturday rates are $325 and $390 and full weekend rates are $650 and $780.
