The Shuswap River runs through Enderby and the surrounding rural area. It offers great recreational opportunities for novice and experienced canoeists and kayakers.
The Shuswap River, like any other body of moving water should be treated with respect. There are many hidden hazards for which canoeists and kayakers need to be prepared. The hazards change almost on a daily basis and vary in difficulty depending on the level of the water and location in the river. The greatest hazard are sweepers (trees fallen from the river banks into the water) and log jams. The river can be divided into four sections. Each section may easily be completed within one day.

* Every person on the river, regardless of age or strength, must carry and/or wear a Personal Flotation Device and whistle. It is the law!
