Tune into CBC’s Dragons’ Den Wednesday, Jan. 29, and you’ll see some familiar faces from Seaward Kayaks in Chemainus.

The episode featuring Seaward’s trip to the Den will air Jan. 29 at 8 p.m. (8:30 p.m. in Newfoundland) on CBC.

“At this time, we cannot reveal any details about the show itself, but it was a fantastic experience for the owners of Seaward Kayaks,” Seaward states in a press release.

A family-owned business and local employer, Seaward Kayaks is one of the original North American kayak manufacturers, with a 25-year history of excellence.

The company has built up a reputation for building the finest quality sea kayaks in the world and is the manufacturer of choice for industry-leading outfitters and training programs, according to a press release.

Seaward general manager Doug Godkin visited CBC’s Toronto studio April 6 with Seaward Kayaks owners Steven and Jacquie Ree to tape an appearance for the show’s eighth season.
