Looking for a gentle, short river to paddle a few hours (no more) with SO.
Must have
no rapids,
easy access/egress,
canoe rental at start (won't have a rack on the car) and
place to leave the canoe at the end.

Does the Margaree, any reach of it, qualify?

You might want to consider Kejimkujik National Park. Canoe rentals can be had from an outfitter in the park, and the lake systems offer a variety of options. Here are a couple of links to get you started:

Thanks for the tip.
I decided to paddle Bras d'Or Lake since it is on the way from PEI to North Sydney and the ferry to Port aux Basques.
Yours in paddling, Allan

Excellent choice! We used this outfitter http://www.kayakcapebreton.com/ a few years ago, and had a good experience.
