I believe Just Gas Tanks are the US distributor for Safari tanks.
I got mine from them and had it mailed to a friend in Seattle. If you are mailing into Canada, request USPS instead of UPS as it will work out slightly cheaper; but you would end up paying the GST.
I didn't find anyone in Canada that carried them; however they could get it in on order at the CDN price of course. Worked out cheaper for me to purchase directly. You may find that it is still cheaper after paying the shipping and GST as well.
Nice tank, have no regrets with the purchase.

Dual Sport Touring, based in Tennesee, sells the Aqualine as well -- with much better customer service!
