Experience an evening paddle at Fort Whyte Alive! (RSVP to one date per month)

  • Jun 24, 2014 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Make the most of our gorgeous summer evenings and join us paddling in a canoe or kayak on the open water at Fort Whyte Alive - our local nature reserve.

Fort Whyte Alive, in partnership with Mountain Equipment Co-op and The Wilderness Supply Company, will be offering Winnipeg’s best selection of kayaks for us to enjoy. These evenings are supervised by the paddling pros, and offer the perfect chance to sample kayaking or canoeing in a safe environment.

*Please note, this is a public event, so we need to be patient when waiting for kayaks and canoes to come in (last year we waited 15 minutes or so).  It will give us a chance to exchange paddling stories or tales of the open water!

The Plan:

5:30pm - meet at Tim's, do introductions, and give out lanyards

6:00pm - carpool to FWA Adventure Site

6:20pm -  arrive at FWA, take group photo, and prepare for our evening of paddling!

6:30-8:30pm -  Canoe/kayak (2-person kayak/2 or 3 person canoe)

8:30pm (approx.) - carpool back to Tim's

9:00pm (approx.) - arrive back at Tim's

Please Bring:

• Clothes suitable to paddle in - swimsuit/old tee shirt and shorts

• Water shoes

• Your Experience Manitoba lanyard (if you don't have yours you will get it at this meetup)

• Snacks and water bottle (optional)

• Camera (optional)

Held at the FortWhyte Adventure Site at 2505 McGillivray Blvd. (not the main FortWhyte Alive entrance on McCreary Rd.)

*Weather permitting.  If we are cancelling due to weather or high winds we will post the notice on the home page of our website and members will get a refund.
