Join our group to enjoy outdoors and recreation without leaving downtown. Paddle from our location at Harbourfront to the picturesque Toronto Islands and discover its numerous lagoons and wild life. Make new friends in a perfect social atmosphere - being in the same boat. It is another reason to spend time outdoors.
The tours we offer are to Toronto islands and its ideal for large parties, everybody gets a life jacket and a paddle and there is always a guide that would sit at the very back of the canoe and his job is to steer and make sure everyone has a safe and enjoyable time, they are also first aid certified.
We have many different sized canoes, we have 3 that can fit 8 people in each so that`s ideal for groups that like to compete among each other,and for a more relax time and photo opportunities we have larger canoes that we can fit 18 people in. Again the most common question we get is how much of a workout is it, and the truth is its really not, we have taken out all kinds of groups with various ages and everyone has had a great time and enjoyed the experience, and the guide is always the to help out with the paddling.
Its great for beginners also as a paddling lesson will be given before every trip,all we recommend is that you bring cameras the photo opportunities are amazing also they are perfectly safe as we have many years of experience and NO canoe has EVER turned, the only time water gets in the canoe is just friends splashing each other.
