Kayak and Canoe through the Minesing Wetlands, including Willow Creek and Nottawasaga River
Previous kayaking/canoeing experience is a must to participate in this event, as this is not a "learn to paddle" outing. Once committed, this is a 5 hour paddle with no option to turn back. In windy conditions, this is a very long and challenging kayak paddle. Canoeing is not recommended if it's windy; you'll be advised of conditions a few days before outing.
Join your fellow TOC adventurers and our event guides Free Spirit Tours as we are guided on a spring paddle through the ecosystem that is the Minesing Wetlands - located northwest of Barrie.
