Harbourfront Kayaking and Canoeing Centre can organize a private guided voyageur canoe tour for us, we just need enough people to fill the boat!

Voyageur canoe is an extra-large stable canoe for 10 or more people. Participants will propel the canoe forward using the regular canoe stroke, while all the steering is done by the guide on the stern. Thus, no previous paddling experience is required!

The trip to Toronto Islands will take around 3 hours .

Please sign up and when there are enough people I will send an e-mail asking you to make a payment by an eTransfer to TOC (sorry, no Paypal at this time). Making the payment by the cut-off date is necessary to maintain a spot on the list.

You agree to abide by the Canoe Centre and TOC rules, including wearing a PFD at all times while in a boat.

  • Water bottle and snacks
