Kayak and Canoe through the Minesing Wetlands, including Willow Creek and the 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 paddle. So join your fellow TOC adventurers and our event guides Free Spirit Tours as we're guided on a spring paddle through the ecosystem that is the Minesing Wetlands - located northwest of Barrie.
