  • Toronto Adventures
    The team at Toronto Adventures Inc. create winter, summer, spring, or fall fun adventures by taking urbanites out of their condos and A-frames and into the area's nearby-yet-faraway outdoor streams, trails, and forests. In winter, the guides lead groups snowshoeing in the Humber Valley and Copeland Forest, and in warmer months, they glide teams over two rivers for kayaking and canoeing adventures. Paddlers cast gentle ripples over waters that harbour salmon and turtles while admiring shores that shelter deer, foxes, and blue heron. Summer enthusiasts can also bask in the warm weather by sailing on Lake Ontario in keelboats, staring directly into the sun, or standing astride a paddleboard at Sunnyside Beach. For land lovers, guided hikes explore the Humber and Rouge valleys as well as the Bruce Trail. Toronto Adventures also offers adventure bus trips, dogsledding, stand up paddleboarding, hiking, and sailing.

  • Nomad Adventure Company
    Nomad Adventures folds fishing and paddling into one well-rounded experience. Established in 2007, the company specializes in guided fishing trips into Lake Huron, Lake Ontario, and other local waterways, including the Niagara. The main reason Nomad can cover so many different waterways: its use of kayaks, which are able to squeeze into tight places much easier than boats. In the spring, the company's guides lead anglers onto the Great Lakes aboard these kayaks to track down brown trout, salmon, steelhead, and more; starting in July, they chase after trophy smallmouth bass. But trips aren't always in pursuit of fish. Nomad Adventures also offers paddling excursions, which explore the shorelines and offer watery views of the sunset.

  • Wolf Den Expeditions
    Wolf Den Expeditions has two missions: get people on a boat, and get them into the wild. Its team leads regular expeditions around Algonquin Park and Georgian Bay, taking patrons by canoe and sea kayak to explore the local waters. These waterway tours stretch for three to six days, giving adventurers ample time to spot wildlife or learn to whittle their oar into a piccolo. Paddlers can also expect to encounter breathtaking natural landmarks, such as the 30,000 glacier-sculpted islands that dot the bay, or the rugged shorelines and hiking trails that crisscross the parks. For an adventure that involves inner and exterior exploration, try one of Wolf Den's yoga outings and retreats. These programs blend canoeing or sea kayaking activities with yoga sessions at the beginning and end of the day, building both muscles and mental clarity.

  • Harbourfront Canoe & Kayak Centre
    The setting sun paints streaks of warm colours across the sky and the CN Tower looms over the harbour as a group of kayakers paddle toward a secluded island. This juxtaposition of city and nature sets the tone for Harbourfront Canoe and Kayak Centre's expeditions into Lake Ontario. During tours, their guides transport groups from the urban jungle of Canada's largest city to the natural environs of 13 Toronto Islands. Whether by kayak or stand up paddleboard, the tour leaders blaze a watery path toward lagoons and sanctuaries teeming with wildlife, such as egrets, turtles, and turtles doing egret impressions. Tours also pass by historic man-made sights such as The Gibraltar Lighthouse built in 1808. In addition to guided excursions, Harbourfront Canoe and Kayak Centre's experts schedule both private and group lessons for each of their watercraft types. They can help students obtain certification, or learn invaluable skills such as kayak rescue. The instructors also lead sessions at a pool, which lets students hone their skills regardless of weather conditions.

  • Heritage River Canoe & Kayak Company
    With a focus on instruction and eco-friendly outdoor exploration, Heritage River Canoe & Kayak Company readies adventurers to paddle the waters of the Grand and Nith Rivers aboard their canoes, kayaks, and rafts. The company is a member of the Ontario Recreational Canoeing and Kayaking Association and guides are certified in first aid and CPR, rendering them able to diffuse even the largest of pool noodle fights. Most have worked on or around the river for most of their lives and also take their passion to the land as resource interpreters and nature teachers when not leading trips. On the water, they orchestrate guided river tours at various times of day, night, and season, allowing participants to witness rare sights such as the local fishes’ Boxing Day hauls. Throughout each trip, they further the company’s partnership with Grand River Conservation Authority to help preserve the ecosystem of the river and its watershed. The rental shop staffers, located in Brant Conservation Area, can supply solo customers with rental vessels or equip them for self-guided tours with any needed boats, paddles, and star charts. Those who prefer a hand in expeditions can experience structured paddling trips through introductory lessons and day camps or board rafts to fish for small-mouth bass and other river denizens. As they drift along the river, groups may encounter the area's many bold and beautiful residents, such as red-tailed hawks, ospreys, and bald eagles, all soaring above the rare Carolinian forests to their treetop condos.
