Choose from Three Options

Located on a scenic waterfront south of the CN Tower and Rogers Centre and accessible via the TTC, Harbourfront Canoe and Kayak Centre offers three options with this deal. Three-hour guided tandem kayak tours float among the flora and fauna of a 13-island archipelago. During canoe trips, duos paddle with up to 18 others within a historic Voyageur canoe replica, travelling at a leisurely pace across the inner harbour towards bird sanctuaries and lagoons. Orientation sessions, safety talks, and a chance to pet each boat and feed it a snack precede both tours. For stand up paddleboarders, certified instructors lead a 90-minute introductory lesson, which includes transportation for an additional 15-minute pontoon boat ride to and from the lesson amongst the Toronto Island archipelago.<p>

Harbourfront Canoe and 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, canoe 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.
