What You'll Get
Helicopter pilots are in constant danger of action stars climbing aboard their craft and throwing them out; kayakers, however, need only fear falling helicopter pilots. Steer an unstealable vessel with today's Groupon: for $28, you get an Intro to Kayaking & Canoeing lesson and a two-hour Humber River adventure tour with tax included (a $56.50 value) from Toronto Adventures, meeting and ending on the west side of the Humber River below the Old Mill TTC Station. Adventures are scheduled (weather permitting) throughout the week at 6 p.m. starting Monday, April 18.
Toronto Adventures leads jolly journeyers through the forests and marshes of the scenic Humber River for a two-hour guided kayak or canoe adventure. Prior to the tour, adventurers are trained in a simple evening kayaking or canoeing lesson to get all paddlers up to speed on the ins and outs of their aquatic arrowheads. Once strapped in, participants are led through scenic waterways and past majestic wildlife and politicians rarely observed in the wild. This introductory course is suitable for beginners of all ages as well as experienced paddlers seeking scenic jaunts, and presents an easy way to learn kayaking and canoeing basics without leaving the city. Toronto Adventures outfits all participants, be they doggy-paddle black belts or aquaphobic beavers, with the necessary excursion and safety equipment such as kayaks, canoes, life jackets, safety bags, and paddles.

About 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.
