What You'll Get
Numerous ecological regulations impact our fish, yet few volunteers are interested in doing the hard work of registering them to vote. Canvass your local waterways with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a introduction to kayaking and canoeing, and a two-hour fall-foliage-themed adventure on the Humber River from Toronto Kayak and Canoe Adventures (a $50 value). Today's Groupon expires on October 31 and is valid on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday, so make sure to book your trip before the leaves turn from friendly fall hues to resentful chunks of hoarfrost.
Toronto Kayak and Canoe Adventures offers urban adventurers a convenient chance to explore their native waterways. The fun and educational floats launch from right below the Old Mill TTC subway station. The watertop exploits begin with a Fall Colours introduction to kayaking and canoeing, during which experienced professors of the paddle will review the basics of the vessel and how to navigate it around menacing goslings. From there, clients will take to their watercrafts for a tranquil two-hour trek down the Humber River, one of Toronto's major waterways. As guests glide across the waters, they can absorb the sights and sounds of a natural world not seen in big-city life—the sweet coo of the muskrat, the massive wingspan of the carp, or the gambling addiction of the blue heron, all among the drifting orange, red, and yellow leaves of the changing fall foliage. Each of the beginner-friendly tours is led by a friendly and experienced navigator of nature, ensuring maximum safety and scenery-seeing for each kayaker.
This deal is valid exclusively for weekend adventures, which launch five times a day, starting at 9 a.m. and ending at 5 p.m. Both kayaks and three-person canoes are available for your aqueous conquering. Reserve your spot online with Toronto Kayak and Canoe Adventures and propel yourself across the Humber River's oft-changing face.

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.
