Leisure & Intermediate Social Paddles/BBQs

Our Leisure Social Paddles are all about getting paddlers out with our guides on Wed, Thurs, and Fri nights to help build your skills and most importantly have fun. Our Intermediate Paddles run either Thurs or Fri nights weekly (they alternate) and go further and faster than the Leisure Paddles. Both are followed up by a BBQ where all proceeds from donations go to the Daily Food Bank and the sponsoring of a World Vision child. We update our homepage as to the weather/cancellations by 4pm in the afternoon and if you are renting a boat then pre-registration is encouraged. We depart by 6:00pm in Sept so please come down early to sign in, get your equipment, and allow time to get onto the water. It's a joy for us to show you some of our favourite areas around the islands and we encourage you to stay and socialize afterwards.

Traffic & Getting to our Lakeside Office: Rees St. NOW OPENAt present Queens Quay West is under construction and is a one-way westerly direction road. Rees Street is now open for through traffic to Queens Quay West. You can access our closest parking lot on the NW corner of Rees St and Queens Quay W from Queens Quay. For more information and maps of our location and TTC options Click here. The TTC 509 bus presently picks up on the west side of Bay St just north of Front St, and drops you off at Queens Quay and Rees St. Returning to Union Station you take the 509 Bus again from Lakeshore Blvd and Lower Simcoe. Please note that on Blue Jay home game nights, our closest parking lot across the road fills up. We find the best option is TTC of course, but there is underground parking on the south side of Queens Quay between Spadina & Bathurst at Marina Quay West. It is a 15 minute walk from there to our office so give yourself plenty of extra time if coming for a program. For the Blue Jay schedule: Blue Jays
