Happy Fall Everyone!  We are now closed for the season.  If you are planning on doing some fall/winter paddling, please be sure to follow these safety protocols:

  • Paddle with a buddy and let someone know the route you will be taking
  • Wear a drysuit, especially when the water temperature is below 13C
  • Know your rescues!
  • Be extra cautious of changing weather conditions, especially winds in the harbour from the east, north-east, or south-east.  If weather does change while in the islands, remember you can always leave your boat at one of the marinas and take the ferry back for free.
  • We don’t encourage night paddling due to the fact there are so many lights reflecting off the water that your lights will blend in and makes it difficult for motorized boats to see your lights. If you still decide to go out at night, have the brightest light you can find on the back of your boat able to be seen from all directions, as well as a headlamp to face forward. 

Voyageur Canoe Tours:  If you have purchased a Groupon Voucher this year but have been unable to attend due to weather cancellations or other reasons, we will extend your voucher into 2018. Just keep a copy of your voucher so we can book a tour for you next season.
