Message Board

Social Paddles are held weekly with a relaxed & intermediate paddle. Intermediate paddles held Thursdays are more consistent paddling travelling much further than the relaxed groups. Relaxed groups on Thurs and Fri nights do require kayaking experience if paddling solo, but we take our time and take breaks along the way. Simply reserve a kayak for 6pm and paddle with others followed by a BBQ outside the office.

Check back here often for updates and be sure to like us on Facebook  re Toronto paddling / some photos from the past on "Throw-back-Thursdays".

NIGHT PADDLING: 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 bright headlamp to face forward.  Also it is advised to cross the harbour alongside the buoys at the end of the airport runway.

CELEBRATE PADDLING VISUALLY!  Check out some 1985 location photos in our photo gallery , and the 30 min. film THE CANOE by Film-maker and Harbourfront Alumni, Goh Iromoto. You'll be sure to see see some familiar footage, and check out other Toronto waterfront footage there too.
