Happy Spring Everyone!  We will be opening back up May 19.  If you are planning on doing some cold-water spring 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.     

Celebrate Paddling!  Check out 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.

With thanks,
Dave & Crew
