Thank you all for a great season and we look forward to helping you enjoy Toronto's Waterfront beginning May 16, 2020.

  ...As a paddler, it may have occurred to you that all of your years paddling and enjoying your favorite hobby were simultaneously preparing yourself for social distancing. (read the article)

CELEBRATE PADDLING VISUALLY!  Check out some 1985 location photos in our photo gallery , most recent photos on Facebook, 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.


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.
