What is our Cold Water Rental Policy?
When the water temperature drops below 13ÂșC, we require renters to know their in-water Rescues and to wear their personal wet/drysuit. The only exception is when there is a qualified staff accompanying you on your paddle. This is to ensure that a rescue can be performed in under 2 minutes in order to reduce your cold water exposure time. Programs which do not require a wetsuit include: Evening Social Paddles, Courses, Private Lessons & Guided Trips. Thank you for your understanding as we try to keep everyone safe.

If you know anyone who may need a little education on the realities of cold water hook'em up with this video:

Clean up the Bay and Save!
Come back from your favourite area with 3 bags of garbage, and you'll get your rental at half price! We'll even provide the garbage bags. It feels great, and is another way that we can work together for a cleaner environment. Interested in other environmental issues that we are concerned about?  Check out Our Planet section of our website.

The 13 Toronto Islands are on our doorstep, with secluded beaches, bird sanctuaries, washrooms, picnic areas, a cottage-country feel, with many waterways to paddle and explore. Stay healthy and experience the wilderness in the city. Click here to download a Map of the Toronto Islands and Paddling Boundaries.  

Our rental program begins Victoria Day Weekend, assuming the water temperature has reached 12C. Our rental season ends the last weekend of September.
