Enjoy a guided tour on the Toronto Harbour and Islands in a tandem (2-person) kayak!

Upon arrival, guests will be outfitted with a lifejacket, kayak skirt and paddle. They will then go through a short safety orientation to paddling a tandem kayak prior to departing from our docks.

Depending on your groups’ paddling ability and comfort on the water, your experienced guide will lead you on a tour of the Toronto Harbour, Toronto Islands and various channels and lagoons within the Islands, some of which can only be accessed by canoe or kayak.

2: Guided 2.5-3 Hour Big Voyageur Canoe Excursion 

Due to Covid-19 these will not be available in 2020

No paddling experience required, but come prepared to paddle!

Come and explore the 13 Toronto Island archipelago in historic voyageur canoe replicas. This is the easiest and most affordable way to provide your group with a unique and safe paddling experience. 

Guests are outfitted with a lifejacket and paddle before boarding one of our big voyageur canoes. We supply an experienced guide to steer the big canoe and teach some paddling techniques. 

Our guided Voyageur Canoe Excursion works very well with large groups crossing the inner Toronto harbor paddling to the Toronto Islands.  These highly stable boats were originally designed to carry people and goods across Canada. We now use them to transport guests throughout the many channels and lagoons of the Toronto Islands, visiting bird sanctuaries and enjoying the island landscape and Toronto’s skyline from the water. 

A round-trip excursion to the Islands takes approximately 1 hour, with an opportunity for a washroom break at Centre Island. 

Minimum age: 6 years-old with adult
