We're Sorry But No Canoes are Available This Season
We have a variety of canoes to suit the needs of everyone. Made of aluminum or fibreglass, our canoes track through the water gracefully and are easy to maneuver. If you want a 3rd adult or two small children, please add canoe to your cart and click yes to upgrading to a large canoe.
There's nothing like getting out on Lake Ontario and watching the sun come up over Toronto's majestic skyline, a time when the winds and power of Lake Ontario are still as sleepy as the birds. An experience you definitely won't forget. DATES: Aug 12, 19, 26 Sept 2, 9. If you have a group of 4 or more that would like another date, please contact me directly
Located in Port Credit.
“I HAVE NEVER PULLED A BODY FROM THE BOTTOM OF A RIVER OR LAKE WITH A LIFEJACKET ON” – QUOTED FROM A MEMBER OF THE CANADIAN COAST GUARD
DROWNING IS THE 3RD LEADING CAUSE OF UNINTENTIONAL DEATH FOR CANADIANS UNDER 60. APPROXIMATELY 25% OF THEM ARE PADDLING INCIDENTS AND MANY OF THESE HAPPEN AS YOU’RE GETTING IN AND OUT OF YOUR BOAT(SLIPPING AND FALLING) PLEASE WEAR YOUR LIFE JACKET AT ALL TIMES!!!
I GET TOLD “I KNOW HOW TO SWIM,” REPEATEDLY AND I KNOW SOMETIMES IT IS HOT AND UNCOMFORTABLE. WEAR THEM ANYWAY. THERE ARE MANY WAYS YOU CAN BE KNOCKED UNCONSCIOUS, A CANOE FLIPPING ON TOP OF YOU, A JETSKI OR BOAT ACCIDENT OR WHAT IF YOU HAD A STROKE OR SEIZURE. YOU SIMPLY NEVER KNOW AND THE WATER IN THE GTA IS MURKY, ONCE YOU GO UNDER, YOU’RE SIMPLY NOT COMING UP.
WE HAVE A VARIETY OF SELF-INFLATING LIFEJACKETS YOU CAN UPGRADE TO WHICH ARE MORE COMFORTABLE AND BREATHABLE.
ESSENTIAL TIPS TO STAY SAFE:
1). ALWAYS WEAR A TRANSPORT CANADA, CANADIAN COAST GUARD OR FISHERIES AND OCEANS CANADA APPROVED LIFE JACKET – There is no rational argument for kayaking, canoeing, or SUPing on the open water without wearing a lifejacket or Personal Floatation Device (PFD). Don’t run the risk of drowning. Put one on before you enter your craft and keep it on until you’re back onshore.
2). BEWARE OF COLD WATER SHOCK – A sudden and unexpected immersion into water that’s 15 degrees celsius or less can result in cold-water shock in about one minute. Cold-water shock is often cited as the most common cause of death from immersion in cold water.
3). KNOW YOUR PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS – Regardless of your level of canoeing/kayaking experience, be mindful of the state of your physical fitness. Paddling, whether on a calm lake and fast-moving water is strenuous. Don’t put yourself in a difficult situation overestimating your skills, experience and strength.
4). WATCH THE WEATHER – No matter what time of year it is or where you are, the weather can change quickly with little warning. Check the forecast not only in the morning but moments before you are heading out and if you’re out for a day or tripping, keep an eye out and have a feel for what may be coming to adapt.
5). BE PREPARED FOR EMERGENCIES – Have a first aid kit with you. Even better would be to get First Aid and CPR certified training. You’ll learn how to help others in distress, whether it’s due to drowning, hypothermia, a wound, a heart attack or a stroke. You just never know when you’ll use it.
