If you are looking for an entry-level experience, paddling in the great Canadian Wilderness then you have found it. With a launch point of only 2.5 hours from Toronto and our certified guides providing all of the necessary equipment and meals, all you have to do is pack some clothes and show up. Come and explore the World’s largest freshwater archipelago with the people who know the best places to kayak. Georgian Bay is 190 km north to south, about 80 km east to west, and is part of the Great Lake Huron. The east side of Georgian Bay is relatively shallow and is known as the 30,000 islands. It is in the heart of this chain of islands that we will be exploring.
At our launch point on Georgian Bay we will paddle into the islands and find a place to set up camp. It’s fine if you haven’t camped before, our guide will help you every step of the way. Our route will depend on the weather we experience during the trip but there are lots of options. There will be opportunities to paddle and improve your kayaking and camping skills with certified Paddle Canada instructors, swim in crystal clear freshwater, and explore on land.
Check out our group discounts. Book 3-4 people for $900/person. Book 5+ people for $850/person.
For every dollar you spend 1% goes directly to environmental charities like the Georgian Bay Biosphere. Protecting this incredible place is very important to us.
