We regularly create custom Paddle Canada courses for outdoor clubs, colleges, private schools, Scouts, Army Cadets, outdoor stores, and groups of friends. We offer training for paddlers of every skill level. It could be a certification course or a skills clinic. Our private group kayaking courses and tours are ideal for families, groups of friends, organizations, and clubs.
With the new normal that we are all trying to get used to, we are getting more requests for training and guided trips for small groups or social bubbles. We have the guides, instructors, and equipment to create a program for you.
You can choose to meet your instructor wherever you like, at a local waterfront park or at your cottage waterfront. We can also run it at our waterfront at Harmony Outdoor Inn. We have instructors based all over Ontario that are willing to travel to share their love of kayaking.

Really loved the level 1 course. Your personalities and the way you work together made for a fun weekend. We learned a lot and both feel better prepared to perform either an assisted or solo rescue.
