SPECIAL: New 3 Hour Paddleboard Lesson + Tour                  

What a wonderful way to learn to paddle a stand up paddleboard and enjoy a guided tour through the Toronto Islands. Your tour begins from our docks with a pontoon boat shuttle to a Toronto Island beach where your instruction begins.  Before long, you will be paddling to different locations throughout the islands and learning along the way.  Each tour will have a maximum of 6 participants to one certified instructor.  Come out and enjoy the peaceful beauty of the Toronto Islands, bird sanctuaries and canals before most people begin their boating. Fees include all equipment.

Paddleboard Special: $95 +HST per person (Reg: $125+HST pp)  BOOK NOW!

Social Paddles/BBQs                  

Social Paddles are a great way to meet others who enjoy paddling, while offering the safety of paddling with experienced guides. Best of all, it's a lovely way to increase your paddling skills in a variety of weather conditions. Mark your calendar and plan to join us once a week for these wonderful evening social paddles and BBQ.

Our Leisure Social Paddles/BBQs run every Thursday and Friday evenings until the end of our season. The Social Paddles depart at 6:30pm followed by a hamburger BBQ.  Our Social Paddles are available to anyone who has taken an Evening Kayak Course or has equivalent experience. 

For those who enjoy a faster, further paddle, plan to join our INTERMEDIATE SOCIAL PADDLES, the next running Thursday June 25th. These Intermediate Paddles run at the same time of our Leisure Paddles, but will be posted here each week.

To avoid disappointment, be sure to reserve your boat ahead of time!  Frequent Paddler Card holders can book online. If you don't have a Frequent Paddler Card, you can purchase one on-line or contact us to make your reservation: 416 203 2277 - ask@paddletoronto.com.
