Paddle the Big Voy
Voyageur Canoe Trips
Stay tuned for more information on festival events and programs for summer 2023.
Come join us for the amazing experience to experience paddling in a traditional 34ft Montreal Voyager Canoe! A great way to get out on the big lake and enjoy a part of our heritage. We welcome people from all walks of life from couples, children, work buddies, seniors and families we will all be moving cohesively using human power and its just awesome!
We will travel the waterways of Silver Islet in our 34ft Montreal Canoe. We will travel at a relaxed pace and according to the lake conditions. We will explore the nearby islands and if conditions allow we will paddle over the mine shaft or to the sea lion arch formation. You will get a taste of the life of the voyageurs as they traversed our water ways in these amazing boats.
Paddlers require the ability to sit for 1.5 hours without moving around. A moderate level of fitness is required for this excursion. Depending on numbers we could have 2-4 non paddlers join each excursion and sit in the middle seats.
The canoe will be at the Silver Islet dock ready to go on 1.5hrs tours $40/person+HST minimum 8 people to run. Max 14 people per trip with two experienced canoe guides.
We will provide PFD/Lifejackets, paddles and safety equipment. Dress appropriately with layers and a rain jacket. We will have some extra dry bags if you need for your camera/phone etc.
