Memories await for paddling enthusiasts
Eastern Ontario is home to some of the highest grade canoe and kayak trails in Canada. Nestled along three waterways; the St. Lawrence River, Lake Ontario and the Cataraqui River / Rideau Canal, you'll experience a cornucopia of sights. From the famous 1000 Islands to passing of historic towns, villages and restored cottages.
For paddling fanatics, this summer couldn't have come fast enough. The endless waiting to feel your oar hit the glistening water, sun on your face, leaving stress on land and taking to the open water.

One of the major perks of living here, is the amazingly close access to the water. Many Kingstonians and visitors a like use the region's historic waterways for all sorts of recreational activities. Kayaking and canoeing are passionate lifestyles, and we are serious about them here in Kingston.
