Meet your host at the Centre Island ferry dock on the Island side. After a short welcome introduction we will walk to our canoes. At the canoes, we will be signing waivers, putting on life-jackets and getting paddles. Once everyone gets in the canoe, there will be a short paddling instruction by Paddle Canada guide. Our tour will start with a visit to the Bird Sanctuary and will proceed to the Hanlan's Point and many more places on the Toronto Islands. After 1.5 hour tour and visiting most places in the Archipelago, we will come back to our starting point on the Centre Island.
I live on the Toronto Islands and like sharing my knowledge about this unique and beautiful place with others. As a Paddle Canada Canoe and SUP instructor with 20 years of experience of guiding tours and teaching courses, I offer a safe and quality activity at the Islands' lagoons. As a traveler myself, with 30 countries under my belt, I like meeting people from other places and can understand traveler needs. I believe, my passion for outdoors and traveling makes me a good Experience host and I will try my best to make you feel welcomed and comfortable and help you to enjoy my tours.
