— We have put our boats into winter storage for hibernation. Thanks so much to all our clients for that great and somehow different summer of 2020! You paddlers made a total of 39,424 km with us on the North Saskatchewan River. We are looking forward to next season. —

Covid-19 regulations:

As of now and in compliance with the Alberta pandemic regulations, we are happy to announce that we have worked out a way to go paddling this summer as we have done so many summers before. That being said, please be aware that the participants of every individual booking will be treated as belonging to the same household or being members of the same cohort. If this isn’t the case, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can do all necessary arrangements for the shuttle ride.

Furthermore, every person boarding one of our vehicles for land transportation has to wear a face covering for the entire ride. The same applies when Edmonton Canoe staff is helping you in and out of the boats. No exceptions. You have to bring a face covering and wear it.

If you want to skip the bus ride and take care of your own transportation, no problem. Give us a call on 780-470-5352 and we book you in without transportation for a $20 discount per boat.

The seating in our canoes provides a 2.2 metre distance between persons. However, when we help you in and out of the boats, you have to wear a face covering. When you have any symptoms of Covid-19 – like coughing, sneezing, fever – you are not allowed to participate in any of our services. In that case, let us know BEFORE you show up.

All touchpoints of our equipment and boats and for sure all our Personal Floating Devices will be disinfected before use. The school bus company we work with will show up with disinfected bus interior for every ride.

So let’s flatten the curve even further, stay healthy and go paddling!

Paddle a canoe or kayak down the North Saskatchewan River in Edmonton. Above all, it’s outdoor fun for individuals, families and groups.

On summer weekdays, you can enjoy our Happy Hour on the river. In other words, you drift through the downtown river valley, take your mind off the job and watch the sunset over Edmonton.

No paddling experience is necessary. You quickly learn how to steer your canoe or single kayak and, in addition, the current takes you downstream.

Furthermore, you can bring your own private canoe or kayak and we shuttle you and your boat up the river. From there you follow the current back to your car.
