Due to COVID restrictions, we decided to start the 2021 paddling season not before Saturday, June 19th, Father’s Day weekend!

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

EDMONTON CANOE offers days of fun on the water from end of May to end of September in and around Edmonton.

Covid-19 regulations:

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.

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.

Edmonton Canoe is recommended by

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.
