What you'll do

Spend time “on the water in Niagara” kayaking along the shoreline. We offer a unique kayaking experience along the shores of the upper Niagara River. Group bonding while watching geese, ducks, herons and sometimes swans. Enjoy time on the dock to rest and relax throughout the entire time.

Message us before you leave your location and also when you arrive. We will meet you and set you up with all the gear you need (life jacket, kayak or paddle board, paddle). We will explain all the ins and outs of this waterway and history of the surrounding area and then you will be able to continue on your way up the river.

If you would like to practice near the shore before you set off with directions from your guide you will be able to do so. Bring your cell phone in a waterproof bag. Bring drinks and a snack if you would like (take it with you on the waterway or keep your stuff on the dock.). Guests must 16 years old or older.

Enjoy an outdoor experience only 20 minutes from Niagara Falls....It’s like being in Canadian cottage country without the long drive! Sunrise and sunsets are quite spectacular times to go out on the water!

Other things to note: Make sure to wear swimsuits and/or comfortable athletic wear. All guests must be comfortable in moving water & know how to swim. We only operate in good weather/winds conditions (refunds/rebooking available if so).

Mel was very accommodating and friendly, she welcomed us with open arms. Mel made sure to go through all the safety procedures and routes prior to us getting in the kayaks. All in all it was an amazing experience, 10/10 we recommend!!

This is highly recommended. It was amazing! Mel is an amazing host and she is a true kayaking professional with great tips. She is very kind and allowed us extra time on the kayaks for arriving early! The scenery in the area is top notch. There are many amazing bird species flying all around you. Definitely worth it!

Mel was very welcoming and clearly experienced. Even though we’ve been kayaking before all her pointers about the water and how to kayak were interesting to learn and made it easier to kayak. The location is breathtaking you can’t get enough of it!! What a great way to share her passion with kayaking with the world 😍😍

Mel was an amazing host! Super knowledgeable and had my partner and I out on the water in no time, equipped with the skills needed to easily maneuver the kayaks and enjoy our time on the water! Was a perfect day and a beautiful location!
