What you'll do

After contacting us, a member of our family will meet clients at the dock with everything required: kayaks, paddles, and safety equipment (life jackets, whistles, bailers, rope). We will explain how to kayak, which is very simple, and where to go. Within the protected, calm area, where sailboats are docked, clients can practise before setting off.

Simply, follow the shore line, which moves in and out, and see Hamilton from a new, intimate, beautiful perspective.

Paddle back.

We will, again, meet clients at the dock, help them disembark, and ensure they had a good experience. The entire time clients are on the water, we will be close by with cell phones on.

The entire experience takes place along the popular shoreline, so clients will always feel safe.

At the start and end of every session, all equipment that you come into physical contact with will be completely sanitized.

We love Hamilton, our hometown, and are eager and proud to show it off. We are an adventurous, outdoor family, who love to try new activities. Last year, we moved to the Bay Front of Hamilton. Our first acquisition was two kayaks. Paddling around The Bay (a.k.a. Hamilton Harbour) instantly became a favourite activity.

Kayaking around The Bay Front is simple, fun, safe, and beautiful. The Hamilton Bay Front is resplendent with parks, trees, fish, boats, and a plethora of waterfowl; more ducks, geese, swans… than imaginable.

Kayaking is a better workout than the gym and more Zen than yoga!

Our family would be delighted to share this affirming activity with others. We’ll meet clients at the launching dock and ensure they feel safe and help them choose a route.

This was our first time ever kayaking and we loved it. I was a little nervous at first but all my questions were answered and I felt at ease even before getting out into the water. They were even kind enough to take photos of us and send it after. It was a lovely experience and I would definitely do it again. Highly recommend!

Timing was perfect ,drop off and pick up. Kevin was polite and friendly. Our only issue was that one kayak was too small.

Jonathan was super helpful and easy to coordinate with. The kayaking itself was amazing, we loved the views and just paddling out into the lake. Beginner friendly too! Recommend it if you’re in the area.
