The Claybanks

Get set for adventure, beaches and wildlife on this tour from Meaford Harbour to Christie Beach and back again.

Get an overview of the Bighead River watershed, discover John Muir’s history in the area, paddle past Memorial Park, revel in the colourful history of the area and maybe even see a bald eagle!

You’ll have the opportunity, depending on the season, to spot some carp, as well as visit the stunning – and home to an elusive green heron – Claybanks area.

This tour features a beach stopover with washroom facilities and a shaded pavilion available at Christie Beach.

Collingwood Docklands

This round-trip tour departs from the boat launch in Collingwood harbour.

We’ll head to the Silver Creek Wetland for a unique birding opportunity, and explore the history of shipbuilding and maritime travel in Collingwood.

Wind and waves permitting, this tour includes a visit to the historic Collingwood lighthouse. No matter the conditions, you’ll discover the link between Southern Georgian Bay and British naval history’s most famous era.

We’ll hone your skills and impress those on the shore in Collingwood’s inner harbour before venturing out to the secretly stunning, and wild, shoreline west of this vibrant maritime community!

Owen Sound to Leith / Balmy Beach

This round-trip tour departs from the boat launch south of Kelso Beach.

We’ll introduce you to the Sydenham and Pottawatomi watersheds, and dig into Owen Sound’s history as a maritime gateway to all the great ports on the Great Lakes.

On this tour we celebrate the First Nations history in the area, including its original name, as well as the area’s important place in Underground Railroad history.

As you paddle through Leith, we’ll brush up on your Canadian art trivia by learning about Tom Thomson, and his history in Leith.

Lake Eugenia Tour

This round-trip tour departs from the boat launch in Collingwood harbour.

We depart this round-trip paddle from the boat launch on the south end of the lake.

We’ll describe where you float on the Boyne River and Beaver River watersheds. Prepare to be surprised by the fascinating history of this man made lake and the village of Eugenia, including: the Eugenia gold rush, early power plays, and the haunting of Eugenia Falls and how Eugenia got its name, or, the Crimean War in Canada.

Lake Eugenia is a great inland paddling option on days when when wind and waves make tours on the open waters of Georgian Bay unfeasible.
