Paddling Courses

Immerse yourself in the beauty of the Kawarthas and travel by canoe with The Canadian Canoe Museum. Our adult canoeing programs are suitable for anyone over the age of 18 looking to learn the basics of canoeing or build skills for your next on-water adventure. We are proud to teach skill levels laid out by the Ontario Recreational Canoeing & Kayaking Association (ORCKA). Our ORCKA-certified instructors are knowledgeable, patient, and keen to help you make the most out of your time on the water. We’ll help you perfect your strokes and hone your technique to make paddling more efficient and fun!

All required equipment is supplied by the Canoe Museum (canoes, paddles, PFDs and safety kits). Participants are responsible for bringing their own lunch. Check out our recommended packing list.
