The Parry Sound area offers incredible paddling opportunities, spring through fall. Summer is prime season for canoeing, SUP and kayaking. But no matter what the season, Parry Sound is the kind of place that makes you plan the next trip back before you even leave.

We have a wide variety of paddle experiences for you to choose from. Explore our paddle operators and enjoy these pictures as you plan your next paddle getaway in Parry Sound.

WHITE SQUALL PADDLING CENTRE

For 30 years, the owners and staff at White Squall Paddling Centre have shared their passion for kayaking with thousands of paddlers. On June 24th, 2018,  White Squall presents The Franklin Challenge – A 20 km circumnavigation of Franklin Island by paddle (kayak, canoe or SUP) to raise funds for Treetops Community Forest.

A shorter route option of 8 km is available for those not wishing to do the full 20 kms. It’s definitely not a walk in the park ~ this is a challenge for intermediate paddlers. If unsure, but strong and keen, consider paddling a tandem kayak with a friend. You will have the time of your life! Please visit their website for more details.

ONTARIO SEA KAYAK CENTRE

Ontario Sea Kayak Centre (OSKC) is one of Canada’s leading kayak instruction schools. Located minutes from Parry Sound and Georgian Bay, Ontario Sea Kayak Centre is a peaceful retreat for weekend kayaking lessons and coaching. The 16-acre property on the Seguin River has canvas-wall “Glamping” tents among the trees and a waterfront perfect for kayak skill development.

If you going to be in the Parry Sound area for a day and want to really experience what Georgian Bay has to offer, come on a fully outfitted sea kayaking day trip with Ontario Sea Kayak Centre. We can accommodate groups of up to 6 people on most days. Day trips require a minimum of two participants to run. Due to the nature of the elements and outdoor adventure trips are dependent on the weather. Daytrips depart from Killbear Provincial Park, Snug Harbour or Parry Sound Harbour depending on weather conditions on the day. Please visit their website for more details.

Women on the Water Festival

Our festival is now in its fifth year! We are teaming up with Wild Women Expeditions again this year to offer this amazing women’s only weekend. We will again be bringing together some of the most celebrated kayak, canoe and standup paddleboard coaches in the paddling scene in Ontario.

Women On Water is open to all women, from beginners to advanced paddlers, featuring Canoe, Kayak and Stand Up Paddling (SUP) skills sessions.

Our festival will bring together some of the most celebrated coaches in the paddling scene in Ontario including Dympna Hayes, owner of Ontario Sea Kayak Centre and all of the other amazing female coaches at OSKC.

Meet other Wild Women paddlers, check out the great kayaking, canoeing and SUP sessions, including coaching clinics for advanced paddlers to hone paddling and rolling skills.

BLACK FEATHER WILDERNESS ADVENTURE

With over 30 years of paddling experience providing trips to destinations around the globe, Black Feather has become one of the leaders in kayak tours.

There are tens of thousands of islands in the region. Collectively they are known as the “Thirty Thousand Islands”, and most of them are along the bay’s eastern side. In October 2004, the area was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. Black Feather sea kayaking holidays explore this coastline archipelago, and camp on islands and in beautiful protected inlets. Ask them about their Georgian Bay excursions.
