A beautiful and relaxing day on the river. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Canoes are clean and well maintained. The price is reasonable, $25 for 45 min. Starting and finishing points are at the same place, no need for a shuttle service. The paddling distance is about 1 km, so you have plenty of time enjoying the scenery, waterfall (dam) and swans. Make sure to plan an extra time for finding a parking spot.

We had an amazing and super fun experience at Elora Paddle Company. Since we wanted to visit on a Saturday, we called and booked in advance. Once we arrived, James gave us a brief tutorial since it was our first time paddling and helped us get set up. We paddled 2 times from the bridge to the fall during our 45 minute time slot and were amazed by the beauty of nature both times.

We were here on Saturday the July 24th, 2021. That was our first canoeing experience and we really enjoyed it despite the rain. We booked online and informed James (The young entrepreneur) that we will be late by 20 minutes, and he responded promptly. The street was crowded, and we found difficulty to finding a parking spot. James asked us to sign a form, gave the life jackets and explained the strokes as that was our first time. There were 2 swans and a waterfall to watch for. James, the owner understood that we couldn’t enjoy much as it was raining hence, he gave us a free pass to visit another time. Overall experience was very good and would recommend this place.
