Highly recommended. Was the highlight of the day. In reality we only travelled a short stretch of the river but it was a lot of fun. Suitable for beginners including a 6 year old. The canoe is stable and we did not get wet at all. Nice and friendly staff. I think this is better than the tubing (also very good) found in the park.

My boyfriend and I had such a great time at Elora Paddle Company! The person there was super chill and helpful in explaining everything we needed to know since it was our first time. They provided us with PFDs, locked storage space, and optional dry bags (and of course a canoe and paddles). It was a lovely day and the canoeing was a very calm and peaceful experience. The guy was also very supportive and encouraging of our beginner skills. It was also very affordable!

James has a very user-friendly booking system, making it very easy to see the available times to rent canoes. He has everything you need for a safe and enjoyable canoe experience. He is very knowledgeable about the surrounding area so you can have a little getaway not far from the city. James is an all-around great guy who will make sure you have a wonderful time on the water! Thank you James!!
