For over 50 years, we’ve paddled Canada’s less traveled waterways with canoe trips throughout Ontario, Quebec, Nunavut, and the Yukon. We’ve pioneered many new routes during that period, always looking to find adventure and fun off the beaten path. In the mid 90’s we began offering sea kayaking in Baja and Florida during the winter and more recently have expanded this to similar adventures in Central America. Please browse our upcoming trips and start making plans to join us on the water. If you have questions, we’d love to hear from you!

Overview

The Dumoine is not only an ideal river to learn or practice introductory whitewater skills, it is also considered one of the prettiest rivers in Central Canada. Located within easy driving distance of Toronto, Ottawa or Montreal the river is flanked by majestic white pine forests that shelter five star campsites. Combine all this with perfect whitewater for teaching and you have a canoeist’s paradise.
This easy adventure canoe trip is geared for the intermediate and less experienced paddler. While whitewater experience is helpful it is not necessary—a strong flatwater background will put you in good stead. For those who want we can spend lots of time teaching on the river’s enjoyable class I and II rapids. Some nights we will camp beside spectacular falls or rapids. This is one of the finest wild rivers in central Canada and our river trip is sure to provide paddling enjoyment for canoeists of all skill levels.

Day 1:

We will meet in the village of Swisha at our shuttle drivers hous at 8:30am. You will leave your cars here (pick up spot – $20 for parking). After meeting the group we will embark on our trip into the Dumoine River just above Lac Benoit. This van ride should take about 3 hrs.

Day 2:

Today we will truly begin the descent of the river. The day and the rest of the trip will be spent enjoying the beautiful scenery and fun filled whitewater of the Dumoine River. There are two nice easy class 1 rapids to warm up on and then a larger class 2 which we will scout.

Day 3:

We may spend some time running the lovely rapids that occur at the outwash of Little Steel Falls before heading off downstream. Down the river, there are several swifts and rapids before Burnt Island Lake.

Day 4:

In the morning, we will carry the rest of our gear from the campsite down to the bottom of the portage (500m). Below there are several easy R1 rapids before Robinson Lake. The fun begins below the Lake with Red Pine Rapids.

Day 5:

This day involves our final day of whitewater and the end of the trip. Below Red Pine rapids there are several kilometers of swifts and R1 rapids, once again the scenery is stunning. We then reach Examination Rapid a double ledge.
