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

Our Quoich River (west Branch) Canoe Adventure offers some of the best northern barrenland scenery, paddling, hiking and fishing anywhere and we are the only people paddling this route. Archeological evidence of past Inuit and Tule use of the land is dramatic. If you like the idea of paddling (or fishing) where other people do not, this is definitely the trip for you.
