Get inspired by our lists built around a theme, and experience Montréal to the hilt.
Operating out of the Lachine Canal Nautical Centre near the Atwater Market, H2O Adventures offers boat rentals, tours and team-building activities on Montréal’s beautifully restored historic waterway.
The H2O Adventures fleet includes a wide array of vessels, ranging from swan-shaped pedalboats (a hit with the kiddies) to traditional 4-seaters; solo and tandem kayaks; eco-friendly electric boats and voyageur canoes. Visitors may admire Montréal’s stunning skyline as they paddle alongside ducks, herons, birds of all kinds, turtles and even beavers.
Why not book your Saturday morning to explore the flora and fauna of the Lachine Canal by kayak? After portaging the St-Gabriel locks, the tour explores the Peel Basin, continues through Griffintown and ends at the Old Port with a picnic lunch. Introductory kayak courses are also available.
Intrepid paddlers will get a kick out of the Voyageur Geocache Challenge, where teams of up to 13 voyageurs compete in an interactive challenge along the Lachine Canal. Equipped with a GPS device, binoculars and an old map, teams must navigate the canal in large canoes to complete the most challenges. Fun with friends, family or colleagues as a team-building exercise.
