Sunday Voyageur Paddle and Picnic
Chaque semaine le dimanche
Join our Sunday group voyageur canoe daytrip, along with those from other groups. Enjoy an afternoon on the water and island beaches with new friends, on our big canoe adventure on the Ottawa River. It's like being a tourist in your own city, paddling in a large, stable 6-person canoe, similar to those early explorers first visited here in. Destination: We have 8 different routes we can take. Each route is a voyage into history. Sights include Rideau Falls, shipwrecks, ambassador estates, Parliament Hill, archaeological sites, sandy islands for picnics and swims, wildlife, and hidden bays and inlets. Bring your own lunch and feel free to turn things into a potluck if you want to share. If the weather is absolutely fantastic, we can also hang out on the deck afterwards or head to a nearby restobar and talk about more summer paddling fun to come. If the weather isn't so great, it is still a good time for active comradery. Bring friends! They will thank you. Itinerary: Meet 10:45 am at the Ottawa New Edinburgh Club boathouse’s front entrance. Launch by 11:15 am to paddle up to Parliament Hill or to one of the Island Beaches for a swim, depending on what the group wants. Participants are welcome to bring their own lifejackets and paddles, if they so choose. Please note: All participants agree to accept their own risk of participating in this event, as waivers will be signed. Bring: Lunch, water, snacks, sunglasses, hat, swim suits, towel, change of clothes, cameras (not responsible for loss or getting wet), and rain gear if weather changes. Weather: If rain is predicted, this often means just a passing system. By the time you get to the dock, the rain clouds have moved on, so please come anyway. The best paddling is always after a rain, when animals come out and colours pop. And, if we do get caught in the rain, bring a rain poncho. Psychologists say that our best memories are often from times of inclement weather. True! Price: $50 for large canoe rental and guiding. ** Sunday series will continue into October too.
