When we started H2O Adventures in 1996, our goal was to share our passion for paddle sports. In 2001 we opened our shop on the Lachine Canal.
Today our fleet includes over 30 kayaks of all shapes and sizes from noted brands such as Necky, Old Town Canoe, Perception, Dagger, Delta Kayaks and Boreal Designs... No flimsy sit-on-tops or cheap discount store kayaks here.
Members may select from more recreational beginner models, mid-range sea kayaks or high-end fibreglass* sea kayaks. Both solo kayaks and tandem kayaks are available to members.** We also have pedal-kayaks and canoes available with certain plans.
Please note that all safety equipment is provided by H2O Adventures. A course is not obligatory but highly recommended for those with no experience. Good technique will make you more efficient and comfortable in your kayak. Members receive 25% off the cost of a course.
Kayaks are available on a first-come-first-served basis. As such, it is advised to reserve ahead of time. (Reservations are available online up to 2 weeks in advance)
Unless otherwise specified or agreed upon, there is a maximum of 2 hours per rental day.***
Kayaks must remain on the Canal; Take-away rentals are not permitted.
Membership plans are not transferable to others.
Membership Cards are not exchangeable and a photo ID must be presented along with the card on each visit.
Family Memberships are the only cards that may be shared among people. A maximum of two adults per plan.
* Gold Members only.
** A $10 per hour surcharge must be paid if one person in the tandem is not a member. A buddy pass may also be used in lieu of the surcharge. No charge for Gold or Family Members.
*** Exceptions are happily made during quiet periods.

We believe that kayaking is a sport best shared with friends and family. That's why each membership comes with a set amount of Buddy Passes.
These passes allow you to paddle with a friend or guest for up to 2-hours with each pass at no charge.
Buddy Passes are noted on your membership card.
