When we started H2O Adventures in 1996, our goal was to share our passion for paddle sports.
Our Atwater Market location on the Lachine Canal has over 30 different kayaks and canoes available for single rentals, or annual memberships.
Our fleet includes a couple of canoes and 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 COSTCO 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 (2 place) kayaks are available to members.**
Please note that all safety equipment is provided by H2O Adventures. A course in not obligatory but highly recommended for those with no experience. Good technique will make you more efficient and comfortable in your kayak. Members receive 10% 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. (Reservation 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 cards 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. Only one card is issued, maximum two adults per card.
* 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.

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.
