Family Fun

White Squall’s been getting families outdoors and on the water for over 30 years! Bring the whole gang for your choice of a custom family adventure or send the kids to us for an evening of Paddle Play for Kids. If you have teens, we also do super memorable Georgian Bay overnight trips. Whatever you choose – we guarantee smiles all ‘round.

Family Day Trip ~ Private

Bring your own picnic lunch for your family, and we’ll make sure there’s time for swimming in the crystal clear waters of Georgian Bay. We want the children to have a good time, so the emphasis will be on paddling at their pace.

Georgian Bay Overnight Trips

Youth Kayak Trips

Squall youth trips are at the heart of what we do. We purposely subsidize the cost to keep it affordable and see this as our opportunity to give a little back. Getting kids outside, camping and paddling – it’s one of the best remedies we know for our increasingly wired world. Skills learned will stay with them for a lifetime and the camaraderie of wilderness travel is pretty special.

The Youth Adventure is our classic intro to sea kayaking on the Bay while the Sweetwater Expedition is a big step into a sea journey on freshwater.

In both cases, we ask participants to come with a smile and desire to be out there. We’ll look after the rest!

Family Kayak Trips

Whether a weekend getaway or an epic expedition, we can customize a Georgian Bay adventure for you & your family. Can you imagine anything better than being out with your family, not having to worry about planning the food, or picking a route; it’s a pretty sweet life for sure!

Private trips provide the ultimate flexibility in terms of location, group size, pace, food. We recommend that folks start these trips with basic paddling and rescue skills, but we can discuss arranging lessons on the first day.
