Our Youth Adventure (ages 13-16) trips have taken hundreds of kids to the crystal blue waters and pine-clad islands of Georgian Bay for over 25 years. This program is staffed by our top guides, chosen for their ability and training to lead younger groups safely. We start with a half-day on-water session here at our centre where we’ll teach you the things you need to know, so no sweat if this is your first paddling trip. Then we’re off to launch sites like Snug Harbour or Dillon Cove to head out for 3 nights to the islands of Georgian Bay. It’s a great opportunity to be with a peer group in kayaks, setting up camp and learning to navigate among islands and along the coast. We focus on beginning leadership skills, and encourage everyone to support each other in this exciting wilderness adventure. We’ve been offering it for over 20 years at a reduced rate, to get as many young people out to see this world biosphere – you won’t forget it!

White Squall is my yardstick for great kayak paddling adventures – and their stores are awesome too. All staff from owners, sales and guides are competent and just plain nice.
