Looking for some relaxing time on the water? The Banff Canoe Club offers canoes, kayaks or SUP rentals; a quintessential Canadian activity. From the canoe docks, paddlers can explore a gentle leg of the Bow River or follow Forty Mile Creek into the Vermillion Lakes. Both routes offer stunning views and opportunities for wildlife viewing. The Banff Canoe Club is located just 5 minutes from downtown Banff, and is a fun and convenient adventure for all ages. Our season is from mid May - September 30th, depending on weather conditions. Rentals are first come, first served, we do not take reservations. If being a passenger is more your style, join one of our Big Canoe Tours. These 12 seat canoes are fully guided, so help us paddle while learning some fun facts about the area and keeping your eyes peeled for wildlife. These tours depart throughout the day.
