Our 36-foot (12m) long voyageur-style canoe is ideal for Great Lakes paddling. It is seaworthy, very stable and easy to paddle for all abilities. The canoe is outfitted to meet Canadian Coast Guard regulations including all safety equipment, lifejackets and paddles. Easy on-land instruction is provided before getting on the water.

Safety is a priority for all Canoes for Conservation tours. LSWC’s guides evaluate the weather, water and wind conditions prior to all tours. Participants will be informed 24 hours prior to departure if the tour must be rescheduled. Rest assured that participants have the option to reschedule the tour, or receive a 100% refund in the event of LSWC tour cancellation.
