A bit about Peninsula Paddlers
The Peninsula Paddlers Kayaking Club was founded in 1991 by a group of like minded, paddlers who wanted to add a social aspect to their paddling. Over the years the club has grow and we now have an average annual membership of 80-90 members. While the majority of our members live in the Niagara Peninsula we also have members from outside the region including Hamilton, Buffalo, and Kitchener to name a few.
The official start to our paddling season is the first
Sunday in May. Our regular schedule includes weekly, evening paddles
to give our working members an opportunity to unwind during the week.
These paddles are scheduled on alternating Tuesdays and Thursdays and
generally paddlers are out for about 2 hours exploring the various waterways
around the region. We also offer Wednesday morning Ad Hoc Paddles for
our more adventuresome paddlers.
We also include a number of “special event”
paddles such as night paddles to watch the Canada Day fireworks, “costume”
paddles for Halloween and Christmas
The club also offers at least one multi-day trip each
year. Some of the trips that club members have paddled over the years
include: the Rideau Canal, the Trent Canal, the Bruce Peninsula, Massasauga
Provincial Park, Huntsville, the Kawarthawa Lakes and the Adirondack
area. Depending on the area, multi-day trips can be self-contained,
back country trips, trips with arranged accommodations or a combination.
