SUMMER 2017 UPDATE:  Yes, our signature Canoe Paddle is still running, with a couple modifications – a MORE INTERESTING paddle and MORE DELICIOUS food?


Celebrate Canada in style this summer on our Canadian Signature Experience enjoying a spectacular locally sourced menu, created + prepared by our friends at TOCA from The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto.

Our one-in-a-lifetime adventure begins with a leisurely Toronto Harbour paddle to the beautiful Toronto Islands in a heritage voyager Canoe, a replica of those used by early Canadian settlers.  Explore Toronto’s Bird Sanctuary, paddle past beautiful sailboats and yacht clubs all while we hear about the natural geography and history of the area.

Enjoy your first gourmet snack in the Canoe, as you continue to paddle + explore the Islands, their mysterious channels and breathtaking views of Toronto, while the Culinary Adventure Co. and TOCA culinary teams prep your culinary adventure back on shore.

As the beautiful summer evening winds down, paddle back to the city, taking in the magnificent skyline view from the water. Our departure will also be timed to enjoy the stunning sights of jets taking off and landing at Billy Bishop airport.

Once back on “terre firma”, relax and tuck into your amazing meal of seasonal ingredients, local meats, fish, salads – paired with Ontario Artisan Cheeses, Handmade Charcuterie, House-made Breads and more. Plus, save room for fine pastries and delicious sweet bites for dessert.

Enjoy your meal, on the edge of the city harbour, in the shadow of an Inuksuk, and watch the beautiful colours of the sun set over the island, and the dynamic dots of kayaks across the harbour … you will immediately forget we are in the centre of Canada’s largest city.

A truly unforgettable Canadian experience.
