Overview

At the Banff Canoe Club we think everyone should have access to the wonderfully Canadian sport of Canoeing. Rent a canoe or Kayak from us and explore the gentler section of the Bow River or head up forty mile creek into Vermillion Lakes. We think you will love it so much, that you'll be back for another paddle before long!

Evening wildlife safari. Only saw beaver but that was superb. Looking for wildlife is always hit or miss. Although we only saw beaver we had a brilliant close up view. Tranquil river. Guide, Lucy was enthusiastic and informative.

It's a pretty expensive canoe rental, but given the high demand it's understanding. The river is fantastic and the canoes are very high quality.

We had a lovely afternoon canoeing the Bow River in a canoe rented from the Banff Canoe Club. The river is a beautiful aqua color and crystal clear. Lovely mountain views. More reasonable prices here than Louise or Moraine.

They certainly do! We were 2 adults with one small child, so the canoe suited us better. But kayaks were there for the renting!

Hi there We do have a certain quota of canoes that can go offsite per day. Unfortunately we don't take reservations so it is first come first served. The Banff Canoe Club opens on may 14th. Hope to see you then!
