The best kayak rental spots around Montreal

Jun 8 2021, 7:55 pm

Now that the weather is getting real toasty for the spring and summer months, have you considered adding kayaking to your Montreal to-do list?

Because you probably should.

Kayaking is a great workout, a fun way to explore the city, and it’s a cool way to, well, cool off. Not to mention, you’re literally on the historic Saint-Lawrence River and the Lachine Rapids.

It’s like the bike path, only waterier.

KSF is right at Rapids Park in Lasalle and they offer surfboards, paddleboards, and kayaks as well as all the gear needed to tackle the water.

H20 Adventures offers kayaks at arguably the best spot to go kayaking — right on the Lachine Canal behind the Atwater Market.

They also offer giant swan boats just in case you really want to stand out.
