About The Banff Canoe Club
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! Rent a canoe, kayak or stand up paddleboard. For those new to the sport, we offer Big Canoe Tours. Choose from the River Explorer or Wildlife of the Bow tour and explore the river with your guide.

Overview
Get a different view of Banff National Park on a canoe tour along the scenic Bow River. Traveling by canoe lets you get out in nature and see wildlife up close without the exertion of hiking. Plus, the big canoe enables your whole group to be together in one place rather than being split up into smaller canoes. This makes it ideal for families with small children.

We were a party of twelve tourists from USA and Canada visiting Banff vising in the first week of September 2018. We canoed and rowed boats. The guide Mr. Austin was very warm and friendly person who helped us with the history of Banff, and was very patient to let us watch beavers and various birds across the lake. It was very enjoyable outing in the evening. Check it out.

Such a great experience!! I have been going canoeing at the Banff Canoe Club for years and I always have such a great time! The staff is always friendly and informative, and I was very pleased to see all of the precautions taken into regards to COVID-19. I felt very safe, and comfortable. Thank you for always providing this experience for myself and all other visitors!

We loved kayaking in a beautiful and quiet natural environment. Our guide Austin was knowledgeable, friendly and is passionate about his job. He shared stories and answered our questions.
