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, kayak or SUP 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! 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 booked this tour very spontaneously and we were not disappointed! Our guide Ryan was an amazing and very funny guy who made this kayaking experience even more memorable. The views are absolutely beautiful. We’ve never done kayaking before and I have to say it went great! I would recommend bringing something to cover your legs from the water that drips from your paddle or just an extra set of clothes to change to after.

Had an awesome time on a kayak tour with Mitch B! He was super friendly and knowledgable and talked us through the local wildlife along the bow river. Highly recommend the kayak tour - we enjoyed it so much we’re planning on hiring a couple of kayaks ourselves to take out on the bow!

Paddled right past some elk cows with their cavs. One of a kind experience. Part of of a 13 person canoe trip including our guide Ant. He developed a great rapport with the group and was able to answer all the questions we threw at him.
