Love to rent these kayaks. It is a great outdoor sport that can be shared with family members. Nothing better than being out on the water. I would recommend this to anyone who is visiting the area.

This reputable company never fails to please! This is the second time I've kayaked with 1000 Islands Kayaking and a guided tour is worth doing at least once. Ben, our guide, was knowledgeable (from kayaking techniques to the geography of island formation) and enriched our 3-hour kayak trip. If you're in the Ottawa or Kingston areas, this is a must...

Kayaking around the Islands was so much fun and relaxing. Our guide Alicia was wonderful - knowledgeable - and a lot of fun. Lunch was delicious, such a variety - no one will go hungry. You do not need your camera, our guide took a lot of great pictures and emailed them to us that same evening. We are already... More

I went with a group of grad students kayaking (half day) out on the St. Lawrence with 3 guides and had a FANTASTIC time! We were all a little concerned that we would get rained out, but the weather held up. The instructors were professional yet very jovial and light-hearted, which made the experience even more enjoyable. I really loved... More

We had a relaxed tour and heard interesting information on some of the islands. Definitely enjoyed this way of exploring the islands a lot more... More
