Owner description: 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.

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 booked at our hotel in Banff on the same day and got there early for the 6 PM trip. Even though we only saw the beaver family, it was worth going as we learned a lot about bears and the wild life in this area. Our guide Lucy was so much fun to be with. She was knowledgeable and joyful every moment she spent with us. Also, the river allows for excellent pictures to be taken.

Took a trip on the fantastic River Bow with Jack from Melton Mibray as our guide. He was excellent. Funny. Calm. Knowledgeable. Shame his Canadian visa runs out shortly!

The trip was excellent. Last time I canoed was 15 plus years ago on the Dordogne inFrance. The water there was considerable warmer!

Great scenery. Didn't see any wildlife unfortunately. Probably because other river users were making noise having fun

Highly recommend on your visit to Banff

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.

Great experience today with Jono and Dale on the group canoe trip! Both were hilarious and we had a great time learning and laughing. Perfect way to spend a clear day in Banff with the gorgeous blue waters!
