White Squall Paddling Centre was born in 1985 with the simple desire to share the outdoors and paddling with others. Beginners of all ages, experience the fun of paddling with us in a quiet and easy way. White Squall is a leader in sea kayaking and offers a full range of skill and instructor certification through Paddle Canada for keen beginners to experts – with some of the best teaching staff in Canada. More than that, we simply love paddling through the islands of Georgian Bay, the largest freshwater island archipelago in the world and a UNESCO world biosphere reserve, and hope you’ll let us share that with you.
Our trip groups are small, with a strong attention to environmental awareness. The geological and natural story of our coast is a fascinating tale. Wholesome, hearty meals are a highlight after being on the water, and you’ll have lots of time to swim, explore and simply take in the solitude of the Bay and her islands. Trips are led by a fully qualified guide and assistant guide and often a third apprentice comes along for training. Our friendly staff will guide you on your way even if you have never kayaked before. So come join us in exploring the thousands of windswept pine islands of Georgian Bay for a course or a trip of a lifetime!
