WHITE SQUALL PADDLING CENTRE

In 1985 White Squall Paddling Centre was born. Our vision then, which remains today, is simple: share our love of paddling and the outdoors with others. For over 30 years, paddlers of all ages and levels have experienced the joy of paddling with us in and around the 30,000 Islands – the largest freshwater island archipelago in the world. We’re darn lucky to have this as our backyard, and we look forward to sharing it with you!

Exploring the Cathcarts Sea Kayak Trip (available August 15-19)

This is a quieter and less paddled area, and with our signature Squall trip meals and a glass of wine while watching the sun go down on the open bay…summer days don’t get better than this.
