Ontario Sea Kayak Centre and Wild Women Expeditions are pleased to be bringing you this epic women’s adventure on Georgian Bay.
Paddle the stunning French River Delta out to the sparkling waters of Georgian Bay on our premiere eight-day Ontario kayaking adventure.
As you kayak the French River you will feel the rich history around every bend in the river. This historic transportation route has remained relatively undisturbed throughout time and has the distinction of being nationally recognized as a Canadian Heritage River.
We will kayak our way down the French, starting at Hartley Bay into Wanapitei Bay, then paddle the Western Channel down to the French River Delta and into Georgian Bay. Out on the Bay we leave the park and paddle along the shoreline of the protected islands of the Bay as we make our way to the beautiful waters of Byng Inlet. The islands of Georgian Bay, known as the 30,000 islands are crown protected and offer endless possibilities for that perfect campsite to swim, relax and enjoy the spectacular sunsets of the Bay.
You begin with an afternoon coaching session with Paddle Canada certified instructors and one night at Harmony Outdoor Inn in Parry Sound. The next morning you head out for an eight-day sea kayak trip with 7 nights backcountry camping. Over these eight glorious days of paddling, you will travel at a relaxed pace, taking time for exploration and skill building. This trip is perfect for women who have some coastal paddling experience but also suitable for novice kayakers up for a challenge. This trip will provide you with an opportunity to be introduced to sea kayaking skills and practice in the beauty of nature. By the end of this adventure, you will feel more confident with the basics of kayak types, strokes, self-rescues, navigation, and journeying.
