Whitewater canoeing in Ontario CanadaWhitewater canoe tripping in Ontario Canada

The most spectacular of Lake Superior’s rivers, the Agawa flows 30 kilometres through a dramatic canyon landscape. A perfect learning river for new whitewater canoeists, the Agawa features nearly continuous easy to intermediate whitewater. On this guided whitewater canoe trip, you’ll learn how to safely paddle a tandem canoe in moving water and enjoy some of the most scenic paddling in Ontario.

This trip is designed for canoeists with good flatwater skills who are looking to become competent moving water trippers. The trip begins on Friday afternoon with a flatwater stroke review at our Lake Superior Paddling Centre. On Saturday morning we access the Agawa River via the Algoma Central Railway, a historic line that once carried the Group of Seven and Bill Mason into the wilderness. At Canyon Station we disembark for two days of whitewater instruction and enjoyment.

En route you will have plenty of time to learn how to read whitewater rapids and practice manoeuvres like eddy turns, and ferries under the watchful eye of your experienced guide. All rapids have portages for those looking for a less exciting adventure. The trip ends where the river crosses hwy 17 just north of Agawa Bay Campground and Visitor Centre.  Your shuttle will bring you back to our NSA base or for an additonal cost, we can bring your car to you for a speedy getaway for southbound guests.

" Ginny and Ryan were all anyone could want in wilderness guides, and this reconfirms my long-held conviction the N.S.A. is the best outfitter afloat. "
