The Banff Canoe Club welcomes everyone! If you choose not to join the Banff Canoe Club, you can still rent a canoe / kayak or SUP as a non – member. Check out our rental rates here.

Boat Availability

Our fleet includes 30 Clipper canoes and 14 Perception kayaks. We also have some Stand Up paddleboards (and wetsuits) for offsite rentals. Rentals are on a first come, first serve basis. Please let us know if you have a large group and we will make every attempt to accommodate you.

 

Prerequisites required?

No previous experience is required for membership. Boat dock staff will offer a short orientation for all new members to the equipment.
 

Guest policies

Canoe rental rates are based on 2 people in a canoe. Only one person in the canoe needs to be a member to receive the special member rate. We encourage members to bring guests and introduce them to paddling.
