Rental Rates

Rent a canoe, kayak or SUP from the Banff Canoe Club, located at the corner of Wolf Street and Bow Ave,  in downtown Banff. From the canoe docks, paddlers can explore a gentle leg of the Bow River or follow Forty Mile Creek into the Vermillion Lakes. Both routes offer stunning views and opportunities for wildlife viewing. We do not take reservations for rentals. All boats are on a first come, first served basis.

Every canoe or kayak rental begins with basic tips before heading on the river. The Banff Canoe Club rents canoes, kayaks and even stand up paddle boards from the docks.

The Banff Canoe Club offers rentals by the hour. Check out the rates below. The rates are per boat (based on 2 people). There is an extra charge of $10 for the 3rd person in canoe. We do not take reservations. Just head down to the docks to see if a boat is available. If you think you'll visit us more than once this season, check out our membership option, which allows you to join the club and receive discounted rental rates.
