Rental Rates

Rent a canoe or kayak 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.

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 paddleboards from the docks.
