Full description
Enjoy the calmest section of the beautiful Bow River on this 2-hour kayak trip. Marvel at the clear water on the river that originates from the Rocky Mountain glaciers.  Meet at your starting location by the river where a friendly staff member will wait for you with your kayak and all the gears.  Experience the Calgary cityscapes and natural sights on Bow River, take in the fresh air, and even hop in the water for a swim or a float down.  After 2-hour of fun on the calm sections and easy rapids of Bow River, you can self-guide yourself to the drop-off point, located down the river at St Patrick's Island by the Calgary Zoo.  A staff member will be waiting for you there to pick-up all the equipment from you that you don’t need to run around to return items. Choose between a single or a double-kayak to make the most of your adventure.
