Tour to the Old Port
Join us as we explore the beautifully restored and rejuvenated Lachine Canal!
Discover the interesting nooks and crannies that make-up the historic "Cradle of Industrialization." Witness the majestic birds, turtles and beavers that call the canal home while we look upon the changing landscape of the Montreal Skyline.
We'll pass through the St-Gabriel locks and explore the Peel Basin, (the future home of the Expos) and cruise past Griffintown as we paddle towards our destination; Montreal's world famous Old Port, where we stop for lunch.

Kayak and brewery tour
For this sunset kayaking tour, we will depart from the Lachine Canal Nautical Centre and head West towards the St-Paul locks. We will learn about the history of the canal and the surrounding neighbourhoods as we travel south of the downtown core offering a unique view of the city.
We'll quickly get out to see the locks and historical plaques before entering the St-Ambroise Brewery for a drink on one of Montreal's first micro-breweries and most scenic and popular terraces.
Participants then take part of the brewery tour where they receive a free pinte of beers, three samples and a special treat before we return as the sun sets and the city lights up.
