Calgary and the surrounding area offers a plethora of potentially amazing opportunities for you to experience and enjoy. The city combines an exciting Wild West tradition with a modern cosmopolitan flair, close to some of the most jaw-dropping scenery in North America. It also offers an incredible food, arts, and shopping scene that attracts increasing numbers of visitors every year.

One of the most wonderful ways to experience the fun of this great city lies in taking a kayak or raft trip with The Paddle Station, Calgary’s favorite way to have fun on the water. 

A Memorable Way to See One of Canada's Great Cities

The Bow River flows from out of the nearby Canadian Rocky Mountains and its breathtaking views. It then graces the city of Calgary, offering unique and impressive views of the downtown area and other landmarks. A kayaking sojourn through Calgary will give you the most memorable experience in surveying the many beautiful points of interest in the area.

This includes St. Patrick’s Island, a special island park in the middle of the city, offering visitors many ways to enjoy the river. 

The Paddle Station offers the best array of services for those looking to include a kayaking or rafting journey in their Calgary visit. 

Sign Up to Rent Kayaks Online Or In Person

We offer online rentals with the click of a button. Reserve your requested day, then choose from among our different leave off locations. Your kayak will be waiting for you and your group at the water’s edge. Our crew will be waiting for you at the end of the trip to pick up the watercraft.

You can also rent directly from one of our paddle stations or over the telephone for an additional $5.00 processing fee. 

Our leave-off station is located in Shouldice Park and the pick-up location on St. Patrick’s Island. Both locations give some of the best vantage points from which to enjoy the city by traveling the Bow River. 

We Eliminate the Hassle And Leave You the Fun Parts

Packing your own kayak and supplies can be a real hassle, especially if you have made exploring a city your primary reason for taking a trip. No one wants to worry about what could happen to a kayak strapped to the roof of a car while in a hotel room.

The Paddle Station eliminates the hassle. We meet you at both the leave-off and the arrival points, inflating the craft and taking care of everything but getting you in the boat and rowing for you. This includes all required safety equipment and other necessary gear.
