The Whistler Adaptive canoeing program builds skills in a controlled and safe environment on scenic Alta Lake and Green Lake using equipment provided by Whistler Eco Tours. With instructors guiding your progression on dry land and in the water, our courses build water safety skills and techniques and creates a solid foundation for a sport that can be shared with others.
In a 2-hour session, participants can start at Wayside Park and circumnavigate Alta Lake or spend time in a protected bay to get used to being on the water, learn water safety skills and practice strokes. From Edgewater on Green Lake, Whistler Adaptive can take participants up part of the River of Golden Dreams or hug the shore of the glacier-fed mountain lake while watching float planes take-off and land. Whistler Adaptive aims to have a two to one instructor to athlete ratio.
