Launch Points

Kayaking Route

Down the Humber River to Lake Ontario. Dependent on weather, we might also go through the mouth of the river and into Sunnyside Beach..

See our proposed route map here.

Post-Kayaking Plans

Lunch at either Rocco's Plum Tomato Trattoria (Italian) or Just Greek. Both have free street parking nearby on residential streets.

Post-Trip Notes

There is a shallow portion between the primary boat launch and the public boat access point. Stay along the west bank of the river. It might be best to just launch from the secondary point next time.

Pretty interesting sights and views, calm water, lots of birds to see and lots of parking even when we arrived at 10:15am on a long weekend Sunday. We didn't make it all the way down to the mouth of the river and turned around just above South Humber Park (just out of view of the bridges!).

We went to Rocco's Plum Tomato and they took forever. We were there for 1h 45minutes, totally unacceptable.
