Staff are great and the electric boats are a fun way to see the sights. You’ll get a different perspective from the water and enjoy seeing the yachts travelling to and from the locks.

Best place to rent a kayak pedal boat or electric boat in Montreal. Located near Atwater Market. Metro Charlevoix.

A really great way to see Montreal, and some really scenic spots. Tour guide was excellent (and shared lots of interesting anecdotes that helped give you a sense of the city's history), and it's a really lovely spot to paddle.

Hi Molly, sorry I only just saw this. Unfortunately none of those things are permitted on the Lachine Canal. SUP's either.
