One of North America’s Great Lakes, Lake Erie provides for spectacular views of nature, through an expansive shoreline that also happens to be the southernmost in all of Canada.

Spend some time savoring the sun and sand at any one of our popular beaches including Colchester Beach, Cedar Beach, Seacliff Park, or at the Polish Beach Club.

A leisurely canoe trip from Cedar Creek Conservation Area all the way to Cedar Beach affords many stunning views of wetlands, forests and wildlife along the way.

If you are looking for a picturesque spot to drop your canoe into the water, Point Pelee National Park may be just the place! One of the smallest yet most ecologically diverse parks in Canada, approximately two-thirds of the park is made up of freshwater marsh, creating a quiet and protected area to explore.  Bring your own or rent a canoe or kayak and access the water via the Marsh Boardwalk.

Pelee Wings is a destination onto its own for nature lovers and paddling aficionados; providing a large selection of kayaks, paddleboards and gear, coupled with experiential offerings featuring evening paddles throughout the summer, complete with sunset dinners and kayak & sup private and group lessons.

Bask in your own private island getaway on Pelee Island, situated between our southern shore and Ohio, and sporting a number of scenically attractive access points linked to nearby beaches and conservation areas.
