Who Are The Old Salts?


We are canoe enthusiasts aged 55+ who enjoy the outdoors, the water and each other's company.

Members of the Old Salts Seniors Canoe Club get together for a weekly canoe trip on Tuesday mornings (weather permitting) throughout the season on lakes and rivers in southwestern Ontario. Thursday paddles are also planned as well as evening paddles that we fondly refer to as "easy breezy"! Although most of our trips are within an hour's drive from the KW area, some trips may be further away to give our members a change of scenery with new experiences and challenges.

We've enjoyed exploring the Grand River, as well as other rivers like the Saugeen River, Conestoga River, Beaver River and the Speed River (to name a few).  Lake paddles include Puslinch Lake, Floradale Lake, and Guelph Lake (to name a few). We always have fun and ice cream  seems to be the reward at the end!

Trips are planned with the skill levels of our members in mind from our "easy breezy" paddles to our more challenging paddles that include navigating some rapids and practicing skills learned in our training sessions! Whatever your skill level, we always have fun.....
