Rec Rentals @ the Docks
Canoe, kayak, paddle, pedal, or SUP — make a splash at Rec Rentals this summer.
The Welland boat rental program is now Rec Rentals @ the Docks. We honour our past by highlighting our former shipping canal and celebrate the future by bringing movement back to the water through recreation. Rec Rentals is conveniently located in the city’s centre, offering more space for gatherings and picnics. Our expanded inventory means more people can enjoy exploring the canal. Come visit us and discover our waterway activities.
