St. Mary's Boat Club was built in 1905, and was originally operated by The St. Mary's Young Men's Temperance & Benevolent Society. It was established as St. Mary's Boat Club in 1919.
After extensive renovations, it was re-opened in the summer of 1991 and currently offers recreational programs year round.
Canoe, Kayak, paddle boards
For fun on the water, the lower deck offers canoe rentals and provides canoe, kayak and sailing instruction to thousands of youth every summer.
Did you know you can also borrow stand up paddle boards from Halifax Recreation? Or why not join one of our Kayak Paddle nights?
All rentals for canoes and stand-up paddle boards at the Boat Club are required to be booked in advance by calling 902-490-6666 or online at www.halifax.ca/myrec. Entry will not be permitted without advance booking.
