I was 16 years old when I went on my first canoe trip on Lake Ontario. And I fell in love with canoeing on calm waters ever since. Whether you want to enjoy the spectacular view of Toronto skyline or simply witness a perfect sunset over Lake Ontario, canoeing is your best option. If you love swans and ducks, you will definitely love canoeing on Lake Ontario. Did you know that Lake Ontario got its name from an Iroquoian language which means “lake of shining waters”? Formed by melting of glacier, Lake Ontario is the 14th largest lake in the World. It has diverse species of underwater creatures moving back and forth to the lake and the ocean since it is connected to the Atlantic ocean.
