During the summer season, Écorécréo and KSF are set up at the Jean‑Doré Beach water activities Pavilion and provide clientele with a range of watercraft rentals, including:

  • Canoes
  • Kayaks
  • Pedal boats
  • Stand-Up Paddleboards (SUP)

For an activity that’s out of the ordinary, for taking a break in the bucolic setting of the Beach, or for simply trying out a new type of water craft, you’re definitely in the right place.

Shielded from the wind by a vegetation belt, the waters on the lake at Jean-Doré Beach are usually calm, which allows you to safely wend your way without sapping your energy. You can leisurely navigate between the Beach’s swimming area and the Casino de Montréal, or you can discover the central part of Île Notre-Dame and the perimeter of the Floralies Gardens by taking the big loop around the lagoons.

Why not try this pleasant and easy activity with your family or among friends on one of those gorgeous summer days at the Beach.


Introductory SUP courses and Yoga and Fitness classes on boards are also offered by the KSF. More details.
