Boats, boats everywhere! Now that the warmer temps have arrived, it's time to take to the water and enjoy these cool boating- and fishing-related activities in and around Montreal.

Voiles En Voiles. Arrrgh matey! Check out Voiles En Voiles in the Old Port! With courses at different heights and difficulty levels, they offer an experience that’s fun for adults and children alike. In addition to their aerial courses they also have rock-climbing walls, bouncy houses and more!

Fishing Festival at the Laval Nature Centre. Fish for free and without a license as part of the Fishing Festival! For the occasion, the lake will be stocked with thousands of trout, and the bag limit will be five trout per person per day. This activity aims to introduce families to the practice of fishing. It runs May 19-21.
