Even for a landlubber “someone unfamiliar with the sea or seamanship” this is enticing. Silverstone Paddle Company is located in Frenchman’s Bay Nautical Village at the foot of Liverpool Road in Pickering. Frenchman’s Bay is a well-sheltered bay, protected from overly choppy waters, meaning this area is a great place for a beginner like me to try paddling. Luke Peterkin, the owner has been canoeing since age 11 and kayaking since the age of 12, he offers canoe and kayake lessons, guided tours and equipment sales and rentals that begin at about $20 for a couple of hours.
