    Has anyone been to Lord Byng pool during the public Kayak drop-in? I want to take a friend there to practice wet exit/rescue but not sure if I can bring my own kayak, which entrance to go through etc. Any practical tips you could share would be appreciated.

    Public kayak sessions at Byng pool are on Fridays from 8 PM until 9 PM from September through November and January through mid-June, cxcluding holidays. The cost for each session is $6.41 per person (including tax), assuming that you bring your own kayak. As Maureen mentioned, you can rent a kayak but there is an additional charge. A maximum of 12 kayaks are permitted in the pool. Registration is in-person only starting at 7:30 PM prior to each session. It is best to register shortly after 7:30 in order to ensure that you get in, although attendance has been sparse recently.

    Hi Tracy, It is better to take your own kayak. They have a few there, but they are old style river boat without sprayskirts and paddles are fixed at 90 deg.

    Please ensure your kayaks are free of sand. There is a hose in the corner if you need to wash it.

    Have fun!
