Can you Kayak at Professor’s Lake?

Yes you can!  You can rent a kayak or bring your own. I purchased an 2-Person Inflatable Kayak on Amazon to take the kids out on the water and it was perfect for Professor’s Lake.. You can bring your own Kayak, canoe or stand up paddle board to professors lake.  There is a small fee of $5.70 per craft (for 2021) for heading out on the water.  You park and pay the fee at the recreation centre, then grab your water craft and head into the boat launch area.  There is a sandy area off to the left-hand side of the docks where you can launch from.  I would recommend you have your water shoes on as you may need to walk a few steps out into the lake to launch.  And if you don’t have your own kayak you can rent one from the recreation centre.
