About Us

Welcome to the Home of PMH Outdoors!

 Pat and I have had a wonderful Adventure since 1992, providing quality guided canoe trips and adventures, certified canoeing & kayak instruction on the waterways of the Ottawa Valley, Ontario and Canada; wherever you had need for us!

During the summer of 2019 we did a road trip north to the Yukon Territory and completed our last guided Canoe Trip into the Brokenback Range of the Rocky Mountains paddling the amazing Snake River!

Another chapter in our book of life is complete as we transition from a full guiding service to doing limited custom Canoeing and Kayak Instruction!

Pat and I want to thank all of our amazing clients, who have become great friends friends and who have shared the magic of PMH Outdoors wilderness canoe trips over the past three decades! Let the Adventure continue!

Client Comments:

"I think that it is the challenges that make a trip memorable in a very good way. It is good to be able to push ourselves beyond our comfort zone as it allows us to see just what we can do. This trip did this for me and I must say that I am now hooked (on Canoe Tripping) for life!" Rachel Doucet-Wells

"Thank you for such a wonderful experience, that trip was something I've been wanting to do my whole life and through your guidance and experience it surpassed my expectations." Adam

"I am a lot more comfortable with my paddling strokes and I feel I am better equipped to teach canoeing effectively" Judy Gregg

"I can't thank you enough for the time and excitement that you brought us, in our quest for learning & loving the outdoors and how we will be able to responsibly show others." ORCKA Canoe Tripping Course participant 2006
