This is a personal web site about paddling the lovely Seine River in Winnipeg. It includes a link to a map that is a very detailed guide to different sections of the river, places where you can put-in, and some hazards and fun stuff to watch out for.

The map, with pictures and information on more than 40 points of interest, is just below. Click the icon in the top left to reveal the control tab and the list of points of interest, with photos and descriptions of each one. You can switch to satellite view (once the control tab is open, scroll to the bottom of it) and zoom in very, very tightly to see exactly where things are.

Below the map, I describe the river in six sections that take between 1.5-3 hours to paddle upstream and down (returning to your start). 

Feel free to open the map in a new tab (top-right button), zoom in to any given area, and follow along.

I now have 22 places on the interactive map where you can launch your canoe or kayak. It may seem a bit overwhelming, so I'm putting up my five favourite places, for those new to the Seine, to start a quick journey that should only take you an hour o...

The rain we had two weks ago has made some parts of the Seine (in South St. Vital) navigable again, at least for a few more days. Went out yesterday from Shorehill to the perimeter and the canoe never hit bottom (the paddles did on some inside turns)

Scouting out the river today, it seems the dry weather has made most of the river impassable for a canoe (kayaks might fare a bit better). Baring a deluge of rain, the only section that might be doable in the short term is in River Park South, upstre...
