"It’s one you’ll want to watch over and over again." - Kevin Callan, Canoe personality, Filmaker and Author

Our Canoe Adventure Film RISING WATERS documents an attempt to be the first group to run all the rapids of Newfoundland’s lower Terra Nova River in Tandem Canoe.  At the start of the decent, water levels were 50 per cent higher than the group had hoped and heavy rain during the trip pushed the levels higher, increasing the group’s anxiety.  The story also connects two generations of paddlers that love the river.

I was nervous of what would be expected of me. Those fears were quickly put to rest. The course format advocates skills advancement in a fun and enthusiastic way.
