Weather Conditions

Planning ahead for the day’s weather conditions will make your visit to Point Pelee more enjoyable.

Strong wind conditions play a significant role in your safety whether you are swimming on the beach or renting canoes in the marsh.

The Friends of Point Pelee canoe rentals will be closed when wind or storm conditions are threatening. Our trained staff monitors the Environment Canada Marine forecasts and radar to ensure conditions are favourable for paddling in the marsh.
