THE HANDI-BOAT FOR 2024 OPENS ON MARCH 4TH

Welcome to our Home Page. Our calendar for the 2024 season will be open for bookings about March 4th.

We had an awesome season in 2023 with 600 guests accommodated of which 79 were in wheelchairs! Thank you to all the remarkable recreation therapists, guest volunteers and to all our Captains and Mates who made 2023, our 25th year of operations, a season to remember. We have only met or exceeded 600 four times in those 25 years..

Given the great interest, we would like to continue to increase the number of trips that we can offer by proffering weekend trips and late afternoon trips.

WEEKEND TRIPS. Although the calendar is not currently ‘available’ on weekends, we will make weekend trips available on request.

SHARED TRIPS. For smaller clients who would be willing to share a trip with another smaller client, the Handi-Boat Society will be willing to facilitate such an arrangement.

MULTIPLE TRIPS. For those larger clients who would like to bring out more than one group, we could accommodate more people by making more than one trip in a single day.

If you are interested in exploring any of these options, please notify the Booking Coordinator at info@handiboat.ca

The Handi-Boat Society of Alberta is a 100% volunteer organization, but we appreciate donations to help defray our capital expenses and operating costs. We are a registered charity, and we can provide a receipt to anyone interested in supporting our activities.

We currently encourage clients to offer a $200.00 donation per trip to help cover expenses. Our actual expenses are approx. $450.00 per trip. If you would like to sponsor us and have a company decal that can be put on the boat, this can be arranged.

We are always looking at ways to better our organization. Over the past few years we took on a massive project to upgrade the dock at Ghost Lake to allow everyone to enjoy the area especially those whom are disabled. We would like to continue to help. There are many things that can be done with your support.

We are continually looking for volunteers in different capacities. Consider volunteering as a first mate, a captain, project director or even a board member. We guarantee that after a few trips you will see how heartwarming this experience can be.

We would like to thank our clients and donors for their continuing support and look forward to serving you this year. WELCOME ABOARD!
