Check Out This Summer’s Ride Dates and Register Today…
Hit the waves in a Watercraft Ride For Dad Sea Doo tour this summer – don’t miss being part of the best PWC adventures of the season! In my recent article about barriers to Sea-Doo riding, I note that lots of people own a Sea Doo, Jet Ski or Waverunner personal watercraft in Ontario and throughout Canada, but for many reasons never seem to go anywhere on it. If this describes you or someone you know, registering in a Watercraft Ride For Dad for prostate cancer may be the perfect way to kick-start exciting, new PWC riding adventures for experienced riders or beginners – and me on my Sea Doo GTX S 155!
Founded in Ottawa in 2000, Ride For Dad is a uniquely Canadian idea that has spawned many homegrown motorcycle, snowmobile, ATV, and now, watercraft events. Watercraft Ride For Dad is a bunch of PWC riders getting together for a memorable day on the water to raise money for prostate cancer research and public awareness. It’s an unbeatable opportunity to socialize with other watercraft owners, to explore a new waterway – and to connect with new riding buddies. You’ll go on a tour, enjoy some great food and maybe win a prize, all for a great cause.

Watercraft Ride for Dad is looking for more events, so if you’re interested in starting one of your own, get in touch. If you can’t make any of the rides above, you can still participate in the Watercraft Ride For Dad by going online to pledge a rider (If you don’t know anyone, just pick a name – your donation goes to a great cause!) Where else can you find an organized watercraft ride? Nowhere as far as I know – Watercraft Ride For Dad is one of a kind, so register early because the number of participants is limited to make sure everyone has a good time. Who knows, I may even see you there! #ontariowaterways
