Starting May 21, you'll be able to rent pedal boats in the shape of a swan as the nautical company Aventures H2O returns to Montreal for the warm season.

To hop on one of these bad boys, simply go to the waterfront of the Lachine Canal, near the Atwater Market, at least 15 minutes before the time of your reservation, which can be made online beforehand.

You'll have the option of reserving your swan-shaped pedal boat for a 30-minute, one-hour or two-hour ride on the Lachine Canal.

And if you're looking to get a head start on your summer planning, the site says that "reservations will open seven days before the session," so start looking at the time slots available as of May 14!
