You can compete with the moon and stars to see what glows more out on Lake Champlain this summer. The O Lac Aquatic Centre is offering night-time paddleboard and kayak sessions on illuminated crafts. Once the sun goes down, the colourful, glowing vessels become the only source of light on the water.

The glow-in-the-dark sessions take place in Venise-en-Québec just one hour south of Montreal near the US border.

Each excursion starts at 9:30 p.m. and lasts an hour. You're expected to arrive half an hour early to get ready.

The activity costs $40 per person (plus tax) unless you have your own equipment, in which case the price drops to $25 per person (plus tax).

If you go the rental route, both paddleboards and kayaks (single or double) are available and come with all the necessary accessories, including a life vest and glow-in-the-dark accessories.

You should also bring your own headlamp and mosquito repellent.

To book your spot you need to send an email to and them know how many people will be taking part and whether you need to rent a paddleboard or kayak. If you get enough friends together, you have the option of booking a fully private trip on the lake.

Glow-In-The-Dark Paddleboard Nights With O Lac

When: July 29 & 30, August 5, 6, 11, 12, 13, 19, 20, 26 & 27, and September 3 & 10.

Where: 200 Ave. de Venise O., Venise-en-Quebec

Cost: $40 per person, $25 if you bring your own paddle board plus tax.
