Paddle To The Amazon 

The true story of a father and son’s incredible 12,181-mile canoe trip from Winnipeg to the mouth of the Amazon River.

It was an ordinary 21-foot canoe. They were an ordinary family – a divorced father and his two teenage sons. But what they did was extra ordinary. From Winnipeg, they paddled heading south. Twenty-three months later, two of them swept down the Amazon to Belem, Brazil, on the Atlantic – the longest canoe trip ever recorded.

Dana Starkell was 19 when he undertook the two-year odyssey with his father. In the course of this adventure, he cured his asthma and honed his skills on the classical guitar. He now makes his living as a motivational speaker and professional musician.
