The Big Dipper

Built by expedition paddler Mike Ranta to commemorate Killarney’s 200th anniversary in 2020, this monumental paddle, weighing 22,000 pounds, spans 107 feet in length and 17 feet in width at the blade. Made from Eastern White Cedar, it is the world’s largest paddle.

A time capsule has been embedded in the shaft of the paddle, to be opened 200 years from now, marking a significant connection between past, present, and future. Killarney Mountain Lodge is proud to have assisted in this historic endeavor.

Inspired by the paddlers he admired and encountered during his journeys, many of whom are veterans, Mike Ranta dedicated “The Big Dipper” as a tribute to those who have served the country. Featuring a prominent poppy, it offers a spot for visitors to sit, reflect and pay homage, embodying a truly Canadian way to remember and say thank you to these heroes.
