Grand River Kayak Trips
|CLICK TO BOOK NOW!|
Kayaking the Grand River is actually easier to learn then canoeing. Many first timers take a one hour lesson before journeying down the river on their own
The Grand River is a great beginner river, averaging 1 meter in depth with a 2 km/hr current speed... so if you tip over, stand up! The beauty of this wilderness is unexpected... people find it hard to believe they are 1 hour from Toronto.
Our Grand River kayak trips can be customized from 2 to six hours in length. There are fresh water springs to drink from, places to body-surf and even picnic areas with washrooms.
The logistics of the trip is simple... we shuttle you to the start of your trip then you paddle back to where your vehicle is parkes, we equip you with everything needed to do your kayak trip (paddle, life jacket,dry bag & boat).

It is important to recognize that the weather-news channels are about 20% accurate in their daily forecasting... we are around 85% accurate!
If the weather is bad, we will contact you telling you to save your money and not come. With our cancelation you can get a full refund or pick another date... whatever is best for you.
Also if water levels are what we consider unsafe to paddle... we will cancel our trips with the option to raft or go in a non-tip yak... your safety with us is more important than your money!
We are the only incorporated outfitter business on the river carrying full liability as required by the Grand River Conservation Authority.
We have risk management plans in place, adult waivers and youth consent forms... and our interpretive staff is top notch, undergoing a 3 week training course.
