Private Boat Shuttles on the Grand River

Want to bring your own boat to explore the Grand River?

At the start of each day we offer a private shuttle service for people with their own kayaks, paddle boards, tandem kayaks and canoes.

You can choose from three different routes.

Our paddling trips range from 11 kms, 13kms or 17 kms.

Our paddling routes are in a wilderness setting… with good wildlife viewing. The beauty of the valley is nature unexpected.

The Grand River warms up quickly, averages 1 m in depth, moves about 2-3 kms/hr and has shallow rapids on a stony bottom.

HOW IT WORKS:

We have you park at the end point… load your boat onto our shuttle trailer, go through the route map, then shuttle upstream to the start point. At the start point you get your boat, then take as long as you like paddling back to your vehicle. At the end point, our staff helps you off the river.. and you walk 400 m to your vehicle, bring your vehicle down to pickup your boat… then home!

PRICES & INFO:

The Cambridge route is 17 kms with a variety of quiet strips and easy rapids… not suggested for beginners because of length. The cost is $35 for single kayaks & SUPs… or $35 for canoes or tandem kayaks plus $10 per person plus HST…  Learn More.

The Glen Morris to Paris is 11 kms and has more faster moving water on it. Beginners can do it… good to travel with someone experienced. The cost is $25 for single kayaks & SUPs… or $25 for canoes or tandem kayaks plus $10 per person plus HST… Learn More

Price includes boat & people shuttle, map talk, free park access and Blue Canoe Vouchers for discounts on food and services with nearby merchants.

With us, your safety is more important then your money. If water temperatures are below 10 C, we will not put canoes or kayaks out, because if the boat tips there is a hypothermia risk.

We want you to enjoy your trip… not endure it!
