Our two person yaks are very stable like our rafts… great for non-swimmers or parents taking children.
The Grand River Rafting Company offers two different yak routes to explore the Grand River.
Our tandem yak trips range from 11 kms or 13 kms.
Our tandem yak 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… equip everyone with gear and map, then shuttle upstream to the start point. At the start point you get your boat and 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. Easy as that!

On the Paris to Brant Park trip, you can take a one hour yak lesson before your trip. The cost is $25 per person plus HST
With your tandem yak trip… you can go on your own with a map… or hire an interpretive guide to travel with you down the Grand. A guide is $150 plus HST.
Price includes boat, life jackets, paddles, bailer kits, dry bag, complimentary upstream shuttle ride, free access to parks and Blue Canoe discount vouchers for food and services with local merchants.
Basically we look after everything… you just bring yourselves and your lunch.
With us, your safety is more important then your money. If water temperatures are below 10 C, we will not put kayaks out, because if the boat tips there is a hypothermia risk.
We want you to enjoy your trip… not endure it!
