Experience a moonlight or night paddle on the Grand River under the stars.

We offer guided moonlight paddles by raft, canoe or kayak.

This is a 12 km paddle where the guide teaches about the valley and the stars.

We meet a half hour before dusk to prepare for night rafting... normally between 8:00-8:30pm.

Moonlight Paddles for 2017...  June 9 & 10, July 7 & 8, August 4 & 5, September 8 & 9, October 6 & 7th... but you can also do a night paddle anytime under the stars.

Good news... hardly any biting bugs on the river at night!

Listen for beaver, deer, owls, herons, raccoons, coyotes and fish splashing.

We meet you at the end point where you park your vehicle... then shuttle you upstream to the start point... where you paddle back to your vehicle.

People are amazed at how well they see. Their sense of sound increases acutely.

There is something different about peering out and experiencing darkness.   

With night comes an amazing world of activity. There are fish splashing as they feed in the darkness. There are the ripple lines of swimming beaver and the explosion of their tails... the snort of alarmed deer... the dinosaur gawking of the Great Blue Herons.

A forest of  twinkling fireflies in June… endless chorus of crickets, frogs and toads… the symphony of the night. But the highlight is the howl of coyotes or hooting horned owls echoing down the corridors of the valley.

 

"Stargazer Rafting Is An Authentic Escape!"

(Customer TripAdvisor Review)

With Garth at the helm and a full moon, we couldn't have pick a better choice to enjoy our summer evening by rafting down mild rapids and meandering through the river in twilight and cozy darkness.

The constellation gazing, fresh spring water tasting (ahhhhhh), night sounds and the professional, knowledgeable and personable guide made this a thoroughly positive escape!... more

           

How Our Trips Work... we meet you where your trip ends... shuttle you upstream... equip you with everything... and down the river you go with your guide.

When you arrive at the end point... your vehicle is there... ready to head out... homeward bound or off to your accommodations.

 

We keep it simple… everything is looked after by us… and you enjoy the day!
