We offer canoe rentals and trips on the Grand River. The canoe is the hardest boat to steer!
Max number is 3 adults per boat or 2 adults and two small children. Please call or email us to book 2 adults and 2 children.
If you are a first time or a beginner… we do not recommend choosing a canoe to paddle the Grand River, because a canoe is tippy and more difficult to steer, especially if you are inexperienced at paddling in moving water.
For a beginner on a river, we suggest choosing the Five Oaks route… or renting a two person non-tip yak or a tandem kayak, instead. Or taking our one hour canoe-lesson before doing your trip.
Suggested Ages: 3 years and up, with an experienced canoeists steering (an experienced canoeist is someone that has the skill to paddle in moving current).
Suggested Maximum Weight: the canoe has an 800lb capacity. We do not suggest the canoes for people over 200lbs each. Call us if you have weight/size questions.
NO ALCOHOL ALLOWED… Please remember that no alcoholic beverages are allowed on the river… it is Federal Law and can result in OPP charges.
Grand River Rafting reserves the rights to inspect all bags and coolers being brought on trips. If alcoholic beverages are found, you will be asked to kindly return the beverages to your vehicle. If someone refuses inspection or refuses to leave alcoholic beverages behind, they will not be allowed to go on the river… and there will be no refund.
