You need to make reservations by email or phone in advance... because we meet you where your trip starts.

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.
