Grand River Tubing, Yaks & Paddleboards
|CLICK TO BOOK NOW!|
Tube the Grand River... or take a stand up paddleboard lesson-trip, both unique ways to explore the valley. We also offer two person kayak-rafts called "yaks" which are super stable and hard to tip over. In fact when the river is unsafe to canoe, we often offer our yaks as a safe substitute.
The Grand River averages 1 meter in depth with a 2 km/hr current speed... so if you tip over, stand up! The wilderness around the river is beautiful... bring your camera to capture the day.
The trips are about 4 hours in length. Along the way there are eagles, ospreys, turtles... fresh water springs to drink from, places to body-surf and even picnic areas with washrooms.
The logistics of the trip is simple... we equip you with everything needed to do your paddling adventure (paddle, life jacket,dry bag & boat)... when you arrive at the end point, you call us and we take you back to your vehicle.
With us there is no time limit... we really encourage you to leave your watches behind and enjoy the day.

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.
