TRIPS AND RATES

Grand River Kayak & Canoe Rentals has trips ranging from one hour to one week to meet everyone’s abilities and needs.  The suggested Trips below show the approximate number of hours required to make the destinations and include shuttle service.  Hourly canoe rental is available for those who wish to just spend a leisurely afternoon on the Grand and do not include shuttle service.  Each canoe rental includes Coast Guard approved life vests for each individual at no extra cost.  We can also rent kayaks and canoes by the day or the week!

Lessons available!  

All lessons are given by qualified instructors.  

For more information concerning kayak or canoe lessons call the livery.

1-800-ME-CANOE.

Large Groups:  A $50.00 deposit will reserve the date and an approximate number of kayaks and canoes.  Groups of eight or more kayaks and/or canoes MUST have full payment one week in advance to secure their reservations and qualify for group rates.  Any kayaks and/or canoes added after the one week reservation deadline, will pay full price.  This not only helps group leaders get commitments from their participants, it also helps to ensure that you will have an adequate number of kayaks and/or canoes for your trip.  Avoid disappointment by reserving your dates as early as possible!

Trips go as scheduled—rain or shine—so come prepared in case of rain.  Grand River Kayak & Canoe Rentals closes only due to dangerous water or severe weather conditions. 

Private kayaks and/or canoes can be handled with the Livery’s kayaks and canoes at half the Trip Rate. 

 

A GOOD WAY TO GO -


"PADDLE, PICNIC & PLAY ALL DAY"

Enjoy the wilderness at your own pace. Paddle up and down river. Bring a picnic lunch, fishing pole, binoculars, camera, etc., and have a wonderful day.

• Have fun maneuvering through Alligator Alley.
• Take a dip at Beaver Bend.
• Sneak up on wildlife through Blue Heron Haven.
• Search for fossils at Bronson Creek and Red Man's Riffles.
• Fish for Bass, Walleye & Muskie.
• Beautiful place to go birding or watch the River Otter play.
• Sleep in a real Native American tipi.
• Listen to Stories about Sasquatch and how he fishes the Grand River.
