We run guided kayak tours on the sections of the Grand River where it flows through Haldimand County, from Caledonia in the north, through York, Cayuga and Dunnville to Port Maitland, where the river meets Lake Erie.
We also offer sea kayak tours on Lake Erie, as well as extended kayak/camping trips to places like Algonquin Park, the Bruce Peninsula, and along the Lake Erie shoreline between Long Point and Rock Point Provincial Parks.
We also offer a selection of tours on special events, such as Mother's Day, Father's Day, Canada Day, full moon tours, and fireworks paddles.
