Went in late July. The river was warm and not too rough. There were some very mild rapids, but nothing to get too excited about. The service Grand River Rafting provided was... read more

After reading so many positive reviews on this site, I am reflecting on the day spent rafting on the Grand River with my niece (14) and two of her friends (13 and 11) recently. While at the end of the day, the girls said they had a "great day", it was not without some surprises for novice paddlers, and I... More

Went in late July. The river was warm and not too rough. There were some very mild rapids, but nothing to get too excited about. The service Grand River Rafting provided was top notch. The map they provided could have provided some photos to help you get your bearing but that's just minor. My girlfriend is afraid of rough water... More

Only really novices and with some moments got it all together in a canoe and had a great day. And to top it off saw the bald headed eagle at the pickup point. Recommend this to anyone. Great people both ends and drive back to the start. Great organisation.

My sister and I spent a memorable day with our fabulous guide, Cliff, from Grand River Rafting. We chose the peddle and paddle adventure. Checking in with Grand River Rafting was easy and we started of on the bike (singular) as we opted for the tandem bike! Never done before, but we had a lot of fun. The bike ride... More

A last minute day off gave us the perfect opportunity to try something we always wanted to try...a trip down the grand river! Not only was the day fantastic, seeing so much wildlife including 4 species of turtles, an eagle, osprey, a doe and fawn, and muskrat, but the staff was amazing! Adam took lots of time to explain what... More

We just happened to find the Grand River Rafting company in through a Google search, and are we ever glad we did!!! We had a fantastic time and while we floated along the river, were already planning the next time we wanted to go, and what family and friends we wanted to bring! There were 6 of us in our... More

If I could give them a score of ZERO I would. My boyfriend and I went here last weekend, during our experience we were given damaged equipment, the dry bag we were given to keep our items in had a hole in it. At the point in the trip where you are supposed to take your phone out and call... More

What we excel at is our service to provide complimentary items that our clients may have forgotten. And one of those complimentary items, is a very large 35-40 litre dry bag for each customer to use. We have well over 75 of these bags in circulation on any day. We understand that these dry bags can get damaged with customer... More
