What a great trip! The staff was amazing - friendly, knowledgeable and gave some details about the river. It was nice to know all the secret places to stop and explore :) Registration was easy, pickup was fast (maybe 10 minute wait). Canoe's were in great shape and easy to paddle, which always makes for a better trip. Thank you... More

This SUP trip from Paris to Brant was awesome. We were 3 middle-aged ladies with beginner experience and this was a great way to spend our Sunday. Right from the booking process GRR was great to deal with. When we arrived, everything was very organized and although there were quite a few customers, they did not rush through any part... More

So you drive to a central meeting point and you are bussed to the starting point. You grab a tube, which is more like a mini open kyak and you get a paddle and life vest. Then you cruise down the river....it takes about 3 hours and its very relaxing. Some parts are a little swift...but just barely. Then you... More

Picked up our Kayak, paddles and lifejacket at 930 at their storefront and paddled to Brant Conservation area in about 2/12 hrs with a short stop for a snack. We were given a short orientation and tips to avoid the rocks. I brought along a snack and a few ice teas and waters. We dropped off out kayaks around noon... More

We did the Paris to Brant trip on a Tandem kayak. They gave us everything that we needed including paddles, life jackets, waterproof bags and a big map. Instructions were easy and they picked us up at the end and drove us back to our cars. We saw blue herons, deer and osprey. Highly recommended! Great staff.

Very fun to raft. Make sure to go on a day without too much sun. Great customer service. Great value, rafting might be a bit slow and boring. Maybe try advanced path.

Our trip was a custom built one that had us canoeing from Glen Morris to Cockshutt bridge, with camping about the mid way point. Camping was on Grand River Rafting own land, and we were able to leave our vehicle there with all our supplies. The shuttle also picked us up there and dropped us back off at the end.... More

We booked the Paris to Brant route and rented a canoe. We had taken some canoe lessons prior to this and been out on the water but only on the Credit River where the water doesn't really move. I had called in advance to make sure this route is "okay" for beginners. I was told that there are some small... More

We selected the tube option and was given 2 very comfy tubes with a dry bag for our stuff and ziplock for our phones. We set off with paddles and it was a gorgeous day, we leisurely took our time and let the river do most of the work. Water levels are low this year due to the lack of... More
