A full service paddling experience, GR Paddling offers guided trips (both kayak and canoe) down 21 reaches of the five major rivers in the Greater Grand Rapids area (Grand, Rogue, Thornapple, Flat, and Coldwater) as well as six area lakes (Reeds, Wabasis, Duncan, Gun, Green, and Lowell Dam Backwater). Trips are available for groups of up to eight paddlers. These trips are great for tourists, small companies, families, and outdoor enthusiasts.
Groups are picked up and returned to their home, business, or hotel within the Grand Rapids area. We pick you up! How cool is that?
Paddlers are taught different paddling techniques (if requested) and necessary safety information. Binoculars, water/sports drinks, towels, and other amenities are provided for use during the trips.
The mission of GR Paddling, LLC is to provide guided kayak and canoe excursions in and around the greater Grand Rapids, Michigan area, utilizing local waterways as a way to increase appreciation by educating the public in the protection and value of our natural resources, and to promote area tourism through healthy, safe and responsible adventure activities.
