IMPORTANT INFORMATION – Please read before booking your trip

  • Each Paddler will be provided with a kayak, paddle, Personal Flotation Device (PFD), and map of the river
  • Both our launch and pick up point is located at the Indian Channel Boat Launch in Spring Lake. We will meet you there, where you can park your car during your trip – no shuttling required.
  • The Indian Channel Boat Launch requires a Michigan Recreation Passport for parking.  If you are from out of state and need a passport you can purchase an annual pass hereor a daily pass at any Michigan State Park.
  • Each Paddler is required to wear a PFD at all times while on the water
  • The difficulty of kayaking on the Grand River is easy to moderate. This mostly depends on how windy it is that day.  On a very windy day the water will be choppy and more difficult to paddle through.  We recommend checking the weather before booking your trip.
  • On the weekends (especially Saturday) there is more boat traffic. Please stick to the edges of the river to avoid other watercraft.  If you would prefer to paddle on a day with less boat traffic we recommend booking on a weekday.
  • Anyone using a single kayak must be 10 years of age. For younger children we suggest renting a tandem kayak shared with an adult.
  • Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Each paddler will be required to sign a liability release waiver before beginning the rental. An adult will be required to sign off for minors.
  • If you return from your trip late, you may be charged for additional rental time.
