Choose Your Adventure

You will have access to the majestic, winding Grand River and the many bayous along it.  The possibilities really are endless, however, we have selected several tried and true trips to make the navigation a little easier on you.  Below you can explore the different bayou trips and select one to fit the length of trip you desire.  Or feel free to create your own route and journey anywhere you please.  Maps will be provided for you.




Dermo Bayou

Approximately a 3 hour paddle, this trip is excellent for observing the area’s wildlife.  Keep an eye out for nesting swans, swimming muskrats, and the red heads of Sandhill Cranes hiding in the reeds. This trip will take you through the Indian Channel, along marshlands, and into the Dermo Bayou.


Pottawattomie Bayou

This is a perfect trip to enjoy a day out on the water complete with a lunch break.  A relaxed paddle takes roughly 4-5 hours including time to stop at beautiful Pottawattomie Park, located about halfway through the trip.  A great place to picnic – the park has grills, a swimming beach, and restrooms.


STearns Bayou

This trip takes about 3-4 hours.  Paddle under the large Green Street Bridge to enter into Stearns, an open yet relaxing bayou with many interesting waterfront homes.  Eventually, the path will narrow until you reach a secluded and winding Lilly pad wonderland.




Robinson Bayou

A 3-4 hour trip that will take you into areas not accessible by other boats. A large open area turns into a secluded bayou providing a private journey through marshlands and along the forest. You can expect to see many types of waterfowl, along with deer and other animals along the coast.
