Canoeing the Grand
From Elora to Cambridge, the Grand River rolls smoothly over a shallow bottom, averaging a mere three feet deep. That leaves just enough room for the hull of a canoe or kayak to glide smoothly down the waterway, especially when moving with the current. The guides of Canoeing the Grand—and its sister business, Tubing the Grand—are there to help visitors get their fill of all the fun this natural lazy river has to offer every day from April to November.
Before sending participants on their way, staff instructors provide guidance on how to operate the rental canoes and kayaks before bringing everyone to various put-in points. Once in the water, trips can last as little as 1.5 hours or as many as 11, allowing participants to power through a full journey or stop for a leisurely picnic. The moving flatwater also makes an ideal surface for a relaxing tubing trip. Families can plop into inflatable rings at the put-in points and simply go with the flow, never having to worry about paddling or even sitting up straight, since slouching is the first rule of relaxation.
