The tandem kayak was very uncomfortable (even for a young person with no back problems). Nicer kayaks with back support would be great, or if they warned prospective customers that a kayak may not be the most comfortable for the 2+ hour trip. Also, the trip was advertised as an eco-tour with commentary by a guide, however our guide did not provide much commentary on the local surroundings at all.

Let people know to meet in the park - instead of looking for a house number on Spencer Street. Advise people to bring water (let them know they can take it in a kayak) Let people know you head downstream and are taxied back.

You should probably be a bit more detailed in terms of safety - no asked if anyone in the group could swim -no one asked what level of experience the group had. It was a fun day and I recommend Heritage River to others.

I was happy paying $38 for this adventure, but I'm would not have felt it was worth $79. However, it was very well organized and was a good time for sure

The guide was super friendly and the route was not only beautiful but also perfect for both beginners and experienced canoers.

Give some commentary on the flora and fauna along the river banks as canoeists pass by.

I had a wonderful time and did not feel too bad I could not keep up with the others as I had my trusty friend with me and my team leader Mike stayed with us all the way giving me instructions on what may be up ahead and how to approach any interesting parts to the Grand.

From Our Editors

With a focus on instruction and eco-friendly outdoor exploration, Heritage River Canoe & Kayak Company readies adventurers to paddle the waters of the Grand and Nith Rivers aboard their canoes, kayaks, and rafts. The company is a member of the Ontario Recreational Canoeing and Kayaking Association and guides are certified in first aid and CPR, rendering them able to diffuse even the largest of pool noodle fights. Most have worked on or around the river for most of their lives and also take their passion to the land as resource interpreters and nature teachers when not leading trips. On the water, they orchestrate guided river tours at various times of day, night, and season, allowing participants to witness rare sights such as the local fishes’ Boxing Day hauls. Throughout each trip, they further the company’s partnership with Grand River Conservation Authority to help preserve the ecosystem of the river and its watershed.

The rental shop staffers, located in Brant Conservation Area, can supply solo customers with rental vessels or equip them for self-guided tours with any needed boats, paddles, and star charts. Those who prefer a hand in expeditions can experience structured paddling trips through introductory lessons and day camps or board rafts to fish for small-mouth bass and other river denizens. As they drift along the river, groups may encounter the area's many bold and beautiful residents, such as red-tailed hawks, ospreys, and bald eagles, all soaring above the rare Carolinian forests to their treetop condos.
