Your Gateway To Grand Rapids Area Lakes And Rivers

Unfortunately we are closed for the season. :(

However, if you check out our “Return to Paddling” clock, you will see that this is only temporary. In any case, feel free to go ahead and browse our website if you’d like and now that you’ve found us please bookmark this page and keep us in mind for this summer when we are very much looking forward to our third season of offering trips beginning on May 1st. Thanks! :)

Life’s just too short not to paddle. ~ Carpé Aqua ~

GR Paddling offers customized, safe, and full service kayak & canoe trips on twenty-one reaches (a total of over 140 miles to pick from) on our five local rivers and on five local lakes. Whether you are looking for a team building opportunity or social event, a beginner looking for a short safe escape or an experienced paddler looking for a full day outing (ie: our Paddle & Art option for larger groups up to 16 paddlers, one of our four Paddle & Dine trips, or one of our two (new for 2015) Paddle & Picnic trips), we have the trip for you that promises to help you enjoy the best of what West Michigan has to offer.

Since 2013, we have been located right here in Grand Rapids so we know the area and the very waters on which you will be paddling. We provide all of the essentials for you: boats, paddles, life preservers, transportation, snacks, mosquito repellant, instruction (if required) and binoculars (if desired). We also provide round trip & comfortable transportation, both pick-up and drop-off from your Grand Rapids area location to and from the river or lake! We pick you up. How cool is that? All you gotta do is paddle and enjoy the experience.
