Book A Trip

Welcome to our booking page! This is where you can book your personalized 2018 kayak/canoe experience.

  • We operate based on trust and we don’t want to jeopardize your credit information so we don’t require a credit card, a deposit or advance payment of any kind to book a trip. Payment is not required until after you’ve enjoyed your experience. All we ask is that you kindly give us as much notice as possible if for some reason, after you book a trip, your plans change and you need to either reschedule or cancel your booking. This way we can then open the date back up for other folks.

If you’d like to book a trip and hold a date for your experience go ahead and complete and submit this form with as much information as possible and someone from GR Paddling will confirm it with you (either by email or phone). Call us at: (616) 558-2609 if for some reason you don’t get a confirmation within 24 hours after submitting your trip request.

Before booking your trip, be sure to verify the availability of your date by checking our calendar to make sure that we have not already booked another trip on that date. If you’d like to paddle today, and our calendar shows availability, please call before booking your experience.
