The Best things in life aren't things at all!

COVID RESPONSE.  Please note that we are currently closed in an effort to keep our staff, customers and our community safe. We will be open in the  coming weeks once we are sure we can operate safely. We miss you and can not wait to see you on the river!


Thinking of giving a canoe or kayak experience as a gift?

If you order your gift certificate and are in the a local area we will safely hand deliver your present already wrapped with flare to spare for whatever occasion you are celebrating!

"Fantastic day!! Awesome staff.....Beautiful experience, highly recommend!" "5 stars!"  "Local gem!" , "We do this every year and every year we forget just how much peace it brings our family!"  Come make your own memories on our beautiful heritage river!

If you are hoping to book a trip or looking for more information, feel free to do so via our email at or call us direct at 519-896-0290! Note phones will not be answered regularly until the Covid measures are removed, but we will get messages and we can not wait to see you when it is safe to do so! In the meantime we encourage you to count your blessings, be kind to yourself and your neighbour and know that we are all in this together!  Our beautiful Grand will be waiting!

Planning a group team building event? We can help with that! For almost 30 years we have been helping companies celebrate, reward and bond with their team, all the while showcasing the pastoral view that captured Homer Watson's heart. We can work with groups 2-400 without blinking! We have several catering options including having your own chef or picnic in our humble but quaint picnic area. For possible opening of river please watch both our website and Facebook Page.

We rent canoes, kayaks, tubes and river rafts from May 1 to November and have been proud to serve you since 1991!  We look forward to helping you with your 2020 adventure!!

We provide the boat, you make the story!


We provide the equipment and do the heavy lifting, you style your experience ...your way! Our winding river  provides a beautiful backdrop for you to do you!
