"The beauty and serenity of the Grand is the biggest surprise. I can't believe I'm less than an hour from Toronto and in a setting like this!"
Our Turbo Tubing Adventure - Just $37 plus HST: We launch daily from 10:30am to 11am.
For hours, you’ll journey down 8km of the fabulous Grand River. Turbo Tubing is roomy and a bit more adventurous. It’s for reasonably fit individuals who want a slightly more active experience.
You can float with the current but, you can also criss-cross the river and explore the islands. Turbo Tubes are also known as Solo Rafting. They’re stable (not tippy), comfortable and suitable for fit beginners.
Turbo Tubes come with kayak paddles so they’re steerable and you can discover more of the river. Don’t rush – it’s a very pretty river so sit back, relax & enjoy. Sometimes guests paddle like they’re in a kayak race and end up 8km down the river in less than three hours. Take your time! Turbo Tubes have some room for snacks and beverages.
They're so comfortable that guests sometimes fall asleep.
Weight limit is 250 pounds.
FREE taxi back to our parking / launch site is included.
Just $69 & HST to experience the fun & exhilarating sport of kayaking! Ontario’s only Two River Exploration with route options for beginners and experienced kayakers.

Experienced? Paddle down the Grand for 2km then make a 40ft portage across a low spit of land where the Grand and the Speed Rivers join. Head up the Speed against an easy current for 2km, then run downriver to rejoin the Grand. (Click for MAP)
You’ll have the kayak for 4 hours giving you lots of time to explore, learn & play. We launch daily between 10:30 and 11:00 at Moyers Landing across from the Village of Blair and leave the river 8km downstream in Old Galt. FREE Taxi back to your car is included.

The Globe wrote, “Can’t afford to go to Europe, Old Galt is like a European village in Ontario.” It’s a beautiful limestone city.
Old Galt is "Hollywood North." Many films, TV shows and commercials are created here. The Handmaid’s Tale, American Gods, Designated Survivor, Flatliners, 12 Monkeys and many more.
It’s a lovely village-like atmosphere with charming cafes, lively pubs, restaurants, historic mansions and heritage sites all within a short walking distance. It’s also a major wedding destination.
Fun places along the river to eat, drink & enjoy
We're sure you'll enjoy your river experience and thank you for considering spending your day with us and in Old Galt.
