Guided Saugeen River Day Trips

New to paddling and wish to learn to paddle a moving river system in either a canoe or a kayak? Sign up for our Guided Saugeen River day trip and learn from one of our Paddle Canada certified instructors how to navigate and control your craft in moving waters.

Instruction begins after catching a ride with our river shuttle service up to putting in at the bridge at Country Road 17. From here your instructor will teach you on the water the various strokes and navigation techniques necessary to paddle safely in moving water systems. Aproximately 3 1/2 hours are spent on the river system flowing down to the takeout at Denny's Dam giving students the opportunity to hone their skills. Our guides are also there to make sure you enjoy the day of paddling and offer information about the Saugeen River system and other paddling opportunities.

It is recommended to bring a drink and a snack for enjoying on route down river as well as paddling appropriate clothing and footwear.

Boat rental of one canoe or tandem recreation kayak and shuttle service as well as paddles and safety equipment is included in this guided trip. Booking must be done in advance of the date offered and a minimum total of 4 persons signed up
