This option allows you to float down the Maumee River and enjoy all the beautiful scenic views that come along with it!

We are currently offering a 3-mile trip from Grand Rapids to Van Tassel. We will provide transportation to our drop off location, and once you’re done kayaking you simply just call us and we’ll be on our way to pick you up!
