Itinerary

The Niagara River follows a 36 mile course flowing first around Grand Island before cascading over the brink of Niagara Falls more than 15 miles downstream.  It is at the southern tip of Grand Island that your kayak tour begins.  Your guide will lead you along some of the very same canoe trails that were used by the early settlers of the Niagara frontier.  As you paddle through the tranquil river waters you will learn about the geology, history and ecology of the Niagara River.  You will get to visit the restored East River Marsh, an active heron rookery on Motor Island and you will even land on Strawberry Island where you may see the Bald Eagles that are in residence. Birdlife abounds and it is likely that you will encounter great blue herons, great egrets, black crowned night herons, ospreys and spotted sandpipers as well as a variety of gulls and terns so plan on bringing a camera. 

After meeting your guide you will be briefed on the day’s trip and the potential highlights.
You will be given a choice of either a single or tandem kayak that can be adjusted to fit you comfortably. All paddlers will be required to wear a lifejacket equipped with a whistle while out on the river.
