Self Guided Trips

Canoeist on Saugeen RiverSelf Guided Three Day Canoe or Kayak trip

Paddle the entire main Saugeen River or float from Walkerton to Southampton with this enjoyable three-day escape. Glide through amazing scenery at a relaxed pace. Most people choose to paddle a leisurely six hours a day ending at Denny’s Dam. Pack your own food and camping equipment and catch either the 8, 10 or 12 noon shuttle leaving Denny’s Dam, Our shuttle drivers will transport you and your equipment upstream to a pre-determined put in, based on the number of hours you would like to paddle. When you arrive back at your destination your car is waiting for you, simply lock up your boat and return paddles, pfd’s and throw bags to the nearest Thorncrest Outfitters location and notify them that you are back. Our shuttle drivers will pick up your boat shortly there after.

See the Shuttle schedule for a list of all eleven of the possible shuttle pick ups and drop offs.
