Our Kayak Trips

  • 1 Hour Trip Plainwell to Otsego: The river level and flow rate can make this trip longer or shorter. This is perfect for beginners and people with young children. The terrain after leaving the docks in Plainwell is mostly grasslands and some trees. You will see many birds and turtles.
  • 2 Hour Trip Otsego to Trowbridge Dam: This newly renovated trek on the flowing Kalamazoo River will take approximately 2 hours. The trip is best for the experienced kayaker looking for a bit of action on the water at a few points along the way. Beginning in mid June we will launch you from Otsego at our new kayak launcher dock just off Jefferson Street downtown. On weekdays we are flexible with the departure times. We strive to leave Plainwell Kayak Company promptly at 11 AM & 1 PM for this trip on Saturday, Sunday, & Holidays!
  • 3 Hour Trip D Avenue to Plainwell: The river level and flow rate can make this trip longer or shorter, we expect your trip to take no longer than 4 hours; please let us know if you would like to rent the kayak for an extended trip! The trek is tree lined and very private most of the way. You will see many birds, turtles, and maybe even fish as you glide along the waterway. We strive to leave from Plainwell Kayak Company promptly at 10 AM & 12 PM for this trip on Saturday, Sunday, & Holidays! We are more flexible on weekdays.
  • Lake Kayaking: This trip allows you to enjoy a relaxing float without the current of the river. The hourly rate will start when you are on the lake; you decide the duration of the trip.
