This trip includes drop off service at the Portland Mills launch and pick up service at the Irwin Run launch.
This 9 mile trip is a beautiful and classic stretch of river often referred to as the “X, Y, Z rapids”. This section is a great place for your first “rapid” experience. The size of the rapids depends on river level, but is usually not too challenging, even for beginners. You will find tranquil & calm areas to relax as well. You’ll also pass a rope swing along the way! Your trip will begin at the Portland Mills launch, and end at the Irwin Run launch. You will need to select a departure time (10:00 am or 1:00 pm) and a pick up time (2:00 pm or 5:00 pm). Trips are built around 4 hour segments, because most guests enjoy stopping along the way.
