Punt Hires & Cruises

There's nothing more relaxing than some time on the water. Join us in a Classic Punt and cruise the Grand River in a custom built and locally fabricated watercraft for an authentic and memorable river experience. Explore the river and its charms from the dam at the Elora Mill Inn to Bissell Park and beyond. Customize your cruise with entertainment or a guide, add a Picnic Basket, or dine locally with our partners. Lets us know if you have a special request and we will do our best to accommodate you!

Check out our Classic Punt Rides below, or see a full list of everything we have to offer.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride in a Piloted Safari!

A knowledgeable guide will pilot your Classic Punt, tell you about Elora’s past, present & future, introduce you to its wildlife and show you fossils in its limestone cliffs. All you have to do is relax & enjoy the Ride in comfort. If your group can fill a boat, great! If you are fewer than eight, then you'll meet other delightful and adventurous people like yourself who are also curious about the River.
