Our Story

River Town Adventures opened in 2014 along the Grand River in downtown Lansing as a full service livery and boat shuttle service with the goal of giving people an opportunity to explore the two beautiful rivers in the Capital City area.

River Town Adventures aims to provide you with a fun and adventurous time experiencing local waterways. Whether you are looking to add excitement to your active lifestyle, are in need of a relaxing time on the water, want to see nature and wildlife from a unique perspective, or simply want to experience something new in our great city, we have the adventure for you!!

Michigan's longest river is the Grand River. Flowing over 252 miles, it begins south of Jackson and moves north to Lansing where it makes a westward turn. Eventually emptying into Lake Michigan! River Town Adventures offers trips on the Grand from as far south as Dimondale and all the way west to Grand Ledge.

The winding Red Cedar river is 45 miles long. Its headwaters begin near Webberville. It flows through the communities of Williamston and Okemos and of course through the campus of Michigan State University (GO GREEN!) before emptying into the Grand at the confluence of in downtown Lansing. We offer trips on the Red Cedar from Okemos down stream to the confluence. Look for new river trip options coming in the summer of 2019! Explore the Portland State Game area on the Grand River and also experience some stretches of the Looking Glass River! Updates coming soon.

We feel we have a responsibility to care for our local waterways and parks. River Town Adventures is proud to participate and organize many river clean-ups every season. Our goal is to see the Red Cedar and Grand Rivers become cleaner every year. To see a list of organizations we have partnered with in these efforts check out OUR FRIENDS.
