Our Cayuga Moonlight Trip starts in Paris and ends at Brant Conservation Area... 3 hour paddle. Full Map

People are amazed at how well they see. Their sense of sound increases acutely.

There is something different about peering out and experiencing darkness.   

With night comes an amazing world of activity. There are fish splashing as they feed in the darkness. There are the ripple lines of swimming beaver and the explosion of their tails... the snort of alarmed deer... the dinosaur gawking of the Great Blue Herons.

A forest of  twinkling fireflies in June… endless chorus of crickets, frogs and toads… the symphony of the night. But the highlight is the howl of coyotes or hooting horned owls echoing down the corridors of the valley.


"Stargazer Rafting Is An Authentic Escape!"

(Customer TripAdvisor Review)

With Garth at the helm and a full moon, we couldn't have pick a better choice to enjoy our summer evening by rafting down mild rapids and meandering through the river in twilight and cozy darkness.

The constellation gazing, fresh spring water tasting (ahhhhhh), night sounds and the professional, knowledgeable and personable guide made this a thoroughly positive escape!... more


How Our Trips Work... we meet you where your trip ends... shuttle you upstream... equip you with everything... and down the river you go with your guide.

When you arrive at the end point... your vehicle is there... ready to head out... homeward bound or off to your accommodations.


We keep it simple… everything is looked after by us… and you enjoy the day!
