Cowan Canoe & Kayak Livery provides shuttles for our rental customers and those who have their own boats but require a shuttle service. Our shuttles transport folks and boats to and/or from most Saugeen River access points on a flexible schedule. While advance bookings are recommended to guarantee availability of boats and shuttles, walk in customers are most welcome. Customers paddling downstream from Paisley on the Saugeen River, call us on their cell phone from the access point of their choice when they are ready to be picked up. This allows flexibility of take out time and location.

Customized shuttle arrangements can be negotiated in advance.


$35 to $50 (determined by distance) for the first two boats and passengers .
Add $5 per boat for 3 or more boats.
There is an additional $15/canoe or kayak charge for shuttling customer’s boats.
Transportation of large groups is arranged on a custom basis dependent upon your group’s requirements.
