Enjoy a ‘Grand’ Meal on the River!

Grand River Dinner Cruises is a unique dining experience operating along the picturesque Grand River.  Since its inception in 1978, Grand River Dinner Cruises has been offering lunch, sunset dinner and nature cruises in a tranquil country setting. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy beautiful river scenery, excellent service and delicious food.

Grand River Dinner Cruises is located in the County of Brant and cruises on a 20 km section of the Grand River between Caledonia and Brantford, Ontario. The Grand River flows 300 km through the heartland of Southern Ontario and was designated a Canadian Heritage River in 1994.

Grand River Dinner Cruises sails three boats all season: The Grand River Belle, Grand River Queen, and Grand River Princess. Each boat can comfortably hold a busload of passengers, with each table arranged along a window to give all passengers a great view. The promenade deck, that surrounds the dining area, allows everyone to stroll the deck or sit and enjoy the river scenery.

The cruises are offered May 22 to October 6, 2019 and reservations are required. Lunch and Sunset Dinner Cruises (3 hours long) are $55.00 a person and Nature Cruises (90 minute cruises without a meal) are $20 per adult and $10 for children 12 & under.
