See the City from the Mississippi
Experience the city like you never have before!
This is the full Minneapolis trip and our most popular trip. It's a super fun, 8+ mile, 2.5 - 3 hr., self-guided trip into Downtown Minneapolis. This section of the Mississippi is designated as a National River and Recreation Area. You'll start at River Park in Brooklyn Park and end at Boom Island Park in Minneapolis. Features of the trip:
Stop by the Islands of Peace
Go under Hwy 694
See the Great Blue Heron Rookery up close
Go under Camden, Lowry, Broadway and Plymouth Ave. plus two RR Bridges
See Historic Grain Belt Brewery
See the city skyline from the water
8 spectacular miles of normally hidden sights that are only accessible via the water!
We put you in your boat at rivers edge (no portage) and take you out at rivers edge.
Discounted rate is $59 per person when you wipe out your own kayak at the end, towels & disinfectant provided. (Add $15 if we clean.) Reservations required. We take reservations 7 days a week.
A guided option is available for $85 per person. 4 person minimum. Includes pictures.
All skill levels welcome! We include a short, on-shore paddling lesson for those who want one, and a trip map will be provided.
Please note that all river trips require that you arrange transportation for yourself at both ends. Most groups use two cars and leave one at the end and carpool to the start; or many use Uber, and some bike or have friends/family drive them. We meet you at the start with the kayaks and pick them up at the end.
