Big Muddy Adventures – STL Riverfront Adventure
Channel your inner Huck Finn on the STL Riverfront Adventure, a unique and unforgettable tour of St. Louis via the largest river in North America! We’ll meet at a convenient location downtown and shuttle you to our put in upstream on the Mighty Mississippi. Our expert guides will provide you with everything you need for the adventure and help you board one of our extraordinary voyageur canoes.
Remember, no paddling experience or special equipment is necessary, we’ve got you covered! Our trip will begin with a glimpse of the famous Chain of Rocks Bridge, part of the famed Route 66, and the bridge that enabled travelers to cross the Mississippi. Our route takes us into the only non-navigable reach of the river to a pristine island where we’ll enjoy lunch on a sandbar and have the chance to spot wildlife and take a dip in the muddy waters of the Mississippi River. We’ll continue on into the port of St. Louis where we’ll see our setting quickly transition from natural to built. We’ll pass beneath five awesome, contemporary and famous historic bridges, while learning about some notable historic landmarks, and catching incredible views of some of St. Louis’s oldest riverfront buildings. The trip ends with an unbeatable, from the river, view of the Gateway Arch and lands us on the historic landing of downtown St. Louis. This is a wonderful “only in St. Louis” experience you will never forget!
