Big Muddy Adventures, a full-service canoe guiding company that runs day and multiday trips on the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, has added a number of new and creative programs to its menu this summer.

Canoe to the Cardinals (June 4 and July 16) includes a paddle from North Riverfront Park to downtown, then a walk up to see the redbirds play at Busch Stadium. Included is pickup at 4 Hands Brewery, gear and snacks — plus the option to buy a game ticket from Big Muddy if you need one.

The Full Moon Float (June 19, July 16 and August 18) takes you on a paddle by the light of the moon to Mosenthein Island, where you’ll enjoy a “campfire gourmet dinner” before relaxing and heading back.

The Paddle and Pedal Trip (June 25) starts downtown at Urban Shark for a bike ride to the Mississippi Greenway and North Riverfront Park, then a paddle on the Mississippi River.
