Downtown STL Paddling Microadventure
April 2, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Join us on our newest trip, the Downtown STL Microadventure! Don’t let the name fool you; there’s nothing small about this 45 minute adventure through the heart of Downtown St. Louis. We’ll meet on the riverfront levee and shuttle less than a mile to our put-in on Laclede’s Landing. We’ll push off near the historic Eads Bridge, the oldest bridge on the Mississippi and begin with a short paddle upstream (just like Lewis & Clark), learning about some notable historic landmarks and catching unparalleled views of some of St. Louis’s oldest riverfront buildings. We’ll then turn our canoe downstream, paddle under the Eads Bridge and enjoy a breathtaking view of the Gateway Arch and downtown’s skyscrapers. The trip will end just south of the Arch, where we’ll enjoy snacks and refreshments on the historic cobblestone levee!
Remember, no paddling experience or special equipment is necessary, we’ve got you covered! Our expert guides will provide you with everything you need for the adventure and help you board one of our extraordinary voyageur canoes.
