DAY TRIPS A 17-mile float into downtown Memphis from Shelby National Forest. We’ll meet at the marina near downtown, and shuttle north to put into the Mississippi River. This full day trip will entail island hopping, swimming, lunch on a sandbar, and paddling into downtown Memphis from under the river bridge. SAILING CANOE TRIPS Dependent on winds and number of passengers, we’ll take out one of our big canoes fitted with a sail attachment... OVERNIGHT & MULTI-DAY TRIPS For the more adventurous, we’ll take you and your crew out into this wilderness with everything you need for an experience of a lifetime. We’ll camp on remote islands, cook meals over a fire, and enter into “river time.” SUNSET/HAPPY HOUR CRUISES A micro-adventure during the day’s greatest light show... Sunset on the Mississippi River!
