The stretch of river you will be kayaking is approximately 7.5 miles in length with an abundance of wildlife including ducks, geese, sand hill cranes, songbirds, deer and various other water animals. A majority of the trip is easy to moderate paddling, however, there are several area’s on your trip where you will encounter fallen trees, rocks and whitewater making it challenging for some people. This is a great trip for those who have some kayaking experience.
We have trips that go out daily and leave from Brainard's Bridge Park in Waupaca. Please show up at least 15-20 minutes prior to departure time. If you paddle at a leisurely pace, the trip will take roughly 3.5 hours to complete if you don’t stop.
What to Expect:
You will probably get wet while on the trip. Most is easy paddling; however, there are some rocks you’ll need to maneuver around possibly requiring you to hop out of the kayak if you get stuck. Some lifting may be involved in order to empty your kayak of water. Most of the river is less than 3 feet deep with only a couple spots of deep water. (these spots are very small and you will be over them in seconds.) Further instructions will be given by an instructor prior to your trip departure.
What to Bring on Your Trip
* Shoes to wear in the river. (flip flops are not recommended)
* Bug spray
* Towel, extra shoes/clothes (for the ride home)
• Adventure Outfitters will provide everything you need for your trip including: kayak, paddle (plus 1-2 extra paddles for the group), life jacket, and transportation to and from the river.
• NO food or beverage items are permitted on the river. (This is to keep our river clean from litter.) However, during the very hot days, you can bring water in your own personal water bottle. We don't want anyone dehydrated!
