Canoe Trip on the Mississippi

View the Midwest in a whole new light with a guided canoe trip down the Mississippi River. 

Once a month until October, Big Muddy Adventures will offer a day trip so you can see our beautiful river up close and personal along with majestic bluffs!

You will meet them outside of Alton Marina where a shuttle bus will take you to Piasa Creek access. From there they will give you the proper clothes to wear for the 4-5 hour adventure. There will be stops along the way so you can snack and truly take in the beauty of our town!

The fee is $60 per person and if you would like lunch it will be another $15.

The dates for this year are May 6, June 3, July 1, August 5, September 2, and October 7.

After a long day of adventure relax treat yourself to luxury with a stay at The BEALL MANSION An Elegant Bed & Breakfast Inn . . . conveniently located 1 mile from the marina.
