Big Muddy Adventures was established in 2002. We are the first professional outfitter/guiding company providing access to the wild wonders of the Middle Mississippi and Lower Missouri Rivers. We are located in the great river city of Saint Louis.

BMA has guided and outfitted thousands of people from all over the world, and we are recognized as a world class adventure company.  With a full fleet of paddling vessels, including canoes, kayaks and our signature Quapaw Canoe Company designed and hand built voyageur canoes, BMA takes great pride in our focus on safety and personal attention.
