In partnership with the Alton Convention and Visitors Center, this is a fun Great Rivers day trip that will runs from Piasa Creek to Alton Marina. After meeting at Alton Marina at 10 am, we take a quick ride on the Big Muddy shuttle up to Piasa Creek. Once at the river our professional river guides outfit you with gear and assist you in boarding one of our extraordinary 29 foot voyageur canoes. Along our route, we will explore some of the braided pristine river islands of this amazing stretch of river, picking our favorite for a river picnic lunch. After lunch we will take in river bluff views as we head downstream and pull back into Alton Marina. You arrive with plenty of time to think about heading to Old Bakery Beer Co in historic downtown Alton for a post paddle refreshment! Or continue on your way to the Great Rivers Museum at the Lock, or to the Riverlands Audubon Center across the Clark bridge.
