Full Moon & Moonlight Floats

Come join us on our world famous Full Moon & Moonlight Floats! Spend a magical evening paddling one of our Great Rivers and enjoy fine dining in a unique and unparalleled natural setting.

At our early evening meet up we’ll outfit you with everything you’ll need for the evening and help you board one of our extraordinary 29 foot voyageur canoes. Remember, no paddling experience or special equipment is necessary, we’ve got you covered! After a short paddle with a Big Muddy Adventures guide we’ll arrive at a beautiful and uninhabited river island just in time for sunset and the “magic hour”. You’ll have time to explore the beach, search for arrowheads, spot eagles, or simply sit back and crack a cold one while a “campfire gourmet” dinner is prepared for you. After dining around the campfire, sharing stories with your new river friends, and stargazing, we’ll paddle to our take out under the light of the full moon. This Big Muddy Adventures signature trip is truly a night to remember!
