Big Muddy Adventures offers a variety of full day and multi day adventures on the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers.

Monthly, we offer our very popular "Full Moon Float", a dinner trip and moonlight paddle. We also provide private groups with sunset and dinner trips any night of the month.  

The majority of our day and multi day trips are custom guided adventures for groups between 4 and 30 people.
