Missouri River Float with Big Muddy Adventures!

July 13-14th

Join Sparkle Adventures & BIg Muddy Adventures for an Epic overnight Float Trip on the MissourI!
Sparkle Adventures has signed up with Big Muddy Adventures for a private overnight float trip just for us Girls!

We floated with them last year on the Mississippi! It was a blast.  Let’s do it again – this time on the Missouri!

This is not an ordinary float trip – this is an EPIC float trip on the Missouri River!  We will start our voyage at Port Warren in North County floating to Pelican Island for lunch and then to Cora Island where we will spend the night spending the evening eating, exploring, swimming, and relaxing!

Big Muddy Adventures provides all our gear and meals for this trip- you provide your tent, sleeping bag and personal gear!

Spend a weekend recharging on the river with BMA! Join us for a two-day, one-night, full-service, guided adventure trip on one of the two largest rivers in North America. Along with getting to paddle on the Missouri River, you’ll get to camp on an island spending time relaxing, exploring, spotting wildlife, swimming and hanging around the campfire.

Our trip will start with a morning meetup at the BMA warehouse where our expert guides will assist in packing up your gear into our 29 foot voyageur canoes and then we’ll shuttle to the put-in on the Missouri River. The trip will include all meals, snacks, canoes, paddling gear and transportation. No paddling experience or special equipment is necessary, we’ve got you covered! Guests will need to provide their own tent and sleeping bag or rent one from BMA for an additional charge.

Where and when does this trip start and end? – This trip starts at 9 am on Saturday and ends around 12pm on Sunday. The meet-up location will be the BMA warehouse, located in Midtown St. Louis. Paddlers will be shuttled from the warehouse to the put-in location and from the takeout location back to the warehouse.

What is included in this trip? – We provide all necessary safety and paddling gear including life jackets, paddles, and dry bags. Our experienced river guides will be available to you the entire trip to assist you and answer all of your questions. No need to worry about transportation as our crew will take care of shuttling you to and from the river. We’ll provide three meals (lunch and dinner on Day One and breakfast on Day 2) and we are able to accommodate most dietary restrictions. We will supply a cooler for any BYO beverages.
