Join Sparkle Adventures & BIg Muddy Adventures for an Epic overnight Float Trip on the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers!
Sparkle Adventures has signed up with Big Muddy Adventures for a private overnight float trip just for us Girls!
We are booked for an epic overnight float trip with Big Muddy Adventures. We tried this last year in May and were cancelled for severe weather! Let’s try again in July – Float the Big Muddy Redo.
This is not an ordinary float trip – this is an EPIC float trip on the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers! We will start our voyage on the Missouri and float to the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers – we will spend the night on an island on the Mississippi where we can explore, swim, relax!
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 the two largest rivers in North America. Along with getting to paddle on both the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, you’ll get to camp on an island in the Confluence reach 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.
What do I need to bring? – Please make sure you bring the following items with you on your trip:
Weather appropriate clothing (We will have plenty of extra dry bags, so feel free to bring as many layers as you may need for comfort.)
River shoes/sandals with a backstrap, waterproof boots, or old sneakers that you don’t mind getting muddy or wet (NO FLIP FLOPS)
Reusable water bottle
