Quapaw Canoe Company "No Child Left on Shore" Policy
"We are committed to getting you out on the river! Our mission is to provide access to the wilds & wonders of the Lower Mississippi River. Please enquire about student rates and low-income group rates."
Our standard scale is basic fee + meals + shuttle. **the above shuttle pricing applies only for trips out of Clarksdale and Helena. Higher fees apply with further travel distance.
Basic fee includes canoes, paddles, lifejackets and all necessary river gear, first aid kits & emergency gear. Meals are optional. We can do all the food prep, campfire cooking, provide cookware & eatware & cleanup, or you can bring your own. Shuttle covers transportation of canoes & gear plus our vehicles & drivers for drop-off and pickup. Tents & sleeping bag rental $30 + $5/day.>
Shuttle is calculated from the odometer, number of vehicles necessary, and driver's fee, round trip from Quapaw Canoe Company headquarters in downtown Clarksdale. Typically paddlers meet here, park their cars, and we do all the shuttling. As such, mileage is normally calculated round trip from Clarksdale. For excursions above Memphis we hire Memphis drivers and mileage is calculated round trip from Memphis. For excursions below Vicksburg we hire Port Gibson or Natchez drivers and mileage is calculated round trip from there. Here are some of the sections of river we frequent and their related numbers you can use to estimate shuttle fee. Final amount depends on exactly how many miles are driven and how many vehicles + drivers are needed to accommodate each group.
