Monthly Adventures to Historic Mississippi River Archipelago in Voyageur Canoes
Made possible by the deep, dedicated vision of the Lower Mississippi River Foundation
Community Canoe daytrips are outfitted by Quapaw Canoe Company, presented in partnership with the Lower Mississippi River Foundation. Jump on board the big canoe and reconnect with the Mississippi River! This trip is open to anyone to sign up, and an opportunity to experience the pristine beauty of the Mississippi River wilderness. No previous experience necessary. Everyone paddles together in our big canoes with guides. Must be willing to paddle — sometimes hard paddling necessary.
The destination for this trip is usually the Montezuma Islands
The Montezuma Islands are an archipelago of Mississippi River Islands with big beaches, swim holes, birds, turtles, and other wildlife, which aﬀord an incredible variety of giant sandbars, wetlands, gravel/fossil bars, deep willow forests, and miles of beaches to swim from or walk along—a little bit of everything!
West Montezuma Island was created by the 1837 sinking of the steamboat by the same name. It is found above Kangaroo Point, about halfway in between Friars Point and Helena, AR.
This trip is open to anyone! Come join us over the levee for some quality time with nature, friends, and community!
One Saturday each month. Gather at 1pm at the Quapaw Canoe Company headquarters in downtown Clarksdale at noon, and then follow us out to Montezuma Landing.
Adults – $50
Educators – $25
Children under 18: free, accompanied by parents or guardians
