About your host

Hi, I'm your host, Tom. I've been canoeing for a better part of my life (since I was a baby!). I'm really excited to show you a unique part of central Illinois on a canoe trip down a lazy river. I have been active outdoors all my life, doing pretty much any activity under the sun from rafting to mountain climbing. I'm first aid and CPR trained, abide by the Leave No Trace rules, wilderness…

What we’ll do

This experience is all about getting away from the busyness of life and relaxing as you paddle (or float) down a lazy midwest river. The experience includes accompanied transportation to and from the river, safety briefing, basic canoe instruction, snacks and liquids, as well as the necessary equipment for a trip down the river (canoe, paddles, life jackets).

What else you should know

We will be in "remote" areas at times, and emergency help will not be immediately available.

What I’ll provide

granola bars/energy food please inform me of any food allergies beforehand
canoe paddle life jacket first aid kit

Where we'll be

Taking into consideration river water levels and time constraints, we head to one of the local rivers not far from Champaign-Urbana. The choices include: Salt Fork, Sangamon, Middle Fork. Each of these serene rivers is ideal for a relaxing afternoon float trip. None of the rivers are deep and there is little chance of drowning. We will be in "remote" areas at times, and emergency help will not be immediately available.
