Appleton Locks Paddle

A favorite among our activities – the original kayak tour of the Appleton Locks! On this tour, you will learn about the Fox River Valley and the industries which made Appleton the innovative life it is. Enter the Fox River as the local Native Americans did, then paddle through time navigating the Paper Industry ruins. Continue traveling through time as we discover the invention of electricity and the magical histories intertwined among the beautiful environment surrounding you. Taking the final bend, you will reach your destination – Sunset Point. This is truly an activity everyone needs to experience!



Our tours are safe and enjoyable for novice and advanced paddlers alike. Our sit-on-top kayaks are safe and sturdy for paddlers of all ages and experience levels.

We never guarantee a tour location in advance. Our priority is always safety, and our guides always pick the safest location for us to go paddling, based on wind strength/direction and group ability.

We do our best to get on the water every day. Sometimes the conditions do not allow for this (i.e. thunder, lightning, very windy). When this happens, we will try to reschedule you to another time or day. If you are unable to reschedule, you will receive a full refund.

If the conditions are good, but you are unable to make it, we request that you give us notice at least 24 hours in advance in order to receive a full refund. This ensures that we can take as many people paddling as possible.
