A favorite among our activities – the original kayak outing of the Appleton Locks! On this excursion, you will discover the Fox River Valley and the industries which made Appleton the innovative life it is today. Launch on the Fox River as the local Native Americans and paddling voyagers did hundreds of years ago. Continue paddling with the flow, navigating relics of the Paper Industry.

Traversing four historic locks, you will experience a controlled drop of more than forty feet from launch to exit. After navigating through the fourth lock, enjoy the beautiful scenery and free-flowing water of the Fox River until reaching your destination – Sunset Point.

This is truly an activity that should be experienced by everyone!


Route Map


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.
