Originally known as ‘Rapids Des Peres’ (Rapids of the Fathers) you will launch onto a route used for hundreds of years to move this region forward. Before the dam/lock was built this was the last set of rapids on the Fox River before the calm flow to the Bay.
Paddling through you will pass St. Norbert College campus founded in 1898, traverse a single lock, and go with the flow into Ashwaubenon Creek! Experience one of the most-used locks on the Fox, kayak past peaceful parks, and see if you can spot the beaver dam on the Creek.
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.
