You will be paddling in 24-foot Voyageur canoes, following the river’s 3-4 mph current as it winds along the shoreline. The voyageur canoes hold 6-9 paddlers and 1 boat captain. They are fast and stable boats, designed specifically for trips on big or moving water. Paddling distance ranges from 4-8 miles, depending upon the route we do.
