For $23 per person, you can enjoy a nice relaxing paddle or a fun tubing trip down a stretch of the Wisconsin River in between Eagle River and St. Germain. Included in the $23 is transportation for the trip, paddles, life jackets, and the watercraft of your choice: river tube, sit-in or sit-on-top kayak, tandem kayak, or canoe. Our routes differ a bit, but they are all $23! So whatever you decide, you can rest easy knowing that it is all the same price.

For the routes, there are three main trips:

Tubing: From Otter Rapids Dam to the Hawks Nest base, this trip is about 2 miles long and takes around 2 hours. We can’t guarantee times because of wind and water conditions.

Kayaking/Canoeing: Our shorter trip goes from our base to Big Rock Landing, and it is about a 2.5 mile trip that lasts 1-1.5 hours. The medium trip goes to the Highway O Bridge Landing from our base, and it is a 5 mile trip that lasts around 2-3 hours. Our longest trip goes to the Highway J Landing on the Rainbow Flowage. It’s about 10 miles long, though, so it’s not for the faint of heart! It usually takes about 5-6 hours to complete.

We also offer fishing kayaks for $35 per person, and they are perfect for catching smallmouth bass, northern pike, and the occasional musky along the river.
