 A Women in Water Hosted Event Come Kayak/Canoe the Beautiful 
Rock River with us!

The National Scenic Rock River is a gentle river that's great for beginners and experienced paddlers! The Rock River winds through bluffs and pine stands and gives abundant opportunities to see wildlife, including -- you guessed it -- the mighty white pelican! This stretch of the Rock River is known to be one of the most beautiful. No matter what season, and no matter what experience level and age you are, we know you will enjoy what the Rock River has to offer! Float your cares away!


After a day well-spent on the river we will go to The Breakers Saloon & Eatery for dinner:  100 S 2nd Street, Oregon, IL 61061.


When: July 21st, 2018
Time:  Meet at 9:45 AM
Where:  Grand Detour ending point:  8201-8203 IL-2, Dixon, IL 61021


You are welcome to bring your own kayak or canoe, but if you don’t have one, no worries, you can rent them!  We will meet at the ending point and leave our cars there so there is no waiting when we are done. White Pelican will pick us up and shuttle us to the beginning point.


Rentals: Included with rentals are the vessel, life jackets, paddles, and shuttle from the end point destination to the White Pelican launch point.

  • Tandem kayak (2-person):  $50 each kayak
  • Canoe (weight limit 750 lbs, 3 persons):  $50 each canoe
  • Canoe seatback:  $5


·       on canoes there is a bench at the front and back of the vessel, but not in the middle

·       if you register for a tandem kayak or canoe, all communications about the event will go to only the name listed on the registration


If you bring your own vessel and need to use the shuttle service to get to the launch point, you can ride the shuttle for a fee of $10.00/person.


All fees must be paid at time of registration.
