Mississippi River Paddle Share is a new and exciting recreational and transportation opportunity for people who have some kayaking experience, don’t own a boat, and want a safe and enjoyable river experience. This is a first of its kind in a national park and in the country.

Mississippi River Paddle Share provides you with everything you need for an enjoyable experience on the river. Simply reserve your kayak online, unlock your boat and equipment from the lockers, launch, and enjoy! There are plenty of things to see and do on the river — paddle past a heron rookery for some fabulous birding, stop for a bite to eat at one of the city's riverside restaurants, and enjoy spectacular skyline views from the Mighty Mississippi!
