Additional Information

Kick off your weekend with some paddling adventure topped off by a visit to the Rockford City Market. Every other Friday we leave at 6:00 PM from Rocktown Adventures Rockford for a City Market Paddle. After outfitting and some instruction, we will launch around 6:30 and after a 1 hour paddle you are in the middle of a 4,000 person City Market complete with vendors, food, drink, and live music.

Details: 3 mile paddle on the Rock River to add to your City Market experience. Please arrive at the store by 5:45. Shuttle leaves at 6:00. We launch from the Martin Park lagoon.

Price: $30 and includes kayak, paddle, PFD, shuttle, guide, basic instruction, and a good time. $10 if you have your own vessel, and tandem kayaks are $40.

Register: Call 815-636-9066 or sign up oneline to reserve your spot! Seating is limited so don’t delay. As an added bonus, you can leave your car in our lot as you enjoy the City Market! (It’s like paying for parking in Chicago…….with a free paddle thrown in!) The first 10 that sign up will meet us at the store, then shuttle to Martin Park. Numbers 11 – 16 will meet us at Martin Park, and we will run a shuttle back after the paddle.

What to bring/wear: Shoes that can get wet. Try to avoid cotton as it retains water and does not insulate.
