Paddle Bridge

Paddle Bridge is a collection of professional guides committed to providing safe and inclusive outdoor opportunities along the Mississippi River and around the Twin Cities area. We are dedicated to natural preservation, environmental education and sharing our passion for the outdoors with others.

We seek to be more than just a local outfitter, we are working to create an active and sustainable river community.

About Us




How we got here…

In the winter of 2017, the kayak touring outfitter 'Above the Falls Sports' closed it's doors.  However, the former guides of that company weren't ready for their time to be over.

After so many years of working on the Mississippi River and introducing thousands of guests to it's waters, the guides knew that the service we used to provide was essential to the life of this city.

So we got together and created a new vision for what an urban guiding service would look like.  From that vision came Paddle Bridge, a new service that not only brings people outside, but seeks out connections with the community around us and finds ways to give back to the cities that we call home.

Stay tuned for upcoming opportunities to get involved in clean up projects, fundraisers and more as we get into our sophomore season, we look forward to seeing you on the water soon.
