Dinner and a Canoe
We've worked with a handful of local businesses to put together a customizable package that is truly unmatched in the industry.
While each trip is unique and tailored to individual requests, the core platform provides you with an opportunity to paddle the beautiful Wisconsin River to a prepared table setting for 2 to 20 guests - in short, a candlelit dinner at sunset on your own private island. Seriously, that special someone cannot resist this. (In fact, our first dinner was a succesful marriage proposal)
You will arrive to a classy dinner table and chairs surrounded by a ring of tiki torches, your favorite wine, and enough wood for your campfire to last through the night. A completely local, in-season dinner is catered by Enos Farms, made in their offsite kitchen and immediately delivered by canoe. This dinner also makes for a perfect end (or a great start) to an outdoor play at the American Players Theater.
The paddling distance can be set to as little as 2 miles so if you'd prefer more sandbar time than paddling time, we can do that. You can choose to finish your canoe trip by moonlight or spend the night camped out on the island. Your vehicle will be waiting for you ten minutes downstream.
Because of the large amount of leg work that goes into this dinner (requring no less than three staff visits to the dinner site) and the quality of ingredients, our base rate for this service is $500 for two. Additional guests may join for $150 per plate. This may increase to service extraordinary requests.
We can accomodate you on most weekdays throughout the summer, however we do not offer this service on weekends from Memorial Day to Labor Day due to the high number of river users.
