Dragonfly Paddlers can help you “Get a Hug from Mother Nature”
Dragonfly is a kayak and canoe rental business located right in your backyard, offering relaxing river adventures on one of Outagamie County’s best kept secrets – the Wolf River.
“We provide an opportunity to venture out and explore the quiet, pristine and flat water river,” says Larry and Tracey Berken, who own and operate Dragonfly Paddlers. “This river offers a tranquil, lazy current that allows any paddler to effortlessly meander through miles and miles of trees and wild flowers while enjoying song birds and wildlife. You can really absorb the beautiful sights and sounds of this natural wonderland from a kayak, canoe or S.U.P. Sometimes, a dragonfly will land on your vessel to hitch a ride with you!” “This paddle experience in Shiocton is spiritually addicting and so relaxing,” said one of Dragonfly Paddlers’ return customers. Take your time and seek the seclusion of nature and breathe.
The serene adventures are designed with both first-time and experienced paddlers in mind and all trips go with the current. You don’t even have to paddle! Recreational kayaks, canoes and S.U.P.s are available, as well as fishing kayaks and canoes. A sunset pontoon boat ride with a captain is also available for those who are not as adventurous or those who would like to take a relaxing ride while getting some great nature photographs.
Our signature paddle is 2-3 hours long (5.5 miles) that ends at Dragonfly where your vehicle will be parked.
We highly recommend secured footwear. (ABSOLUTELY NO FLIP-FLOPS). We suggest you bring a bottle of water, Sun hat, cheap sunglasses, and bug spray. Simply come out and GET A Hug FROM MOTHER NATURE with help from Dragonfly Paddlers.
You don’t have to travel very far for a “way up-north” experience. Dragonfly’s trips have very little signs of civilization.
Dragonfly Paddlers is open daily from May through October. Monday through Friday group rates are available for families, churches, or any organization that appreciates the God-given, sparkling gem known as the Wolf River. Trips starts at 8am ( with reservations could start earlier ) up to 3 hours prior to official sunsets.
