Summer Solstice City of Birds Kayak Tour
Boom Island Park, Sibley Street Northeast, Minneapolis, MN, USA
It may be called the City of Lakes, but lakes aren’t the end of our local treasures. On this special Summer Solstice edition of Paddle Bridge’s City of Birds kayak tour, we’ll meet you at Boom Island and shuttle up to Anoka County Riverfront Regional Park in our bus.
After a paddle skill introduction on land, we’ll wind downriver past islands and under bridges, toward the old Port of Minneapolis. We’ll pause to gawk at the squawking residents of two special islands that make up the great blue heron rookery – or as we like to call it, the City of Birds – also home to great egrets and cormorants and turtles.
You’ll enjoy the river’s current and one of the most distinctive skyline views from anywhere in town. Depending on conditions, we wrap up with either a visit to the Bassett Creek lagoon or a straight shot back into the Boom Island marina.More Information
