Meet and leave from shul.

The Cannon River is a beautiful river for both skilled paddlers and first timers!  Located a little less than an hour from Beth Jacob, we will spend the day enjoying a wonderful paddle on one of our area treasures.

Canoes are available for rent or you may bring your own canoe or kayak.

There is a potential for tubing as well.


  • Bring lunch and water.
  • This is a trip for children and adults. Young children must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Need a paddling partner?  We’ll find one for you.
  • Trip Length options:

Canoeing and kayaking:  12 miles or 5 miles.

The 12 mile option puts in at mile 25 at Cannon Falls.  The 5 mile option puts in at mile 18.  Both take out at mile 13 in Welch.

  • Boat Rental & Shuttles
  • We will be working with Welch Mill Canoeing and Tubing. See for rental costs.  Shuttle cost included in rental.  For those with own boats, shuttle cost is $15.00/boat.  If possible, we will organize our own shuttle for this group.

Tubing:  there are also two options, putting in a few miles above Welch and taking out at Welch

NOTE: It is better to reserve and then cancel rather than get caught short.   We can always decrease the number of boats/tubes more easily than add!

Be sure to note which option you prefer: renting a boat, using your own, or going tubing instead of canoe/kayaking.
