Float the Big Niangua

Float Trip

River Monkey Kayak Rental invites you to be our guest for a day on the Niangua River.

To start your adventure you will meet us at the future home of Riverbird Winery by Shawnee Bluff coming soon. From there we will take a short shuttle to the Whistle Bridge where you will launch from. Take your time to unwind and enjoy a day of floating, fishing, swimming, and fun! You will float right down to the winery and your vehicles at the take out.

Perfect for adventures on flat or slow-moving waters, the Access makes everyone feel like a pro by offering exceptional stability, comfort, and control. The shorter length and lighter weight make it a cinch to transport and increases maneuverability. Access includes a uniquely ergonomic seat with extra cushioning for natural body positioning. Anglers will appreciate the generous storage options, comfortable seat, and molded-in rod holders.
