Rock Town River Outfitters Sunset Kayak Tour Maumelle Park

Looking to make the most of longer days, colorful skies and fresh air? Get your fill with Rock Town River Outfitters' guided sunset kayak tours, kicking off for the season on March 31.

The scenic tours have easily become one of Little Rock’s most popular outdoor activities, floating the Arkansas River from Rockwater Marina, and sometimes the Little Maumelle River from the River Mountain Park Boathouse.

The two-hour guided excursion does not require any experience, so all you need to bring is a water bottle, water-friendly shoes, sunscreen and bug spray. Before setting off on the river, you’ll be greeted by an experienced RTRO guide who will get you set up with everything you need including a kayak, a life jacket, paddles and a complimentary waterproof phone case. After the guide gives the rundown on proper water safety, you’ll be ready to explore.

Within minutes of starting your kayaking journey, you’ll leave the crowds behind and immerse yourself in the peaceful sounds of nature as you float. Your guide will also share facts and the history of the area as you ride along. As the sun sets, you'll find yourself paddling through a river of melting colors and lights.

Sunset tours are offered every Friday and Saturday. If kayaking isn’t your sport, RTRO offers other outdoor activities such as bike rentals, bike tours, stand-up paddleboard rentals and even a boat building class.
