Thanks to all our wonderful volunteers, the Sylvan Island Portage route is back! We'll have volunteers on the island to help you out of your boats and safely get you up to the portage path. Anyone leaving from Ben Butterworth or Empire Park can take this route as an alternative to the lock-through. Please only bring what you or your group can carry. The new route has been added to the map below. CLICK HERE to sign up!
"Launch-By" Times are listed below. These are the latest times that you should leave to make it to Lake Potter by 2pm.
Empire Park - 8:30 A.M.
Ben Butterworth Parkway - 9:00 A.M.
Main Street, Davenport - Noon
Marquette Street, Davenport - Noon
Credit Island, Davenport - 1:00 P.M.
Group Photo/World Record Attempt - 2:00 P.M.
LOCK-THROUGHS: The first lock-through is at 10:00 a.m. The second and third will occur as soon as there are enough paddlers ready to enter the lock. Please be prompt. After the third lock-through, any late paddlers will be directed to the Sylvan Portage Route. If you leave after the times listed above, you are not guaranteed to make it to Lake Potter on time.
SHUTTLES: will take participants back to Empire Park and Ben Butterworth Pkwy. directly from Lake Potter.
Participants launching from Main Street and Marquette Street can paddle back to Credit Island and take shuttles back to their parking lots.
There will be secure areas at both Lake Potter and Credit Island to keep your boats safe until you return with your vehicle.
