CLEARWATER -- This week in Fun Friday, we head out to Clearwater to go kayaking on the Mississippi River.

Clear Waters Outfitting in Clearwater has everything needed for people of all abilities to go out and enjoy the water in kayaks, canoes and paddle boards.

"We get a variety of people," says owner Dan Meer. "All different ability levels -- from children to retired folks -- they all have a great time on the river."

"We're very fortunate to be on a stretch of the Mississippi that is wild and scenic -- there's really no difficult paddling [conditions]."
