Kayak Tours

We offer guided kayak tours of the rugged North Shore of Lake Superior. Some of our favorite half day paddles include seeing the sea caves of Crystal Cove and Pallisade Head, Shovel Point, Black Beach and Butterwort Cliffs SNA and the Manitou Falls and Sea Caves are a full day trip. We prefer single kayaks but can accommodate a preference for a tandem. Group size is limited to two singles or one single and two in a tandem. The Big Lake can be fickle and we will cancel for weather at anytime for safety, including but not limited to waves over two feet, winds over 10 knots and storms . Other tours for inland waters can be substituted if desired when the Big Lake isn’t an option.
