Trip Description

Why not spend a weekend this summer sea kayaking spectacular Lake Superior coastlines with rocky headlands, sandy hidden beaches and verdant forests framed by crystal clear waters. Explore wilderness kayaking and camping with like minded people and qualified Guides and wilderness chefs.

On our two-day Lake Superior sea kayak Weekend Getaway, we’ll enjoy landscapes carved from 10,000 years of wind and water, deep green boreal forests, rare Arctic disjunct plants and possibly a wide variety of wildlife including moose, fox, beaver and otters.

Your trip begins on Friday afternoon at our base on Superior at the mouth of the Michipicoten River. After boat fitting we’re on the water to cover basic rescue, efficient paddling and safety skills.

After a home-style meal at our lodge, we’ll convene a trip orientation and plan our route. Depending on conditions and group preferences head south into Lake Superior Park or west into the Lake Superior Conservation Reserve.

Friday night, we’ll camp at our base although if you prefer lodge, glamdome, and prosecutor tent accommodations are also available at a reduced rate. Following Saturday breakfast at the lodge, we’ll load our sea kayaks and head out for a great weekend of wilderness sea kayaking and camping on Lake Superior.

Trip distances range from 10 to 25 km where the group sets our pace. We tend to spend much of the day (6 hrs with hourly breaks) on the water traveling at a relaxed pace, leaving lots of time to exploring the coast and practice paddling skills. The lake is mostly calm in summer, but when it gets rough we enjoy the view from shore, so experience paddling in surf and swells is not necessary..

On trip meals are healthy, fresh and delicious. No freeze-dried food here! We can also accommodate most special diets.

You’ll be paddling crystal clear sweet waters with highly qualified guides, delicious meals and in the company of like minded paddlers.

What to Expect On Your Adventure
  • Your Guide(s) are Paddle Canada and Advanced Wilderness First Aid certified. They know the route, the best campsites, geology, history and love to share the stories. Your safety is their primary concern
  • You’ll have the option to be certified with the Paddle Canada level 1 sea kayak skills while on trip (a small additional fee to cover Paddle Canada registration and course manual).
  • You’ll experience back-country camping and learn to pack and carry your own gear (e.g. tent, sleeping bag, and personal items) and a share of group gear.
Is this Trip for You?

This trip is designed for new to intermediate paddlers. If you’re an experienced canoeist, skills are readily transferred to sea kayaking. While no previous sea kayaking experience is required, your enjoyment will be enhanced if you are in good physical condition and comfortable with backcountry camping.

Single and double sea kayaks are available. Often we’ll take a double and you may be asked to paddle one for a short period.
