Paddle the shores of Lake Superior Provincial Park with James and Dympna our lead guides and instructors. Just north of Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, this park is home to rich Ojibwa history, rare wildlife, and a rugged wilderness shoreline. Sea kayak Lake Superior all day and each evening, after we set up our home away from home, we’ll enjoy a delicious meal together enjoying a world-class sunset on a wilderness beach.
What you will see during your Lake Superior kayak trip
Traveling South to North, from Agawa Bay to Old Woman’s Bay, the sights are spectacular. Bald eagles soar over 300-foot cliffs, while Peregrine Falcons hunt and nest among the cliffsides. Swim in turquoise water, discover waterfalls in the woods, and camp on phenomenal wilderness beaches, some sandy, some cobblestone, many with kilometers of no one but you. There are woodland hikes that leave from the beaches we camp on to explore on any windy day.
Nature and history collide with a grand finale: paddling past the 35 or so Ojibwa pictographs on a 98-foot sheer rock face. This is an incredibly sacred place where for generations Ojibwa people have been coming to record their dreams and spirits in Red Ochre.
Your Lake Superior kayak trip guides
James and Dympna, your guides for all of our high-end, fully outfitted trips, have extensive training and experience to keep your group safe and within their comfort zone. Equally important, they know the best campsites, the hidden waterfalls, and where to hike backcountry. James is an excellent wilderness chef with Dympna as his sous chef. James and Dympna are senior Paddle Canada instructors as well as BC Guides Alliance-trained kayak guides.
Sea Kayaking trips on Lake Superior are inherently at the mercy of the elements. Some days are just better spent having hot chocolate and freshly baked brownies on the beach! Wind days can also be spent hiking or honing paddling, rescue or rolling skills.
Why trip with us? We have the highest-trained guides and instructors in Ontario, the highest quality equipment, and the most delicious food.
A day-by-day plan to guide your journey ahead. Just keep in mind that it may change due to weather or group needs.
