Lake Huron’s greatest treasure is its North Channel, the home of hundreds of uninhabited small islands nestled in a passageway in the northern part of Lake Huron. Our North Channel Kayak Expedition brings boat lovers together in this untouched wild landscape. Lying north of Manitoulin Island, the North Channel stretches from Sault Ste. Marie to Killarney.
The water is deep, dark blue and tantalizingly clear. Steep granite ledges of white and pink can rise to within a few feet of the surface from depths of 100 feet. The vast coastlines of the North Channel mesmerize any adventurer lucky enough to experience this rugged landscape. Paddle through crystal clear waters to gorgeous secret islands and pristine beaches with views of the La Cloche Mountains to the north.
The allure of our North Channel kayaking adventure is that you get to experience the very best of these varied landscapes. We won’t be paddling all the time—although some consider paddling through still blue waters in breathtaking scenery to be heaven itself! We’ll also have time to relax by the campfire, swim, explore wacky rock formations, hike to mountain vistas, and find hidden beaches.
Join your fellow female adventurers in this sea kayaking haven!
