Founded in 1994 we are located on Lake Superior (the world's largest freshwater inland sea) at the mouth of the mighty Michipicoten River, near Wawa, Ontario. Our focus is on silent sports: specifically sea kayaking, canoeing, Voyageur Canoe, and hiking. Our base includes Rock Island Lodge B&B, great certified sea kayak skills, instructor and guide training programs, sea kayak and canoe rentals, shuttles and more. Our goal is to be your Canadian Lake Superior Experts!

Overview

This paddling trip to mystic Michipicoten Island is designed for self-reliant, strong intermediate and advanced paddlers with wilderness sea kayak camping/tripping experience who wish to join similar paddlers. The trip includes a boat or bush plane shuttle to the Island and return paddle including a 17 km crossing to Wawa.
Your trip begins with an afternoon of group sea kayak stroke & safety practice at our base on Lake Superior near Wawa, ON. The next morning we'll fly from Wawa (Otter aircraft with some of our boats shuttled by water taxi) or take a licensed boat shuttle (based from Pukaskwa Park/Marathon) out to the Island. Over the next week we’ll circumnavigate most of the island, and when conditions are appropriate, make the 18 km crossing from Bonner Head to the mainland. Finally, eastwards along the Superior Highlands shore finishing at our paddling centre in Michipicoten Bay, a total of about 140 km. This is a peer-to-peer trip lead by a safety minded advanced paddler/instructor, certified with advanced first aid. Your guide knows the route and is very familiar with local heritage, environment, wind, waves, sea state, signalling and communications systems.
