Overview

The Pukaskwa Coastal sea kayak trip is a quintessential Canadian paddling route that remains as pristine today as it was when it inspired Naturally Superior Adventures to start in 1994. Extending 190 km through Pukaskwa National Park and the Superior Highlands Conservation Reserve, it's wild, remote and beautiful with spectacular geology, bright sand and cobble beaches, awesome waterfalls, sacred Native sites and isolated lighthouses.
The transition from crystal clear sweet water to towering cliffs, boreal and transitional forests is magical.Your trip begins with an afternoon of individual and group sea kayak safety coaching from Naturally Superior's base on Lake Superior near Wawa, Ontario. Later you'll enjoy a trip orientation following a home-cooked meal in the front room of their Rock Island Lodge.Dozens of rivers and streams feed into the Pukaskwa coast, including the Cascade, which drops directly into the lake and 100 ft Denison falls, now part of the newly created Superior Highlands Conservation Reserve. Along the way you'll visit ancient Pukaskwa Pit "villages," where it is thought that aboriginal peoples once held vision quests on cobblestone beaches. You'll encounter a number of short exposed headlands but no significant crossings.
