Bono Creek
Shoreline Paddle


Kayak along the red sandstone shores of the Chequamegon Bay! This will be a memorable and relaxing  kayaking day trip. We’ll launch from the Bono Creek Boat Launch just south of Washburn and paddle north along the rugged sandstone shoreline enjoying the crevices and intricate features along the shore.   This trip offers great flexibilty for families with children or beginners.

Typically Tandem Kayaks are used as they tend to be more stable and a bit faster.  Solo kayaks are an option, however, you’ll need to discuss this with your guide ahead of time.


Our automatic booking accepts up to 6 on any given day. If you have a group size that exceeds availability, e-mail us to see if we can accommodate your group with an extra guide.

Where We Meet

For this trip we meet at launch at the Bono Creek boat launch at the address below.  There is free parking, but there are no facilities at the put in other than the parking lot.


50 Bono Creek Rd

Washburn, WI 54891


We assume everyone is a beginner.  We’ll teach, train and guide you throughout the trip — but also respect the experiences you come with.

Participants should be able to:


  1. Understand basic instructions

  2. Manage personal care and mobility

  3. Enter and exit the kayak. You should be able to maintain a balanced upright position while seated.

  4. Be comfortable in water and able to float in an upright position with a life jacket.

Shoreline Paddle

$50 per person

  • What do I wear?
    Typically we will wear wetsuits so shorts, tights, swimsuit or something similar is best. Bring a layer as it can sometimes be cooler on the water. Bring a dry bag or ziplock bag if you plan to bring a phone for photos.
  • Where do we go?
    On half day trips we will be paddling the "Mainland Sea Caves" area in the park. This four mile out and back shoreline paddle launches and lands at Meyers Beach.
  • Do you allow dogs?
    Sorry, due to limited space in the kayaks we are unable to allow dogs.
  • What about bad weather?
    If we are not able to go out due to weather or if you do not think it would be a good experience (due to rain, cold, etc.) you have the option to either reschedule or have a full refund. Lake Superior is notorious for it's quickly changing weather conditions, forecasts often change dramaticaly up until your trip departure. We will do everything we can to get you out on the water safely! We ask for flexibilty in situations where weather and other events are out of our control.
  • Is there an age or weight limit?
    We ask that paddlers are at least 100 lbs and/or 12 years old. In our experience it starts to become difficult to accommodate at about 270 lbs or above as it is hard to maintain stability and balance in the kayak but contact us for more information or body types.
