Canyons, Cliffs, & Waterfalls
It’s impossible to convey all of Lake Superior’s vast geological beauty. But this tour may, perhaps, capture the heart of it.
Kayak along Lake Superior’s Canyons and Cliffs! This will be a memorable and relaxing apostle island kayaking day trip! We’ll paddle between Saxon Harbor & Little Girl’s Point. In less than a mile from the harbor, we come to the mouth of the Montreal R. & kayak a short distance through the last portion of the river canyon up to a 40-foot final cascade of the 90 foot Superior Falls. We’ll have lunch on a gravel bar just below the falls, swim, take pictures & enjoy the beauty. Depending on the interests & energy of the group, we can explore the rugged shoreline alongside the 60 foot rock cliff & paddle alongside or under numerous smaller waterfalls depending on recent rainfall. For many, the short paddle to the Falls & back to the Harbor will be just far enough. This trip, therefore, 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.
