paddling

taking to the water on kayak, SUP or ski is a great way to explore our blue space.

In the Great Lakes, you will find everything from calm lakes and meandering rivers to dramatic coastline and powerful waves. There is a patch of water to suit the beginner or experienced. If the tranquility of the lake and finding your own private island is not challenging enough, you can paddle the coastline to secret coves and beaches. Along the way, you can chat with our local dolphins.

To paddle in the Great Lakes you can bring your own or hire when you get here, just bring your sense of adventure
