Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore offers some of the most spectacular coastline on the southern shore of Lake Superior. Spend five days exploring the cliffs, coves, and forests of this remote and wonderful area. Superior’s clear blue waters offer the Midwest’s finest paddling, a perfect environment for intermediate or experienced paddlers. At night you’ll enjoy hearty meals under the stars and relax around the campfire.
Day 1: We will meet in Munising around 3 p.m. where we'll meet and get acquainted with one another. We will then get on the water and refresh ourselves on some kayaking fundamentals. We will have dinner and spend the night at Munsing.
Day 2-4: On the second day, we will put in at Munsing after a good breakfast. Days 2, 3, and 4 will consist of eight to ten miles of paddling with stop-offs for lunch and a few hikes along the shore. We will travel Northeast until we reach our final destination on day 4; Grand Sable Dunes.
Day 5: After spending the night at Grand Sable Dunes, we will wake up to our last day. We'll enjoy our last great breakfast, and shuttle back to Munsing where we'll say our goodbyes and depart for home.

The caves were phenomenal. I had wanted to kayak in this locale for years. We were blessed with a very calm Lake Superior and could see the rocks so clearly. Awesome to see the geology of the place. - July 2015 Lois, Illinois
Excellent. Brian was super in terms of paddling knowledge and rescue skills. He demonstrated his knowledge and shared it ...so I learned to improve my paddling and alleviated some discomfort. I felt safe at all times. He worked to talk with each of us and made us feel included. Engaging and interesting. Sophie is a hard working ray of sunshine. Accommodating, helpful. Finding solutions. It was fun to see her demo rescue skills. She raises the spirits of a group with her positivity. - July 2015 Joan, Illinois
