Have Some Fun At The Lake

Posted on June 27th, 2017

Endless opportunities await the avid paddler in the Keweenaw Peninsula.  Featuring a 125 mile Keweenaw Water Trail with spectacular views of the rugged shoreline, the Keweenaw is a paddler’s paradise.

The Keweenaw Water Trail is a fantastic way to explore the Keweenaw and see a whole new view of this spectacular peninsula.  Take a few days, bring your gear and be prepared to experience some of the best paddling and camping you’ve ever done.  Note that we do not recommend trying this if you are not an experienced paddler as the mood of Lake Superior can change very quickly.  You should be prepared to handle whatever she throws at you.

If you aren’t an experience paddler but want to get out and explore there are several local businesses that are ready to help.  The Keweenaw Adventure Company offers guided sea kayak tours for any skill level.  If you’ve never kayaked before try out the Porter’s Island Paddle.  It’s a shorter tour around Copper Harbor’s shoreline and of course Porter’s Island.  If you’re more of an experienced kayaker but still prefer a guided tour try out the Bare Bluff Paddle for a full day of fun.

At Mount Bohemia’s All Inclusive Resort you can take advantage of guided sea kayak tours along Bare Bluff or take the kayaks or stand up paddle boards and explore on your own.

Maybe you’re not into the whole guided tour thing.  Check out Portage Paddle Sports in Hancock.  They offer rentals for most everything water related!  Offering Stand Up Paddle Boards, kayaks (both single & tandem), floating tubes and inflatable stand up paddle boards for you to use for as little as a half hour or all day if you want.  This is a great way to take in all the scenery of the Portage Canal from a place not many can get to.
