We also have the flexibility to accommodate paddlers in the morning, noon, and afternoon. Tours do run every day from Memorial weekend through the end of September. Check in is always 30 minuets prior to your scheduled trip time so 8:30am, 11:30am, 2:30pm, and 5:30pm meet times at our offsite parking area (E10846 County Road H58, Munising, MI, 49862)

The 6PM Sunset tour is the most sought after time to be in Pictured Rocks, this is the most picturesque tour in Pictured Rocks due to the Cliffs glowing at this time in the evening! 

Since we are not traveling as many miles on this trip as others, we like to paddle at a slower pace. This is usually agreeable with most folks that choose this trip over our longer paddling excursions. The trip covers the shoreline from Miners Beach to Shipwreck Point. Bridal Veil Falls, Kissing Rock, and the Painted Coves highlight this tour.

In total distance you’ll paddle about 5 miles seeing 7 named points along Pictured Rocks Cliff line and 2 waterfalls. We only use double two seat kayaks on all tours.  Please bring your own water or drinks.  All Skill Levels Welcome on this tour! Suitable ages for this tour are 6yo and up.
