Guided Kayak Tours:
Sea Kayaking has gained popularity in the Munising Area over the past several years. Whether you’re an experienced kayaker or new to the sport, the Munising area offers many paddling opportunities. Miles of colorful sandstone cliffs 50-200 feet high rise from Lake Superior’s rugged shoreline and long stretches of white sand beach invite kayakers to explore the beautiful Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.
There are a number of ‘put-in points’ along the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore including Sand Point, Twelvemile Beach, Hurricane River, Miner’s Beach, Grand Island Landing, Anna River, AuTrain River and the Munising boat launch.
Lake Superior can be as dangerous as it is beautiful. There is no shoreline along the rocks and some kayakers have found themselves in situations they had not anticipated. Because conditions on Lake Superior can change quickly, it’s highly recommended to go with a experienced guide.
