This is our half-day or (4) hour paddling trip at the Pictured Rocks and offers some beautiful views of the color stained cliffs, sea caves, and rock formations. Since we are not traveling as many miles on this trip as o thers, 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. In total distance you&rsqu o;ll paddle about 6 miles. We offer double kayaks.

Our shortest tour of caves, cliffs, small waterfalls, Miners Castle. If you are short on time but would like to get a few hours on Lake Superior this is a great trip for that type of experience. This tour has the best caves in the Pictured Rocks.  1 tour daily at 10:00 am. Great trip for smaller children over 6 years old with at least 2 adults.


The colorful stains on the Cambrian sandstone are caused by water filled with oxides of copper, manganese, iron, and other organic minerals running down the cliffs creating the beautiful Pictured Rocks.
