The eastern shoreline of Georgian Bay offers some of the most scenic sea kayaking in Eastern Canada, with hundreds of windswept islands lending a breathtaking backdrop to your kayaking experience. Rugged rock formations and inlets produce narrow channels of pristine blue water for sheltered paddling and spectacular camping. The landscape offers a wealth of natural treasures including fine smooth rocky outcrops, excellent blueberry picking and unforgettable sunsets.
Accommodation for the two nights is camping. Group size is limited to eight guests and a guide who prepares delicious meals, allowing you to put up your feet after an invigorating day out on Georgian Bay.
We rendezvous at 8:30am at Britt for breakfast. After lunch, we load our packs and paddle out into "the Bay". Along the way we learn how to sea kayak and paddle safely and have lots of time to swim in the clean freshwater. We paddle out past the Red Rock Lighthouse, sighting cormorants along the way. Our first destination of the trip is Franklin Island - or, weather permitting, the Mink Islands - where we make camp on a scenic point and learn about the night sky.
After a tasty breakfast, we spend the day paddling through the Mink Islands chain at a leisurely pace, with plenty of opportunities for swimming and exploring hidden coves. Making our way through beautiful rocky inlets and shoals, we relax and enjoy the fantastic scenery. If it's windy, we head out among the whitecaps to surf the big waves! Finally, at camp, we enjoy dinner while watching the sunset, before nodding off to the sound of the wind blowing across the Bay.
Relaxed and exhilarated by fresh air, beautiful surroundings and good company, we make our way through along the coast back to Snug Harbour, taking some time to explore the area on foot and pick juicy blueberries. We have one final look out into the waters of Georgian Bay while enjoying lunch and sharing stories before departure.
This trip also has departures to the Churchill Islands leaving from the town of Britt.
