FAQs for 3 Day Kayak Adventure

 On our kayak trips, the guide finds  the best campsite for the group. Each campsite has tent sites, a firepit, and a “thunderbox” (ie: toilet). We provide the tents, stoves, tarps, and any other equipment required to make a backcountry campsite into a backcountry palace. Water is taken from the lake and purified for drinking. All backcountry travel follows leave-no-trace principles as directed by the guide. 

None! This sea kayaking trip is for people at any level of experience. Our pace is very relaxed, as the objective is to have fun, slow down and leave plenty of time to explore the beauty of Georgian Bay. You should be able to be active for up to four hours at a time.

We are happy to accommodate any dietary requirement. For special diets such as vegan, gluten free or lactose free we do charge a small fee in order to properly accommodate your needs.  Please be sure to describe your requirement in detail when making your booking.
