This is a 5-day kayak trip intended for those people interested in experiencing the awesome wilderness beauty of the 30,000 Islands of Ontario’s Georgian Bay, “the best wilderness fresh water kayaking area in the world” while learning more advanced kayak paddling skills and wilderness camping techniques.
Georgian Bay is a 100 mile long bay of Lake Huron and the eastern shore of the Bay is dotted with literately 30, 000 islands. It is spectacular, to say the least. In fact, people that we take there for the first time often ask “why do we keep this place such a secret?” In fact, the islands of northeastern Georgian Bay ( and this is exactly where we will be on these 5-day kayak trips) are recognized by the UN as a unique littoral ecosystem of international importance….a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.
This trip will be lead by our ORKCA certified instructors/guides. They will be teaching you SK1 level and beyond skills. You will have the opportunity to walk away from this trip with a substantially enhanced skills base in sea kayaks (and ORCKA Coastal Kayak Level 1 Skills certification if desired) and wilderness tripping
We will be paddling single person kayaks through the inner and outer island chains of the 30, 000 island group of northern Georgian Bay where we will camp on various islands along the way, taking out 5 days later on the Key River.
The trip will start with a 6:00am departure from Toronto for those opting for the round trip transportation option or you can meet us at Britt about 30-40 minutes north of Parry Sound that morning around 10:00 am.
The people are always interesting, the food is great and plentiful, the water is clear and warm and the wilderness area we will be in is very beautiful.
We are committed to making every trip an inspirational encounter with the natural wild beauty of Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands a safe and comfortable one for all.
We travel with only the best light weight modern equipment with such amenities as outback ovens to bake fresh breads and goodies, comfortable two person tents, and even a large bug tent for your comfort should it be needed.
There will be ample time each day to relax and explore the surrounding area, swim, fish or practice your paddling techniques that our ORKCA certified guides/instructors will be teaching you as we travel.
You will need only your personal items and a sleeping bag. Waterproof Dry Bags will be supplied for your use and a complete suggested packing list will be provided upon booking.
