3 Day Kayak Trips Itinerary
This is a 3 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 basic 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?”
A day by day itinerary is impractical to list here since we will have many islands and multiple possible routes and campsites at our disposal. Suffice it to say that we will spend the 3 days exploring this most incredible archipelago being governed by the group’s desires, ability and weather conditions.
We will be paddling single person kayaks to a near shore island in the Franklin Island wilderness reserve in the 30, 000 island group of Georgian Bay where we will make camp for 2 nights. Our certified ORCKA guides and instructors will be teaching you the necessary skills for safe and confident kayak travel while we explore the many beautiful wilderness islands and inlets of the incredible area. You will have the opportunity to achieve an ORCKA Flatwater Sea Kayak certification on this trip at no extra charge. By the end of the 3 days you will feel very comfortable and confident in a sea kayak.
The trip is all inclusive, meaning that you need bring only your clothes, personal items and a sleeping bag (these can be rented for you at reasonable rates if desired) and a complete suggested packing list will be provided upon booking.
Round trip transportation is available from Toronto at $95 pp or you can meet us at Snug Harbour that morning around 9:30 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 a inspirational encounter with the natural wilderness 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.
The food is fresh and plentiful, in fact most people comment that they eat better on our trips than they do at home!
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.
The trip starts at 9:30 am at Snug Harbour just north of Parry Sound and ends at 3-4 pm on the last day.
