In this video I take you along while I kayak Pictured Rocks near Munising, Michigan. This is by far one of my absolute favorite kayaking experiences EVER! This video journals my experience throughout the day and is my best attempt to highlight the beauty of this national lake shore.
This video is split up into a few parts, and here’s why…
We used Uncle Ducky’s Paddling Michigan as our guide service. (http://www.paddlingmichigan.com/) They offer several options to paddle Pictured Rocks, and so I thought it would be appropriate to split the video up into segments that would reflect the type of trip you might experience should you book with them.
The trip we chose was the “paddle and hike”. This took us along roughly 14 miles of beautiful Lake Superior shoreline, and then ended with a 3 mile hike to a pickup point. In the middle, we stopped for lunch at Mosquito Beach.
Some trips they offer just go to the point where you eat lunch and then return home. In my opinion, you miss out on a lot if you just paddle halfway and then back.
If you ever want to paddle this, I highly suggest long sleeve everything as the stable flies are AWFUL! Whatever wasn’t covered, they attempted to bite.
