in the world. Your Paddlers Choice tour will start at check in at 8:30am where you can grab a quick light breakfast. Then take a short bus ride to Miners beach where you will get geared up for the day and set out on the water. Midway through your day you will stop for lunch on the secluded Mosquito Beach nestled in the backcountry of Pictured Rocks the only way to get there is to hike or kayak.

Your Evening Dinner Cruise around Grand Island will include one of your dinners at the Duck Pond Eatery and Beer Garden starting around 4:45pm where you can sample local favorites like Cudighi or Whitefish Tacos, to name a few and drink one of the over 30 Michigan craft beers they have to offer (alcohol not included). At 6:15 you meet your Captain and climb about the 40 foot M/V Uncle Ducky, a custom built catamaran. Your Captain and crew will take you out and around Grand Island National Recreation Area and delight you with tales of the Native Americans that called this place home for centuries all the while spotting eagles and their nests perched atop the 200 foot sandstone cliffs and the beautiful colors they offer all along the north shore. Take pictures of the 2 lighthouses on the island and enjoy the remoteness and solitude of this island paradise.
No stay is complete without a paddle down the lazy Au Train River. Spend a day relaxing and paddling through the Hiawatha National Forest watching Eagles fish, ducks, songbirds, great blue herons, kingfishers, muskrats, and turtles. Eagles also often soar overhead and you can spot a variety of other wildlife as they come down to the river to drink. Enjoy this quiet relaxing trip without rapids or portages along the river.
Last on the list you get your choice of another dinner or lunch at the Duck Pond Eatery and Beer Garden. Your second meal included in this package can be just after your kayak trip or maybe before your canoe trip. The North Woods relaxed schedule is up to you. Stop in on a nice afternoon or evening and enjoy the cool air of the back beer garden sampling some fresh caught Lake Superior Whitefish Bites or the fresh smoked BBQ ribs, brisket or pulled pork. Maybe a stone baked pizza is what you’re after or one of our famous burgers, the menu is sure to delight. Don’t forget to try one or all of the over 30 Michigan Craft Beers.
