Inland sea kayaking trips offer new sea kayak adventures and challenges to even those who are used to extreme kayaking.

Sea Kayaking Trips
"Lake Superior breathes. Even when the winds are still, the waters softly heave, an incomprehensible primal force....we can see, hear and feel Superior's power and, beneath a sea kayak, the lake comes alive." ~ Shawn Perich - The North Shore.

Kayaking Lake Superior offers an opportunity to explore the world's largest lake.

The Duluth Harbor welcomes ships from around the world that travel inland through the St Lawrence Seaway, a waterway that extends for 2,340 miles from the Atlantic Ocean to Duluth.

The lake's 32,000 square mile surface area stretches across the border between Canada and the U.S.

Recreational Kayaking: The Ultimate Guide

From the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources: "Two countries, three states, one province, and many First Nations surround Superior's magnificent shoreline."

"Over two years, Greg Breining set out to circle Lake Superior by kayak. Paddling more than one thousand miles, he camped on the lake’s islands and shorelines, visited its places of rare beauty and solitude, experienced its wildly varied moods, and explored remote historic sites and isolated communities. The result is Wild Shore, a tale of outdoor adventure, colorful characters, memorable stories, and personal discovery."
