Our boats stay with you during your tour.

Launch safely from our boat –
Paddle the most iconic stretch of Pictured Rocks.

Pictured Rocks Kayaking is the only kayak outfitter on the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore that offers an off-shore launch. This means you can relax and enjoy a boat cruise to and from the best parts of the park. Once at the launch point, hop in a kayak to paddle close enough to touch. Experience the geological layers of these multicolored, mammoth cliffs up close. Our boat follows you, making it more safe and convenient for varied ages and abilities. No experience necessary — our cruise boat will be nearby to assist or just offer a bathroom break.


Temps in the 60s? Light wind? End of September with colors starting – ALL WEEK? YES! Let’s paddle!


Amazing week to paddle! Keep watching for additional tours in October!
