Guided Sea Kayak Trips and Courses

KayakingPaddling the Tub - Instruction and a Tour

This is a wonderful introduction for new paddlers to the sport of sea kayaking. Instruction will include proper outfitting of your kayak as well as a whole host of paddling skills used in navigation and control of your vessel. This day of paddling is both a day of learning how to paddle in these longer sea worthy kayaks but also to enjoy some of the picturesque scenery to be found around the small village of Tobermory. This area is well known for it's nearby National Parklands, pristine waters and rugged natural islands. As a group we will learn our skills just outside of Little Tub Harbour in a sheltered area of the shoreline and then venture along the coastline. We will lunch at Big Tub Lighthouse and visit the shipwrecks of the City of Grand Rapids and the spectacular Sweepstakes wrecks sites and possibly even skirt out to one of the nearby islands to give paddlers some open water experience.
