Lion's Head Sea Kayak Adventure
Lions Head is the perfect backdrop for this one day guided trip of Isthmus Bay and Lions Head. Given it's name for the resemblance of a lions profile in the rock, it is a favorite spot of paddlers, hikers and climbers for it's sheer cliffs and small town charm.
The morning will be spent within the shelter of the harbour break wall, as our instructor teaches you basic kayak skills and safety. After our morning lessons, we set out for a shore lunch at McKay's Harbor at the tip of the Lion's Head Provincial Nature Reserve. We will paddle the "sweet sea" waters of Georgian Bay below the sheer rock faces of the Niagara Escarpment, to discover its rugged beauty and possibly see some rock climbers in action tackling the huge escarpment walls. We finish the experience back at the public beach where we started, with greater knowledge and wonderful paddling memories.
