One of the best places to kayak in Michigan, have assurance with Keweenaw Adventure Company’s two and a half decades of experience, excellent safety record and highest percentage of 5-star Trip Advisor reviews among all regional competitors.
Located on the northernmost shoreline of the United State’s mainland in the tiny town of Copper Harbor, Michigan, their Keweenaw Peninsula sea kayaking explores the world’s largest freshwater lake and features some of Lake Superior’s most remarkable shorelines and geological gems. One billion years ago the area was the site of large magma oceans, the deposition of which became the world’s largest native copper deposit.
