Upper Peninsula Kayaking


For nearly two and a half decades, Keweenaw Adventure Company has been the hub for human-powered recreation and our guided Lake Superior Sea Kayak Tours are second to none. Known for our “legendary customer service,” our customer testimonials have continually ranked us with the highest percentage of 5-star Trip Advisor reviews among all our regional competitors. Here’s why you should join us for a kayak tour!

1. We’ll tell you the story of the Keweenaw Peninsula

Kayaking in Michigan: History of Keweenaw

Our highly trained, professional and fun-loving staff deliver a high-quality experience! Be entertained by storytelling that interprets our local land, history and culture. Catch the splash of an otter, the flight of an eagle and laugh of the loon. Spot a sunken ship wreck and a cruising freight sailing past. Pit stop on a red stone beach for rock skipping, a sack lunch (included in ½ and full day tours), relaxation or the setting of the sun (sunset tours available Tues, Fri & Sat).

2. We care about your safety

Kayaking Safety on Keweenaw Peninsula

We have an excellent safety record and safety on the big lake is always our top priority. Each tour includes a half-hour of basic instruction that provides paddlers with skills and safety awareness. Additionally, we offer you the choice between state-of-the-art single and tandem (two-people) kayaks and equip you with all gear and equipment, including the use of a wetsuit, which is an essential piece of safety gear that not all outfitters require.
