When you are planning to kayak in the Upper Peninsula, you may first think of paddling Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. But did you know that Manistique, Michigan is only forty-five minutes south of the National Park and is located on the warm waters of Lake Michigan and the Manistique River. There are no crowds to battle, no lines to stand in. Just miles of peaceful shoreline and beautiful sunsets on inland lakes and rivers, or on Lake Michigan from various points.
It's easy to book online. Choose from our guided kayak tours, departing from two locations: Trader's Point in Manistique and The Dock Grill and Bar in Garden, Michigan. Or select from one of our solo tours for 2 or 4 hours to the destination of your choice.
Our most popular paddle is the 2-hour rental right here at Trader's Point in Manistique. Check-in at the Yak Shack, pick out your kayak (our most popular is 'Ship for Brains') and hit the river. You will be back for more!
