Lost Creek Adventures and The School of Self-Reliance ‘The Experienced Paddler’

To meet the needs of our overnight trip alumni and other experienced sea kayakers we’ve created this 4 day guided overnight trip. We’ll travel as a small, efficient group. The goal; to see more of the islands.

Why would you want to join this trip? You’ve probably found that paddling with most groups is too slow for you. Not that you’re a racer, but your fitness and technique allows you to paddle 3 to 4 mph consistently without a lot of effort where beginners are getting tired and need more breaks.

Sample ‘Experienced Paddler’ Trip Itinerary

7:30 a.m. meeting time (we promise to have coffee!)

Once you meet and greet your group, we’ll organize gear, travel to our put-in, and head out for an 8-12 mile paddle to our first campsite.  Upon arrival you may go for a hike, set up camp, make a fire, maybe fish… while your guide prepares dinner. Typical dinner fare may include fresh Lake Superior Whitefish, rosemary potatoes, Dutch oven brownies, vegetarian stir-fry, or paella, or… (You choose your meal preferences during registration) Later, hug a mug of hot chocolate while you watch the stars from a cliff outcrop or curl up with a book in your tent.

Day 2-4 Mornings may begin with a morning dip in Lake Superior while Ospreys fish from overhead, time to write in your journal while sipping fresh coffee, or maybe you need a warm up so you take a run to the lighthouse to see the sunrise. (Or maybe you just sleep in while your guide fixes breakfast…) Day 2 may include a visit to sea caves, historical lighthouses, great beaches for lunch, and your final destination for the night.

Day 3 By day 3 of an Experienced Paddler trip it is likely that you’ve already visited several islands, and are camped out on an outer island. (weather permitting) You might get to paddle through THE most famous sea caves in the Apostles, or get to hike and explore islands where the view is of the north shore of Lake Superior! Now you’re getting into the groove of paddling, feeling strong, and perhaps are a bit sad to remember that tonight is your last night…

Day 4 starts with another great breakfast such as eggs, sausage, and orange juice. On this your final morning you may take some time to explore your island by foot. We’ll then pack up and and paddle towards our take-out, perhaps past shipwrecks and eagle nests. We try to arrive at our landing beach by 3pm at the latest, unless your group requests a different end time. Exchange contact information with your new friends!
