Advanced Outpost participants on the Mariner trip will paddle for 24 days on Lake Superior’s remote northern shoreline, gliding past steep cliffs, rocky outcrops, and hidden coves. You’ll travel between Sleeping Giant Provincial Park, Pukaskwa National Park, and Lake Superior Provincial Park. Superior’s north coast offers a much different experience than other Manito-wish sea kayaking trips, with wind, weather, and waves building your skills as a paddler, navigator, and group member.
