CANOE & KAYAK LAKE SUPERIOR
Whether you choose to fish or canoe & kayak Lake Superior offers the best of both. Our Moss Island lodges are located directly on the Trans Canada Trail water route. The Trans Canada Trail is the longest recreational trail in the world, joining Canada from coast to coast to coast. Visit www.tctontario.ca for more information. You don't have to venture too far from the lodge to Canoe and kayak Lake Superior. With hundreds of islands to explore as well as a historic lighthouse - Lamb Island Lighthouse, you can create memories that will last a lifetime.
Canoe & Kayak Lake Superior just like the historic voyageurs before us, in our 25ft Voyageur Canoe. Our guests can experience paddling along the historic voyageur fur trade route. The voyageurs canoed around Lake Superior following the shoreline. Although there is a lot of writing of the challenges and hazards, there are records of fur canoes going through at extraordinary speeds. They would stay among the coastal islands to stay out of the wind and the voyageurs would most often paddle at night. The voyageurs would carry goods with huge birch bark canoes from Montreal to Fort William, passing through and possibly taking shelter in Moss Harbor where our Lake Superior lodges are located today.
Guests will have access to our canoes and kayaks as part of their stay with us. Or we can transport you and your own canoe or kayak, if you prefer, out to our lodges on Lake Superior. Canoe and kayak Lake Superior, explore the islands and shoreline, and be sure to visit our geocache locations hidden among the nearby islands and shores.
Moss Harbor is one of many Lake Superior scuba diving areas. A group of local scuba divers stayed with us at Moss Island, a few years back exploring the local shipwrecks in the area. One known shipwreck The Neebing - went down in 1937 and is located in 100 feet of water near the entrance to Moss Harbor (Credit: David D. Swayze, Lake Isabella MI). Diane Robnik, community resources officer for the Thunder Bay Museum had the pleasure of interviewing, Bill Lewinski who was on the Neebing when it ran into trouble. Mr. Lewinski can still remember the coldness of the water. (Credit: Lake Superior Magazine).
