Kayaking was a really cool way to explore the pictured rocks, and our guide was really cool. But we only stayed on the water for about two hours and would have like to see more. Also, all of their kayaks are tandem, so odd numbered groups will be sitting with strangers, despite the online promise of single kayaks available. I... More

Friends! I am hoping to save you some time. This post pertains to the this hot new Michigan Paddlers company. If I could rate this company a zero on Facebook I would. We absolutely loved the paddling! Our tour guide Miles was amazing. My problem is with management. We decided to stay at their camping facilities. Worst decision!!!! We arrived... More

We took the half day tour thinking it would be a little more adventurous (and actually take half of the day!) than the 2.5 hour but were disappointed at the pace and the amount of waiting that we had to do. The tour was WAY over-booked and the guide did not appear very knowledgeable of the area or operations. The... More

My son and I went rented a kayak from Uncle Ducky's in Munising, Mi. We were looking forward to our four hour "guided" tour around Pictured Rocks. To make a very long day and story short, our kayak was old, the rudder was broken and our guide left us behind and took the rest of the tour on the trip... More

Last weekend my family and I drove from Chicago to Munising for "Paddlers Choice" kayaking trip to Pictured Rocks organized by Paddling Michigan. There were about 30 people on the same trip with us that day. We were all led by one main guide, but when we started paddling, they broke us into 3 small groups. Each small group of... More

We decided to splurge and take a guided kayaking trip. It ended up being the highlight of our trip and a memory we'll never forget. The guide was extremely qualified. We felt very safe, even though none of us had ever kayaked before (no experience necessary!). The more popular trip is the Pictured Rocks tour, but we chose the Grand... More
