Half Day Tours

On this half-day tour, we will paddle from Tofte Park down to Temperance River State Park to view the falls that flow into the gorge and search for agates along Lake Superior beaches. You’ll learn how the river was formed and what treasures abound here. When heading out on the “big lake”, we will travel in 2-person kayaks and we will be wearing wetsuits.
