Straits of Mackinac Adventure Weekend

THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT!  If you have any questions reach out to

There are several paddling options available in the area of the Straits.  We’ll make the best use of wind, waves and weather.  We may be crossing the Straits under the Mackinac Bridge, paddling out to Mackinac Island for a circumnavigation, surfing, or exploring Wilderness Point and the nearby Dark Sky Park.

The Straits area is a perfect venue for those looking to pursue the ACA Level 3 Skills Award or the British canoeing Sea Kayak Award (formerlyBCU 3 Star). We will be training towards both awards and if we have conditions we can incorporate an Assessment during the weekend. Additional BC fees apply for a successful assessment.

Camping is available at nearby Wilderness State Park. Multiple hotel options exist on both sides of the bridge.  Launch sites will be determined based on wind, waves and weather forecasts.
