KayakingKayaking in the islands offers a great way to explore the less accessible areas, such as sea caves, cliffs, and coastlines. Weather can quickly change, however, and it is important to be aware of the current and future forecasts, as well as where to take shelter along a kayak journey. PMG Charters can haul and transport kayaks into the islands so you can get the most out of your kayaking experience.
Closed cockpit Sea Kayaks have become very popular among tourists but the conditions of Lake Superior can be hazardous at times. Kayakers need to be aware of the ever changing conditions of the lake and their limits. It is recommended that kayakers wear either a wet or dry suit because of the cool temperatures of the lake. The water temperature in June averages 40°F (5°C) and peaks in August at about 63°F (17°C). Daytime temperatures range from the 60’s in May and September and high 70’s in mid-summer. On an average day waves are one to four feet high and winds range between 5-20 knots but it is not uncommon to have winds of 30-40 knots and waves up to 12 feet.
