Kayak Tours in Mackinac Island Area


Myself and 3 other adults in our 20's will be in the Mackinac Island area from June3rd-7th. We are looking for a guided tour around the area. Can anyone tell me what places are best and if there are any to stay away from? We would like something that is a couple hours in length and has a fun/active/adventerous tour guide.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

I don't know of any on Mackinac Island (I know nothing about the island) but a good option is Woods and Water Ecotours in Hessel which is only about 1/2 hour from St. Ignace. they can take you on a local tour of the Les Cheneaux Island or probably sould do a custom tour in the Straits area. www.woodswaterecotours.com

There is a kayak tour company in Indian River, 25 miles south of Mackinac. Their website is somewhat difficult to navigate, so probably calling them would be the best way to find out if they offer what you want.



I know not much about them, but they do have testimonials on their site

There is Great Turtle Kayak tours on the island. They are fairly new so I’m not familiar with them but it seems like they would be worth checking out if they are open when you are there.
