Georgian Bay Getaway
The 3-day Georgian Bay “Getaway” is an ideal introduction to kayak touring. The trip is designed to provide you with basic paddling, safety, rescue, navigation, touring, and kayak-camping techniques, while enjoying a relaxed wilderness holiday in a beautiful setting. The combination of formal instruction with ongoing coaching, while gaining real experience on a multi-day expedition, will help you become a confident and safe sea kayaker.
After a kayak clinic at Killbear Provincial Park, we'll head out into the 30,000 Islands - a kayaker’s paradise. We'll set up camp each evening on a rugged out-island and enjoy a glass of wine, an excellent dinner, and the company of new friends. After three days of exploring the maze of islands and channels, we'll arrive at our destination of Snug Harbour.
No previous experience is required to enjoy the Georgian Bay “Getaway”. More accomplished paddlers will find it a great way to introduce a friend to sea kayaking.
"We had a fabulous time and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a Black Feather trip to anyone. We look forward to doing another one in the near future." Jackie, Ontario, Canada
