Our ‘Paddler’s Choice’ excursion was a well organized paddle. Pretty large touring group, but broken up into manageable six boat parties once in the water. Our guide Eric with a ‘C’ was easygoing and funny throughout. Lots of tours require you to help move or...More

It was a beautiful trip to see the Painted Rocks. However, the kayak we rented had a worn out rudder that would not turn the boat to the left. My grandson and I worked twice as hard to keep the kayak going in the right...More

We enjoyed Paddler's Choice but we are experienced paddlers. Loved getting close to the cliffs and seeing the colors and formations. Some people were inexperienced and held the faster paddlers back and we didn't have time to get to Miner's Castle and the sea caves...More

Always wanted to paddle pictured rocks and they didn’t disappoint. Our guide “Bulldog” was knowledgeable, experienced and made the trip fun. He was personable and made the trip fun and interesting and fun. Big Thanks to paddle Michigan and “Bulldog” for a wonderful experience.

The views were spectacular, as expected, and you’ll never get as close in a tour boat. Our guide was super nice, but unfortunately for us, it was his first summer. He really didn’t offer any interesting facts or history. We got hit by a wake,...More

No break on the 1/2 day trip. There are facilities right at the Miner's Beach parking lot where you gear up at walk to your kayaks. I suspect there is a break for the full day during lunch.
