Venture out on Lake Michigan to explore beautiful stretches of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, weather permitting. Or we might choose to explore one of the pristine, inland wilderness lakes within the park. The pace will be relaxed and our focus is on having fun. Your guide and instructor, Michael Gray – author of “Hey, I’d eat this at home!” – will also provide a delicious picnic to restore and nourish.
We recommend you dress in synthetic clothing (no cotton) and wear water shoes. Bring a windbreaker, hat, sunscreen, secured sunglasses, drinking water and a dry change of clothing.
$150 per person (2 person minimum)
(Gear and lunch included. Pre-registration required.)
