Trip Details
This is one of our most popular trips. We meet in Britt at 8:30 am and then on to a pre-trip clinic where we learn the basics of boat handling and rescue. Then it’s off to explore the islands around this area of Georgian Bay with all the back bays and secluded hideaways. Then next day we will explore many of the interesting islands and backwaters that make up this fascinating area. We will be close to both the open water and the protected islands. A great way to be introduced to tripping in kayaks, this trip accommodates those that are completely new to sea kayaking. This is a guided trip by Horizons Adventures.
