Split Rock Lighthouse Kayak Tour

View Split Rock Lighthouse from the water

Enjoy the stunning beauty of the sheer cliffs at Split Rock Lighthouse State Park in a comfortable and stable tandem (2 person) sea kayak on this 3-5 mile tour.

On this 3.5 hour kayak tour, you will:

  • Receive a thorough, land based introduction to sea kayaks, paddle strokes and safety skills
  • Enjoy an amazing view of Split Rock Lighthouse from the water
  • Learn about the fascinating natural history of the North Shore from your guide/naturalist (you may even see a bald eagle or perigrine falcon!)
  • Paddle north to Gold Rock for a possible glimpse of the 1905 shipwreck Madeira

We provide a wetsuit, spray skirt, PFD, paddle, safety equipment and instruction from PEO’s expert guides/naturalists.

No previous kayaking experience is necessary. Children ages 10 and older are welcome on the tour. All PEO kayak tours are customized small group experiences designed to meet the individual needs and interests of our participants.

Your participation in our public tours helps PEO provide outdoor education programming for low income children in Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin. We look forward to kayaking with you!

What Is Not Included?

We will provide a complete clothing and equipment list for your kayak tour when you complete the booking. You will need to bring water and snacks. Plan to wear a swimsuit that will go under a wetsuit and bring shoes that can get wet, a towel and change of clothes for after the tour.

Gratuities for your guide are not included but are greatly appreciated for a job well done. As a 501(c)3 not-for-profit, under IRS regulations, any additional contributions exceeding the actual value of goods or services received, including tips, are considered charitable contributions, and help support PEO’s programming for low income youth.
