Looking for a little more than a wine or craft beer tour? Our Kayak/Paddle board and Adult Beverages Tours may be just what you are looking for. What do we mean by Adult Beverages? We can include wineries, breweries, hard cider, mead and distilleries after any paddle.
Join us for a two to two and a half hour paddle on the Crystal River that flows through Sleeping Bear National Park. The Crystal is just how it sounds, crystal clear water as pure as the land it flows through!
The paddle is perfect for all skill levels and is a unique way to get an Up North Experience on your trip to the Grand Traverse Region. The river meanders through a mix of hardwood and pine forests abundant with wildlife and sets a great vibe for the rest of the day.
After the paddle, at the take out, we literally walk right across the street to the M22 Tasting Room for our first stop on the Adult Beverages part of the tour. After that, where we go is up to you and we’ve got plenty of great ideas. There’s the Beer Forest and amazing tacos over at Hop Lot, the jaw dropping views and creative ciders at Suttons Bay Ciders, the famous Bloody Mary’s at Northern Latitudes Distillery and, of course, over 25 wineries to choose from set in amongst some of the prettiest country Michigan has to offer!
Kayak Tour Facts:
Tours cost $95 per person. Tour cost includes all transportation, a guide, bottled water and kayak rental.
For groups of four or less, please call or email for availability.
Tour times: We like to get on the river by 10/10:30am so that may mean a pickup around 9:30/9:45am depending on where you are staying. And if we get on the river by 10:30am, the tour usually wraps up around 4:30pm. But these times are flexible with private groups!
