Split Rock Lighthouse Kayak Adventure Highlights:

The Split Rock Lighthouse Kayak Adventure showcases the historic Split Rock Lighthouse from a truly unique perspective. You’ll experience a fun day trip on Lake Superior’s North Shore in our comfortable tour van and sit back while your guide sets a course for Silver Bay – approximately 45 miles north of Duluth. Once you arrive at Split Rock Lighthouse State Park, you’ll embark on a fun paddle below the historic lighthouse – perched high on the steep cliffs above you. You’ll learn about the nearby wreckage of the Madeira – a 436ft steel-hulled ship that ran into Gold Rock just north of Split Rock Lighthouse during the storm on November 4, 1905. You’ll explore the shoreline and the geology of the North Shore before landing on shore to enjoy a delicious picnic lunch. Bring your camera because the views are epic.
