Kayaking tour to view the caribou of the Slate Islands in Ontario


See Ontario’s greatest concentration of woodland caribou on this kayaking expedition to the Slate Islands. Beside guaranteed caribou sightings, this guided sea kayak trip features gourmet cuisine and a relaxed pace- perfect for an all inclusive, pampered, wilderness adventure.  You will access the 10 km crossing over to the Slate islands via boat shuttle. 

This circular archipelago of more than 20 islands was formed billions of years ago when a meteorite struck the Earth. Although the islands' gold and copper deposits are worth fortunes, the 8 main islands were designated as a Provincial Park in 1985. Today, they are a safe haven for boats during storms and acknowledged as stellar sea kayaking and woodland caribou watching destinations. Formed by a violent meteorite crash and now covered with lush boreal vegetation and a remnant herd of woodland caribou; the Slate Islands are a quintessential Lake Superior Paddling experience.

From your sea kayak, the ice and water washed Slate Islands shoreline presents a visual smorgasbord of geological features associated with meteor impact. For example, you’ll locate shatter-cones - cone like rock fractures created by the shock waves that reverberated following the asteroid’s million megaton TNT impact blast. You'll be paddling throughout the inter Slate islands waterways and around the perimeters of the major islands with a side trip to the Leadman Islands.  

Your trip begins on Sunday afternoon when we will meet at the Rainbow Falls Provincial Park near Rossport, Ontario. We'll take a few hours in the afternoon to cover some basic instruction and safety skills on the warm inland Whitesands Lake at the Provincial Park. That evening we'll have a gourmet dinner at the local Serendipity restaurant.  Monday morning, we'll travel to Terrace Bay to take a charter out to the Slate Islands, paddle and explore the islands for 5 days and on the following Friday we catch our boat shuttle back to Terrace Bay.
