The Great Lakes are the largest group of freshwater lakes on Earth, containing 21% of the world's surface fresh water. There are 5 Great Lakes: Lake Huron, Lake Michigan, Lake Superior, Lake Ontario, and Lake Erie, with Lake Huron boasting the most coastline of the bunch.
The lakes form a chain linking the Atlantic Ocean with ports in Canada and the United States, reaching as far east as Duluth, Thunder Bay, and Chicago. Near a narrow, straight stretch that connects Lake Huron to Lake Michigan, you will find a beautiful and magical island called Mackinac.
Glacial ice melt at the end of the latest Ice Age caused the formation of our Great Lakes. It also started carving out the framework for future majestic rock formations like Devil's Kitchen and Arch Rock; these spectacular monuments were forged and refined by wind and wave over tens of thousands of years.
Paddling The Great Lakes and the Straits of Mackinac via kayak, canoe, or SUP is adventure not to be missed! With our guided tours, you can experience the majestic beauty of Pure Michigan firsthand while you explore boundless waters, and marvel at expanses of forested and rocky coastline.
