* Tour Itinerary;
Day 1: Algoma Central Railway (train No. 1), departs at 9:20 a.m. Saturday morning from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Pick up your pre-paid (by us) tickets at the station prior to boarding. Tickets are held in your name. Have the hotel pack a lunch for you if you have not already done so yourself.
The train will pass through the beautiful wilderness of Algoma and stop at Canyon Station (1:25 p.m.) for a short break. You will then board the return train (1:55 p.m.) for Montreal Falls, where we will meet you (at 2:50 p.m.) You will be given an introductory course in sea kayaking followed by a guided sea kayak tour on the Montreal River (4 km or 2.4 miles). Dry bags will be supplied for items and clothing that you bring along in the kayak. At 5:00 p.m. we return by van along the spectacular coast of Lake Superior for dinner (7:00 p.m.) at the Voyageurs' Lodge on Batchawana Bay.
Day 2: After a good nights rest and a hearty breakfast, we depart at 9:00 a.m. for the most favorable bay for sea kayaking, based on wind direction; e.g., Alona Bay, Pancake Bay or Batchawana Bay. We return to the lodge by 4:30 p.m.
Day 3: Based on conditions, we have several possible destinations. First choice is to paddle (15 km) the Goulais River near Searchmont. This wilderness valley is spectacular in the fall, with the current taking us downstream through the occasional mild rapid. Alternative destinations are Batchawana River, the Goulais River delta, Robertson Lake. We complete our trip by 4:30 p.m. and return to the train station in Sault Ste. Marie by 5:30 pm. to end our guided sea kayak adventure trip in northern Ontario.
