About

Explore Duluth's North Shore like the Voyageurs! Our voyageur North Canoe is designed just like the boats the fur traders would have used to explore and trade goods in the North Woods. The canoe easily holds 10 adults and requires no previous paddling experience. 

The private charter makes paddling a breeze! The canoe requires at least 4 adults to paddle and can take up to 9 adults and a small kid or two. The private tour can be taken anywhere in the Duluth area and we typically paddle for 2 hours. Longer tours can be arranged.

Our 2 hour tours will launch from various locations around Duluth and explore the are and conditions allow we will paddle the open waters of Lake Superior. There are 9 "seats" available per tour. The canoe needs at least 4 able body voyageurs to paddle safely. There are 9 paddling seats available and additional room for non-paddling children. The north canoe is also a great party or team building adventure.

THE CANOE

We paddle a 26′ Voyageur "North Canoe," built by Clipper Canoes of Abbotsford Canada. The Voyageur's design is  tried and true and is a replica of what would have been used by the fur traders who explored the Lake Superior and the northern wilderness in the 18th and 19th centuries. The Voyageur can be paddled in many conditions from open Lake Superior Waters to extended wilderness expeditions on rivers of inland lakes. With great stability and speed the Voyageur is a great option for any paddling party. As unlikely as it sounds, the Voyageur has even been used to pull water skiers!

ABOUT

Canoeing is a safe, fun way for novice to expert paddlers to explore the many waterways of the Duluth area. It's also a great family activity as the youngster can enjoy the paddle while duffing. Duffing, or riding in the boat's center compartment, is a great beginning place for all young paddlers. Though duffers may not be helping to propel the boat, they are learning about the feel of a canoe.

Canoeing is a great way for families with very young kids to get out for a paddle. With everyone in the same boat parents can keep kiddos happy and entertained. If anyone needs to stretch their legs, there are lots of islands to get out and explore! 

We offer two tour durations: 2-hours and 4-hours (by special request). For groups with 4 or more able paddlers, check out our 10 person voyageur canoe! It's a great way for groups with varying levels of experience to be all together!
