This 2.5 – 3 hour paddle will circumnavigate Belle Isle. We recommend this tour for intermediate/advanced paddlers. Enjoy panoramic views of the Detroit skyline, contrasted next to the nature of Belle Isle.
The Belle Isle Blue Heron Lagoon Tour is a beginner friendly tour on the east end of Belle Isle.
Highlights of the tour include the Fisher mansion, Nike Missle Control Site, stories of the Purple Gang and a view of the Motor City skyline.
Paddle from Belle Isle’s kayak beach to Sunset Point and watch the sun set over the Detroit skyline and the moon rise over Belle Isle.
This intermediate/advanced paddle is an 18 mile paddle around the Detroit River’s largest island.
This paddle leaves from the soft launch at Grosse Ile’s Water’s Edge Marina. The route will be dependent upon the group and water conditions.
Watch for 2018 Dates.
