LAKE ERIE SUNSETS. STANDING ROOM ONLY.
This tour is short on distance and long on chillaxation.
We'll take a short paddle down the Rocky River to Lake Erie, where we'll sit (or stand!) and enoy a classic Lake Erie sunset.
It's the perfect way to unwind at the end of a long weekday.
HOW FAR You'll PADDLE:
About 2 nautical miles.
WHAT YOU'LL SEE:
A spectacular river valley with impressive shale and limestone cliffs; riverfront homes (including the Elliot Ness home) and marinas. Wildlife sightings include: great blue heron; mallard ducks; wood ducks; cormorants; and graybacked seagulls; arctic terns; cliff swallows. And, of course, the Lake Erie sunset.
CONDITIONS TO EXPECT:
While the Rocky River is always calm, Lake Erie is a dynamic body of water, so conditions vary depending on the wind. We will not venture into the Lake if waves are over 2ft., but it may be choppy at times.
2 hours. Approximately 50 minutes of paddling; an hour of "chilling" 🙂
Stand-up paddleboard and equipment (paddle, life-jacket, whistle, and white safety light).
