August and September kayaking

Posted 8/22/2016

This is a great time to kayak and the weather is hanging in there for those of us who have procrastinated. SHOW ME THE WATER.   No algae to be concerned about and clear water.   It's been beautiful.   Don't miss a paddle in the harbor and around Gibraltar Island and it's limestone cliffs.  How about a paddle to the Benson Ford?  All good.  See you soon!!

WE ARE GETTING READY FOR SUMMER 2016

Posted 4/19/2016

The water is still 'hypothermia cold'  in April if you end up in the water. I am waiting for the docks to be put in the water.  Yesterday was in the 80's, today 40's.  We'll be glad when that stuff is gone.  I am looking for help for the summer.  It's an outdoorsy job with plenty of sun. I could use dock help and am looking for a couple more tour guides- it's unbelievable that you get paid for this!  You must have housing.  The BIG secret is... get here SOON.  If you wait too long- you can always work at McDonald's on the mainland.    blah blah blah   I know of a place to rent, but it could go at any time. No promises.

Cindy Orley  a blogger for http://www.akronohiomoms.com and family came to South Bass Island and Put in Bay and enjoyed some kayaking around the cliffs of Gibraltar Island in Lake Erie.  Even though it was a little windy that day, they found the harbor to be a great paddling spot.  For a little excitement- they headed out to check out the waves.  Not bad at all.  Thanks gang for visiting.

The weather is a different thing here......

Posted 8/2/2014

  Quite often the bad weather goes AROUND us. Weather predictions usually are wrong for the islands.  RADAR is the best and in real time.  If we have a beautiful day- grab it.  Don't w a i t until tomorrow.
