The adventure begins at Sand Harbor State Beach, a stunning stretch of sand overlooking crystal clear waters. Your package includes paddling lessons before departure.

The cost also includes a donation to the site, all permit fees, snacks, beverages, and lunch, as well as a kayak, gear, and the guided tour.

A 1.5 mile trip down the coast will bring you to the historic Thunderbird Lodge, where you can dock your ride, enjoy a light snack, and some well-deserved R&R along the beach.

After you've reveled in the warm sunshine and shimmering lake, you'll be able to wander the Whittel Estate that sits on the property.

You can view the old Lighthouse Room, as well as the lodge and kitchen, which is still in its original form from when the property was inhabited.

There is even a 600-foot underground tunnel that will transport you to the Boat House and the famous 1939 Yacht within.
