You Can Explore Ontario's Bruce Peninsula Entirely By Stand-Up Paddleboard This Summer
The Bruce Peninsula is one of Ontario's most surreal destinations, owing to its crystal clear waters, majestic shorelines and towering limestone formations. Most people who have visited the area before have had the pleasure of seeing it by land, but did you know you can also see it from the water?
Fathom Paddle Guiding is an excursions company in the heart of Lake Huron that offers guided tours of the Bruce Peninsula via stand-up paddleboard. Operating along the coastlines of Lions Head, Tobermory and the Fathom Five National Marine Park, the one-of-a-kind paddling experience is elevated by the unmatched scenery of the Georgian Bay landscape.
You can choose to start off your adventure with a basic tutorial of stand-up paddleboarding, led by an official Paddle Canada SUP instructor. By the end of the tutorial, you'll be able to properly maneuver the paddleboard so you're comfortable during the guided tour.
Half-day and full-day excursions are offered any of the following locations:
- Lions Head bluffs
- Huron sunset paddle
- Lyle island
- Dyer's Bay bluffs
- Fathom Five shipwreck tour
- Cameron Lake to the Grotto
They cost $135 and $175 per person respectively, with reduced rates for groups of 2 to 6.
The full-day excursion is highly recommended for those who are new to stand-up paddleboarding, since the package comes with the basic tutorial on the morning of your adventure.
For a truly unforgettable paddling experience, you can opt to take a sunset or overnight paddle. Both excursions are guided experiences and let you see the glory of the Georgian Bay in the still of the night.
There's also the Fathom Five shipwreck tour, which lets you go stand-up paddleboarding over old shipwrecks in in the marine park. For an even closer look, you can hop off the paddleboards and go snorkling in the shipwreck-filled lake.
