Fall Color Paddling Trips

Why not see the Fall Colors from a Paddle Board, Canoe or Kayak and enjoy a relaxing paddle from a different view: the water trails.

Sturgeon River, Indian River, Burt Lake, Mullett Lake or Crooked Lake & Crooked River

The Autumn colors usually are in full color change in Indian River around the 7th of October. That means that it could be a week earlier or a week later.  Last year, in 2012, the colors were beautiful! Enjoy the photo gallery from with pictures taken by one of our customers. Photo credit to Joan Zeller Bonin! Thank you for taking a great fall color river trip on the Sturgeon River. What a great photo op and adventure with us at Arts and Adventure Paddlesports at BrassWind Landing.  Enjoy the fall colors twice; head to Northern Michigan and then paddle the Muskegon in West Michigan the next weekend.

Winter River Trips

We are available to help your arrange winter kayaking trips in Northern Michigan on both the Sturgeon River and the Indian River – Inland Waterway.  We will rent our kayaks out during the winter months, ice permitting, to serious and experiences  paddle-sports kayaking enthusiasts with the proper dry gear or wetsuits or combination of both. Your winter gear must include neoprene booties or boots.  What we have personally experiences when kayaking in the winter in Northern Michigan is that if you feet get cold you get even more cold and much faster!

Please call Sheree on her Google Voice number which rings to her cell at 231-268-0103 if you are interested in making an appointment for winter paddling or email us for more information. We are often at BrassWind Landing in the offices located on the West side of our building towards Burt Lake. We also try to be open on Saturdays from 10am to 5pm for your browsing pleasure however as many of you know most of the stores in Indian River close for the winter season. On some days so do we so let us just say we are open by chance or by appointment!

Please remember to reserve your fall kayaking trip through BrassWind Landing Boat Rental. We are taking reservations for  fall color tour river trips on the  Indian River portion of the Inland Waterway and on the Sturgeon River. Sturgeon River Trips can start in Wolverine for a 2 hours trip or you can start at Fisher Woods in Indian River and head out onto Burt Lake to see the fall colors around Burt Lake which is about a 45 minute trip and is an easier part of the river. What does that mean for you as the paddler?  It’s the easier part of the river where you will be less likely to tip over. We only rent kayaks that do exceptionally well on the Sturgeon River so our tip over rate is very low.  Less than 30%.  I would venture to say the tip over rate in a Remix Xp is less than 20%. I hope to have exact data for you soon.

Please call for reservations as our fall color trips our booking very quickly. We still have a few  times slots available for Thursday, October 4th through Sunday, October 7th as well as from Thursday, October 11th through Sunday ,October 14th and finishing out the season with Sturgeon River and Indian River Trips on Thursday October 18th through Sunday October 21st, 2012.

If you are a die hard kayaker with cold weather gear, a wet suit, dry suits and neoprene boots or booties we will be renting kayaks throughout  most of the winter based on reservations, your  gear, the weather and our availability.  Please call Richard or Sheree Lincoln for more information about Winter Kayak Trips in Northern Michigan at 231-238-4843 or if  no response we may be off skiing. Call our Google Voice number at 231-753-8029 – it will ring to our cell phone.

The Art Gallery and Paddlesports Store maybe open Saturday, October 27th  for a Fall Shopping eVent put together by Mary from Blooming Ideas in downtown Indian River. Stay tuned for more information on that.
