Paddle Board Adventure on Burt Lake

Group Paddle at Sunset – Kayak or SUP Rental

Plan an evening Sunset paddle in Indian River, Michigan.  This is a group paddle boarding event on Burt Lake. We paddle at DeVoe Beach near the mouth of the Indian River. If you need to rent a board please call in advance or stop in on Thursday durnig the day to reserve the SUP or kayak and pre-pay so we can have it at the lake for you.

Kayak or SUP Meet Up

Have your own kayak or stand up paddleboard and want some other people to paddle with? Meet at DeVoe beach at 8:45 PM Thursday evenings for a sunset paddle.

 Waves and Weather

We plan to paddle on Burt Lake. However based on the wind and waves we may decide  head down the Indian River or even put in directly on the river at the ramp on Witt. 

We can also paddle from Burt Lake into the mouth of the Sturgeon River and paddle against the current as far as we can (About to M27). The cedar trees are beautiful and the water is well behaved in thus stretch. Then its a fast gondola like paddle back to Burt Lake.


Have a SUP or kayak? No Cost to Meet up.

Need a Sup or Kayak?  $20 for the Sunset Paddle.

Cody, River Guide  from Big Bear Adventures raced the Indian River Biathlon in  BrassWind Landing’s sea kayak from Native Watercraft, the  Inuit 14.5. Cody placed in the top 10 and won 2nd place in his 20-30 age group division. Wow!  We got some fabulous photos and I notice later that his shirt said “Pure Adrenaline” on the back… I am sure it helped his fabulous performance. We are very excited that He choose to run the race in one of our sea kayaks.  You can rent this boat for an Indian River Trip or to go kayaking on Burt Lake.  We were excited to be there to watch the race and take most of the photos in this Slide Show. The last few photos are by Indian River Striders Photographer Winnie Johnson.

Took our little dog out on the Versa Board for a stand on top paddle trip on the Indian River Spread Tonight.  The Versa board is fun, makes a great swim platform and you can also sit on it. I had no trouble paddling it with the single long handled paddle. I think the next time I will try it with the seat. Give my Shih Tzu a place out of the water to sit.
