Serving The Inland Waterway Area

We can help with your river trip or inland waterway trip logistics by spotting or transporting your kayak or canoe back to our shop or to your vehicles along one of our regular routes. We transport with 2 Mini-Van’s so please keep in mind our rates are based on 4 to 6 passengers and not based on a 15 person vehicle. Our transport service is available for the Sturgeon River, the Indian River and the Inland Waterway trip on Burt Lake and the Southern portion of Mullett Lake. We charge $1.25 per mile from from our start point to our end point – that includes 1 boat and 1 person. $10 for each additional person/kayak. brasswind landing larger trailer - image

There are 3 ways to arrange a shuttle for your paddling trip.

  1. We transport you and not your vessel. We pick you up at what will be the end point of your trip, your take out point, and then drive you back to your launch point.  You can launch at your leisure. That way you can also paddle  as long as you like and your vehicle will be waiting for you. We keep you phone number handy and are available if you need us during your trip.
  2. We transport you and your vessel one way. You meet at BrassWind Landing, we help you drop your car at your end point and then we take you and your kayaks or canoe to the launch point. You can launch at your leisure and your vehicle will be waiting for you at the end of you trip.
  3. We transport you and your boat to the launch point and then come back and pick you up at the end point. You leave your vehicle in our parking lot.
