Join us for a coveted Big Canoe tour of the St. Marys River, led by our expert local guides. Canoe guides will take you on a journey along this historic water trail while sharing their knowledge about the local history, culture, and environment. Throughout the easy paddle, there will be plenty of time to take photos. We’ll dock at the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre, and then enjoy a flight of beer (or cocktail, if that’s your preference!) at the Northern Superior Tap Room patio over a hot pretzel with delicious beer cheese dip. Only 14 tickets available for this adults-only event. Tickets are $75 each, and only available online. Over $30 of each ticket sold supports Lake Superior Watershed Conservancy (LSWC) and Sault Area Hospital Foundation (SAHF).
