  BIG BIG water and small boats

Don't kid yourself about the southern tip
of the Detroit River as you go past Celeron Island.

RKC has great knowledgeable people and often
launches from the Portofino's restaurant area.
Paddling in groups will expose you to lots of info.

The current dumping into the lake along with wind direction
can make "southern" locations pretty rough.
Those Short Kayaks will get tossed like bobbers,
instead of slicing thru wave trains.

It's ocean paddling, not Cass Lake, Orchard Lake.

Can be a ton of fun, and can be pretty darn tough
in a small human powered vessel on Big water.

Enjoy a taste of summer :

Paterson Park area
(first 3 minutes everyone is just milling about)
