The Bass Islands of Lake Erie are a series of near shore islands off the coast of Ohio. The islands offer many opportunities for hiking, camping, snow sports, and especially paddling!  The chain of nearshore islands formed by glaciations offer amazing views of limestone outcrops, beautiful sandy beaches, and wildlife native only to Lake Erie. 

Great Miami Outfitters is hosting a 2-day, 1-night sea kayaking trip from Catawba Point to South and Middle Bass Islands!  Join our kayak instructors and trip leaders as we paddle across open water and circumnavigate the near shore islands!  Use this trip to refine your skills gained from our 2-day Essentials of Kayak Touring held Thursday and Friday (July 26-27) prior to this trip! 

Join us for this outbound sea kayaking trip to apply your sea kayaking skills and further your paddling education!  Our group will be using a variety of outdoor skills and paddling techniques required for multi-day sea kayaking, including – proper campsite set up, filtering and purifying water, proper food storage, Leave No Trace principles, and more! If you are looking for more education of these or other topics, let our Program Staff know at the pre-trip meeting and they will incorporate more education into your trip!
