Thanks for the great three years! I started this business from scratch in 2012 and made it profitable in just three years. I created several jobs in the area, and together we put about 1,000 people on the water during those three years. With regret and excitement, I’ve decided to go out of business.
Many folks that I guided knew that I was also a professional photographer. It was the primary way I made my living and the kayaking was for fun. I’ve come to a point in my life when I need to concentrate on one thing professionally and devote my free time to my family. I feel proud of what we accomplished and feel like we provided the best kayaking trips in the area and set a high standard of safety, quality and enjoyment that is still unmatched in Grand Marais.
If you’re looking for tours this summer, I recommend Sawtooth Outfitters in Tofte. They were the other quality and safe sea kayaking company in the Grand Marais area.
I’m going to miss hanging out on the beach with our customers, the crew from Java Moose and the fine people at the Lake Superior Trading Post. I’m also going to miss our many customers. We really had a great time.
