DAY 1: Arrive at Wilderness Inquiry's Little Sand Bay Base Camp and enjoy sunset yoga on the beach.
Your trip starts in early afternoon at Wilderness Inquiry's Little Sand Bay Base Camp. Get settled into your campsite, participate in a sea kayak orientation, and begin to explore this area's beautiful hemlock and cedar trees. Return to camp and enjoy a hearty meal cooked campside. After dinner, head down to the lake for sunset yoga on the beach.
DAY 2: Begin your day with yoga, followed by a paddle to the Mawikwe Bay Sea Caves.
Start the day with a yoga session followed by breakfast and great coffee. Depending on the direction of the wind, explore the spectacular Mawikwe Bay Sea Caves or head to Red Cliff to explore Buffalo Bay and paddle among shipwrecks from long ago. Stretch your legs on a hike to a waterfall after a picnic lunch. Enjoy an evening yoga session before dinner together.
DAY 3: Paddle to Sand Island and share stories around the campfire at night.
After breakfast and yoga, paddle out to Sand Island. Visit sea caves and the historic lighthouse on the northeast shore of Sand Island. Weather permitting, paddle in and out of the caves' sculpted rock chambers. After a picnic lunch on a sandy beach, we’ll hike up to the historic lighthouse. Enjoy one last night at base camp with yoga followed by great food and good company sharing stories over a toasty fire.
DAY 4: Enjoy one last adventure before saying farewell to your trip mates.
Enjoy one last morning yoga session with your new friends. Head out on a paddle or hike and depart for home after a picnic lunch.
