Day Trip Options

Battle Island Lighthouse:RossportKayaking13-0278

Originally built in 1877 Battle Island Lighthouse stands as a sentinel over the open waters of Lake Superior at the eastern entrance to Nipigon Bay.  The full day trip covers a distance of 22 Kms and is best suited for the intermediate paddler.  The route from Rossport follows the western shoreline of Quarry Island and across Willson Channel to the protect waters of Chummy's Harbour before crossing to Battle Island. Over a shore lunch your guide will retell the tale of the gale force winds and storm surge that once generated waves so high they blew the windows out of the lighthouse.  After lunch take a short hike to the lighthouse before climbing back into your kayak and making the return trip to Rossport with a short stop to view the wreck of the Ontario.
