If you have the heart for adventure, then boating and kayaking is perfect for you! Before going on a water trail trip, it’s important to check the safety guidelines and existing rules as Michigan and Ontario have different boating laws. A personal flotation device is generally required for each person onboard. Likewise, children 16 and below must wear life jackets while on the vessel. Recommended equipment include:

  • Food supplies and water
  • Footwear (water sandals, river shoes, or old tennis shoes)
  • River map
  • Sunscreen
  • Cap or hat
  • Insect repellant
  • Sunglasses
  • IDs
  • Mobile phone in waterproof bag
  • Camera 
  • Binoculars
  • Fire starter
  • Fishing gears and license
  • Knife
  • Paddling gloves
  • Rain gear
  • Toilet paper
  • Waterproof flashlight and extra batteries
  • Extra lines
  • Trash bags

I live between Las Vegas and Lexington. Have been in Lexington since 1984. So if you have any questions about the area, I know it.
