Excursion

Kayak the open water of Lake Ontario from Chimney Bluffs State Park to Sodus Point and back. Hugging the shoreline, we will pass the stunning Chimney Bluffs State Park. The Chimney Bluffs are clay deposits continually sculpted into towering spires by wind and erosion since the last ice age. Paddling on Lake Ontario is a pleasure on calm sunny days, and a thrilling adventure when the surf is up. The unique scenery does not disappoint.

Beginning at the East end of Chimney Bluffs State park, we will paddle west 4 miles, to Sodus Point Beach Park for lunch and a break. We will stop on the beach at Chimney Bluffs State Park for a break and photos on the way back. This 8-mile tour can be completed in 5-6 hours.

Skill level

This full day open water tour is for moderately skilled kayakers who love a challenge and striking views. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, an alternate paddle in the more protected waters of Sodus Bay can be just as pleasurable.

Details

This kayak provides unmatched views of the Lake Ontario shoreline. A true sense of adventure can be found just a few strokes from shore. Be sure to bring plenty of water and snacks!

Fantastic tour of Chimney Bluffs

My spouse and I took this tour on Sunday, 10/14/2019. Absolutely gorgeous trip that runs along Chimney Bluffs State Park. The water was crystal clear blue and the background of the bluffs was spectacular. Dennis and Patrick were terrific guides and took many great pictures for us. Highly recommend this trip! Brad
