We are happy to offer a range of non-motorized craft that are complimentary for guest use. Sometimes, the best way to experience Lake Vermilion is by paddling through the waters without a motor.

Hydro-bikes are a great way to see and enjoy Vermilion. Take one out for a long ride around nearby islands and landmarks. It is not uncommon for individuals to take an hour long ride to a distant point of interest and get a great work-out in the process.

Paddleboards (SUP)

Isle and Malibu SUP boards are loads of fun. Touted by fitness advocates as one of the best core workouts you can find, our boards are used daily by health conscious adults and children seeking adventure. SUP boarding is an amazing way to stay fit while enjoying the beauty of Lake Vermilion. Due to the upright stance of the user, paddlers are able to look deep into the water and see fish and bottom structure that kayakers and canoeists might overlook.

Centuries ago, fur traders paddled canoes through the lakes and rivers of this area. Today, canoeing is still one of the best ways to get out and enjoy some quiet time on the water. Silently paddle along the shore and see what you can observe. Sneak-up on a bass guarding its bed, an eagle perched in a tree or a mink searching for dinner.
