Grand Island is one of the most popular paddling destinations in all of Michigan due to its beautiful scenery consisting of sandstone cliffs, sandy beaches, sea caves, and historic lighthouses. The trip starts from the launch site of the Grand Island Ferry and travels over to the south end of Grand Island. Paddlers can then follow the shoreline up through Murray Bay, a large protected bay that offers lots of forested shoreline with sandy beaches. While the water on the southern end of the island is fairly protected, winds on Lake Superior can stir up some rough, cold waters so be cautious and pay close attention to the weather.
