This venerable resort area in northern Lake Huron boasts a maze of forested islands, sheltered channels, and limestone-girded coves that are ideal for exploration by kayak. A longtime playground for sailboats, cabin cruisers, and mahogany runabouts, the sheltered bays and channels of Les Cheneaux Islands—known as “the Snows” in local parlance—have attracted growing numbers of kayakers in recent years. Many of the islands still feature quiet marshes, crystal-clear bays, and pristine shorelines of cedar and hardwood forest, and the Snows’ numerous antique summer houses and classic boathouses conjure up visions of an earlier, sepia-hued era in Michigan history. These qualities make the region an underrated gem for sea-kayaking enthusiasts.
