SUP EXPEDITION TO BRUCE PENINSULA

The Niagara Escarpment meets crystal clear cold turquoise waters creating magical water.

Beautiful Limestone Cliffs

next to Caribbean blue waters is not something you would expect to find in Central Canada but along the Bruce Peninsula on Lake Huron the Niagara Escarpment meets crystal clear cold turquoise waters. Most people see it from the Bruce Trail but my husband Kevin and I along with our friend Tim wanted to take a closer look along the coastline with our new Pau Hana Surf Supply Endurance Touring Boards. Our boards carried 60lbs of gear for what we would need for the next three days in frigid temps. Another reason we explored this place was the coastal bouldering. The first day of our trip we were met with a 30 mph tail wind and enjoyed an awesome 15-mile downwinder to our first camp site. The boards were extremely stable even when the swells met the sea cliffs and created heavy chop. The second day the wind mellowed and we cruised along the coast hunting bouldering lines and snorkeling. We found some incredible climbing on the limestone boulders. The third day we stopped at the Grotto and went for a really cool paddle and swim into the cave. It’s incredible how clear the water is and how many caves were along the coast. It was a magical trip and I can’t wait to go back and explore some more on the Endurance!
