Welcome to the Inland Seas
School of Kayaking

Here at the Inland Seas School of Kayaking, we are very interested in getting people introduced correctly to the ever-growing sport of sea kayaking. We also want to challenge more advanced kayakers to develop their skills by taking some of our advanced classes. Because we believe that people tend to protect something when they understand, appreciate, and respect it, we include an environmental approach to everything we do.

Our goal is to provide sea kayak instruction and educational tours at all levels in order to promote safety on the water and a protective attitude toward our environment.

Sea Kayak Instruction

We are a complete outfitter offering guided trips as well as sea kayak instruction. We provide well-maintained, quality kayaks and equipment for all classes and trips.

The Best Beach on the Island

For the beginner we can paddle the well-protected harbor area or the blue-green waters of Little Sand Bay.

For the intermediate paddler, we can explore one of the surrounding islands while working on skills and rescues.

Sea Kayak Tours

For the more advanced, we can visit the outer islands, develop your roll, or do some surfing.

Beaver Island Inland Lake Eco-Tours

We also run eco-tours on the beautiful inland lakes in recreational kayaks designed for the entire family. Join us as we explore the lakes and discover unique plant and animal life. Bring your cameras and binoculars and join in the fun.


Most trips do not require prior experience. Great fun for kids, families, and friends. Enjoy our lakes and island archipelago. We also provide opportunities for the experienced paddler.

Use the menu on the left, or click for a list of classes and trips.

All trips are guided by Ken Bruland, an experienced sea kayak guide and instructor with ACA, BCU, CPR, Wilderness EMT, Water Rescue, and EMT Paramedic Certifications.
