RATES FOR OUTFITTING


 The average portage distance between lakes in Sylvania is ľ mile. Light weight canoes will make your  trip more enjoyable. We have light weight canoes in aluminum, Royalex and Kevlar. Aluminum canoes have keels and are easier for beginners to steer. Royalex canoes are quieter, and more experienced canoeists have no problem keeping them on line.  There is much to explore and experience in the Sylvania Wilderness Area of Michigan's Upper Peninsula and Sylvania Outfitters knows how to get you there...and back!  Below is the information you need to pick the trip that suits you best.  We want to ensure your trip is a good as it can be!

A deposit of $20 for each watercraft will hold your watercraft rental.  Upon arrival, the deposit will become your security deposit, refunded when you return the equipment after your trip.  A deposit of $100 is required for the complete outfitting package. Cancellation notice must be given 48 hours prior to your arrival for a deposit refund.
