31st Annual Great Lakes Sea Kayak Symposium


  • Grand Marais, MI 49885 USA (map)

Join us at North America's oldest paddlesports festival and symposium!

The Great Lakes Sea Kayak Symposium is in its 31st year and takes place on the stunning waters of Lake Superior. The sleepy town of Grand Marais, Michigan, serves as our event base and gives us access to Grand Island, the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, the Grand Sable Dunes, Agate Beach, and the protected waters of Grand Marais harbor.

The Art of Paddling is a proud sponsor and co-organizer of the Great Lakes Sea Kayak Symposium. Jeremy's first GLSKS was in 1992 and he now watches with joy as his young sons find the same energy and excitement that he did so many years ago.
