Rethink your relationship with Detroit

Detroit Kayak excursions.



Detroit Outpost is a kayak outfitter on the Detroit river located just a 5 minute paddle across from Belle Isle. Our excursions start as early as the sunrise and late as the moonrise and we love doing it 7 days a week. We offer private party excursions and we also offer weekly open paddles where you and friends can paddle with small groups. Let us know if you want to plan an private excursion or check out are calendar to join an open paddle.

Open Paddles

Throughout the week you can join us on our open paddles. We usually break up into small groups depending on where you want to go.  This is a great way to experience the Detroit River and to meet other paddlers. You can join us for sunset paddles on weekdays, day paddles on Saturdays or sunrise paddles on Sunday mornings. Bring a friend or just come solo.


Private  Excursions

A private excursion can be booked on any date and time during the season.  A private excursion can be any one of our open tour routes or a custom route or tour of your choosing. There is no minimum number of paddlers for our excursions and the Price of a typical 2 hour excursion is also $40 per paddler.  Also, if you are looking for a longer trip we are up for the challenge! Plan an adventure and let us know what preparations we can help with.

Peace is on a river in Detroit and Missy will take you there!
