Planning a Boundary Waters trip takes time and a lot of packing. There are several outfitters, ready to help you with everything you’ll need in the wilderness.
In this weeks Get Outdoors, Meteorologist Adam Lorch heads up the Gunflint trail to talk to a real camping expert.
Deb Mark, Owner of Seagull Canoe Outfitters, says”This is the 32nd year of owning Seagull outfitters. I grew up on the Gunflint Trail as a kid.”
“I get a feel for what they’re looking for, The make up of the party, their experience level, and then I fit them for what I think is the best route.” said Deb.
Deb explains, “But I have a lot of repeat people who have been doing this for many years and they just call me up and say “Deb, what should I do this time?””
Seagull Outfitters does full or partial outfitting trips. They will rent you a canoe, pack the necessities, and even make your meals! But Deb’s favorite meal up there might depend a bit on your skill, or luck.
Regardless of how much wildlife you see, the rain or the bugs, you’re bound to have a fun time on a unique adventure. Deb said, “But the joy I get out of it is fitting people for an experience of a lifetime.”
If you prefer the “Glamping” method, Seagull Canoe Outfitters says they also have cabins to rent.
