Northern Waters offers guided sea kayaking tours at Michigan's Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. We have a passion for kayaking that we strive to share with others. Positions are currently available both on and off the water.

Our Ideal Candidate:
Hardworking, punctual, and friendly people with a passion for the outdoors. Strong communications skills are a must for both guiding and working in the office. Sea kayaking experience is not required as we offer in-house training that will teach you everything you need to know. We are motivated and excited to share the beauty of Lake Superior with our guests and hope you are too!

Job Duties:
Responsibilities vary between our guides and land staff. However, we prefer to cross-train our employees to develop a variety of knowledge and skills. As a guide, expect to be handling gear, providing safety/paddling talks, and paddling alongside guests in one of Michigan's most beautiful areas. In the office, you can expect to be answering calls, scheduling trips, watching weather reports, and maintaining a line of communication with our guides on the water.

About the Area:
Located on the southern shore of Lake Superior, Munising is home to Michigan's Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Known for dramatic sandstone cliffs, Pictured Rocks contains landmark formations such as Miners Castle, Lovers Leap Arch, Chapel Rock, and more. In Munising, you can spend your summer kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, and exploring one of Michigan's most beautiful natural playgrounds. Come join us for the 2019 season!
