EXPLORE INNER SEAS

Prairie Sea Kayak Adventures offer a unique experiential and emotional connection with nature, set in the heart of the Interlake. Our tours build appreciation for the diversity of species so often missed when we move more quickly.

PSKA is dedicated to providing opportunities to enjoy guided kayaking in a safe setting, namely Willow Creek (3 miles south of Gimli, Manitoba) which flows into Lake Winnipeg.  You will be provided a two hour guided tour of the creek where you can glide above the water’s surface, allowing you to get close to nature.

On specific days, outlined in the calendar, we provide special experiences as part of our kayaking tours (examples are yoga, birding, photography, celestial viewings, and other special events).  These packages provide fun and exciting ways to freely explore the Creek and Lake.

We cannot protect something we do not love, we cannot love what we do not know, and we cannot know what we do not see. Or hear. Or sense.

About the Area

Willow Creek is the terminus for a 1200 square kilometer watershed as it flows into Lake Winnipeg. 

Wetlands have often been described as the kidneys of the landscape because of the role they play in water and chemical cycles. Wetlands filter out sediment and pollution from the surrounding environment so that the water they discharge is cleaner that which entered the wetland. In this manner, wetlands act as both a sink and source, storing and passing on vital resources to their local environment. 

The Willow Creek is home to the tall grass and prairie marsh ecosystem that supports a wide variety of amphibians, birds, invertebrates, mammals, reptiles, and fish.  Over a hundred species of plants adorn the Creek as well. 

UPCOMING EVENTS:

We have some special tours coming up in 2021!

Spring is on the cusp, just around the corner. Throughout Manitoba we are emerging from a frozen landscape to the drip, trickle, stream, flow, gush, and rush of water into the many creeks, rivers, and lakes in Manitoba. This is my favourite season of the year, and I'm excited to let you know that the Prairie Sea Kayak Adventures calendar is updated and ready to book at prairieseakayak.ca

In addition to the Willow Creek, Netley Creek, Hecla, Whiteshell, Pinawa Channel, Yoga, Icelandic River, and celestial tours, we are adding one more tour this year, a two-day tour to Little Limestone Lake. Be sure to check that out.

Looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and folks who are new to our tours in the 2021 season!
