There are a lot of misconceptions out there about Cleveland’s water. You might remember hearing about the Cuyahoga river that feeds into Lake Erie burning most recently in the late 60’s.
At lot has changed since then. That fire sparked positive changes from environmentalists to improve the water quality that we got to appreciate first hand. Our first activity during my media trip with Positively Cleveland was to go kayaking. I enjoy anything with water so I was excited about this outdoor activity.
We picked up our kayak rentals from 41 North Coastal Kayak Adventures.
We got safety instructions and we were on our way.
I was joined by April and Corinne from Positively Cleveland, Heidi from “The Steel Trap.” and Melinda from 30 Something Therapy.
Our journey began on the Rocky River which feeds into Lake Erie.
The pace was relaxing and our group enjoyed checking out the names on the back of the boats along the way.
It was really exciting once we started to see the lighthouse because we were close to Lake Erie.
I can vouch that the water was really clear! The waves were pretty small during our trip which made them easy to navigate.
We could even see Cleveland’s skyline in the distance.
After paddling around a while, it was time to head back for more adventures around Cleveland.
We had a great time kayaking in Cleveland. It was a nice way to see the city from a different perspective. I would love to check out one the trips from 41 North on my next visit. They offer a variety of trips, tours and classes for all skill levels.

Clear sky, crystal clear water and gentle breeze…..
What a whether for a kayak ride. You could even enjoy pontoon ride but that could be more relaxing.
Still I can understand that you enjoyed a lot.
I would trying Mohican, but I do not know if they kayaks. I know they have got canoes. Mohican also has horseback riding and different activities, together with a couple of trails to walk on and waterfalls to appear at. When my loved ones went, we stayed on the Mohican inn, but they do have campgrounds.
We really enjoyed it. We rented kayaks from 41 North Coastal Kayak Adventures. There is a link to them in the post.
I’m glad to see that the water in Cleveland has been improved over the past few years. I’d love to try kayaking in the river, but I was worried about contaminants in the water. The pictures of your tour look gorgeous. Did you buy or rent your kayaks?
