Active Duty Military Personnel Special Offer

We offer free rental and outfitting for Military Personnel who are home on leave. This offer is for themselves (and may include an immediate family member or significant other when accompanying the soldier who is home on leave). This offer is good for up to 5 days for each soldier who lives within 200 miles of the Silent Glide Canoe and Kayak Shop and is able to transport any equipment themselves. There will only be a charge for time and expenses if I provide transport or shuttle service for equipment and/or people. Please call 715-748-0148 or contact us as far in advance as possible as this offer is contingent on the availability of rental equipment. Thanks for all you do!

Guiding and Outdoor Adventures

The Silent Glide also offers trip planning assistance to Wisconsin and Boundery Waters Canoe Area destinations. We can assess and augment your paddling skills as necessary through on the water instruction. Themes for trips could include ideas like the folllowing:

  • A Taste of Wisconsin: Relax, paddle, camp, bird watch, eat well, etc. This trip can be exactly what you want it to be. For instance: Perhaps you would like to drive to several gorgeous northern Wisconsin lakes and rivers that you have heard about. You would like to bring your bike and do some riding as well as paddling and get picked up rather than return on the bike. Camping in US Forest service campgrounds is fine with you some nights but you would like more primitive camping on others and maybe camping out of the canoe on still others. Stopping to visit state wild life areas for a tour would be fun to add in and maybe visit with a geologist to learn about the formation of our land and water resources. Just spend a week enjoying and learning at your own pace and even decide that pace as we go. Maybe you have a camper you would like to use. Perhaps you have a group of friends and would like to caravan from place to place. After we make a basic plan, you leave the details to us and just have fun. As with all trips, we expect you to help out with camp chores; it is part of the fun after all.
  • Just for fun: No particular theme. Just get out there for a few hours or a few days. You tell us what kind of experience you would like, and we help you accomplish just that. It might be fishing, bird watching, exercise or just relaxed day dreaming. Perhaps you would like a steak cook out on an island at sunset. Maybe it is just the feel of the evening breeze as you drift in your kayak or canoe.
  • Winter in the Wilderness: Experience a two to five day winter camping adventure. This is strictly non-motorized. Travel by pulling our toboggans of gear to gorgeous destinations, build camp, and enjoy the outdoors in winter like you may never have imagined. Fishing, wildlife observation, survival skills, photography and awesome meals await. A variation, depending on the winter conditions may involve some paddling of lakes or rivers. Check the website event list for 1 to 2 hour snowshoe hikes in the nearby Chequamegon National forest where we will visit lakes, rivers and trails through a semi wilderness setting, including gorgeous sections of the National Ice Age Scenic Trail.

Outfitting

Need outfitting for your adventure? Paddling and camping gear is available on request, but we will need to know your plans, skill and experience levels and equipment preferences. This will take some discussion followed by a proposal and competitive package based on your needs. Contact us to inquire about availability.

Paddling Instruction

Basic to intermediate canoe and kayak instruction are available by request for adults and youth accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. However, there are minimum physical and intellectual ability requirements for your safety. We will customize your paddling instruction to meet your needs, budget and schedule. If you need equipment, we will provide it as part of the package deal.
