The headquarters is located at 507 River Road Huron, Ohio 44839.  Lake Erie Adventure Company also operates a flight rental location at the Sandusky KOA.  This locations address is 2 East Shoreline Drive Sandusky, Ohio 44870.

What should you expect on the Huron River paddles?

From the main headquarters, Lake Erie Adventure Company offers three unique paddles.  South through the Huron River, guests will paddle through a channel with several areas to branch off and explore wildlife and patches of American lotus.  Directly west of the launch is Mudbrook channel, our favorite on days when the wind does not permit a comfortable lake or river paddle. And finally, the paddle to the Huron Pier Lighthouse.  This is local favorite, especially when the sun is setting you can capture breathtaking sunsets.

What should you expect on the East Sandusky Bay paddles?

The Lake Erie Adventure Company launch is located at the Sandusky KOA Campground on Cleveland Road and East Shoreline Drive.  This body of water is referred to as the Back Sandusky Bay by locals.  Guests will have to either have a membership handy or book a time slot to enter the guarded west entrance to the campground. This waterway is shallow and framed by The Cedar Point peninsula and Sandusky mainland.  Our three favorite paddles at this location are due west to get some epic photography of Cedar Point from the water, east to paddle along the gorgeous Cedar Point Chaussee “Willow Tree” road and catch amazing wildlife from the neighboring protected estuary and around the corner when the water locus and lilies are not thick, you can take a unique path through Plum Brook.  If you like to fish, bring a pole as this is a great location for Small and Largemouth Bass, Crappie and jumbo Catfish! 

What to bring and Lake Erie Adventure safety?

Through our many journeys paddling, we recommend bringing clothes that could possibly get wet, sunscreen, a hat, snacks, and some water.  LEA is all about safety, the company provides 12’ kayaks and paddle boards with extreme stability.  The Old Town Vapor 12 has a total weight load of 375 lbs., the Twin Heron total weight capacity is 500 lbs., our Sportsman 120 sit-on-top total weight capacity is 500lbs.  This provides guest a very comfortable paddle on any channel of water.  Basically, you would have to try to tip yourself over in these kayaks!  All LEA launches are manufactured by EZ Dock.  Enjoy a quick video on how easy it is to launch with Lake Erie Adventure here courtesy of local celebrity and influencer Benny!

What is sold at Lake Erie Adventure headquarters?

Prior to 2023 season LEA sold Kayaks, Paddle boards, paddling accessories, snacks and trendy clothing at 507 River Road Huron, Ohio 44839.  The headquarters will have a massive sale in May to liquidate the retail portion of the business. The decision was tough for owners Lisa and Justin Brady. The inside of Lake Erie Adventure will shift to an event space for our local community to have fun retreats with businesses, friends and families.
