WELCOME!   For over 35 Boundary Waters canoe trip seasons we have been one of the leading Boundary Waters outfitters  in Ely, Minnesota.  Starting from scratch in 1984, we quickly gained national attention, and rose to the upper level of BWCA Outfitters.  Three decades later, the owners are still the daily, full time, hands-on managers.  We personally map out every trip … for every party. We outfit Boundary Waters canoe trips with top-quality gear and meals for both the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and Quetico Park. Trips may start or end from our lakeside Ely, Minnesota outfitting base.  In addition, we also serve dozens of unique starting locations by van or towboat.  Boundary waters Outfitters fishingFinding the information you need for your BWCA canoe trip is easy on our web site.

Ely Minnesota, surrounded by Minnesota’s boundary waters lakes, has been preserved through the efforts of the US and Canadian governments.   Boundary Waters outfitters, along with Ontario and Minnesota governments administer the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCA) and Quetico Provincial Park. Portage – paths winding between lakes – once used by trappers and voyageurs remain unchanged over centuries of use. Fishing in the BWCA centers around smallmouth bassnorthern pike, and walleye.

Within the BWCA Wilderness, the sights, sounds and smells of forests and lakes are awaiting your arrival. We are looking forward to assisting you on your boundary waters trip with our knowledge of the area, our quality equipment, and convenient  lakeside location.
