Crossing Superior

Documentary Feature, USA, 2018, 50 min, Color

About the Film

Crossing Lake Superior follows a riveting 60-mile journey three men took with their paddle boards across a lake that is often a force to be reckoned with.

Eleven-time Emmy award winner Corey Adkins tagged along to document the 22-hour journey with Stand Up for Great Lakes, including humored encounters with other freighters, a permit to do something special over waters restricted by the Canadian government, and the emotional landing at Whitefish Point.

Learn why they chose this kind of adventure to raise money for the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum in this special documentary.

Great Lakes connection:

The film is a documentary about three men who paddled 60 miles across Lake Superior on Stand Up for Great Lakes to raise money for the Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society. The adventure included centuries-old pictographs, an emotional visit to the site of the Edmund Fitzgerald, and a tear-filled (happy) landing at Whitefish Point.
