Hello from Seagull!

Hi everyone!

We have been incredibly busy this June!  Twas' the season for staff training, and we are very excited for you all to meet our team upon your arrival at Seagull this summer! It's incredibly difficult to imagine that it's almost July already... time has flown!

Deb, Dave, Brittney, Nate, Alex, and Tia have returned for another successful season, and we have welcomed seven new additional staff from throughout the country. We are happy to have Ian (California), Tucker, Mason, and Liz (Minnesota), Sam (Ohio), and Rachel (Wisconsin) on our team for 2017. Everyone is trained, anxious to meet new customers, and ready to make your BWCA and Quetico dreams come true! Shoutout to Wayne and Jim Vanek (below) for thirty years of dedication of Seagull Outfitters! Thank you guys, and we'll see you next year!

Reservations have been pouring in; we have a very busy season ahead of us. We do still have a few cabin openings for Summer 2017... check out our cabin availability at You'll have to act fast; they won't be available for long! YES, there are still BWCA and Quetico entry permits available! Call us today at 218-388-2216 to discuss your options.

NEW IN 2017: HIGH SPEED WIFI IN EACH OF OUR RENTAL CABINS! We understand that many of you cannot disconnect completely from work, so we have answered your demands with the installation of high-speed WiFi in each of our cabins on Seagull and Saganaga Lake(s).

The lake water is clear and the undergrowth is looking incredibly green due to the amount of rain that we've received earlier this spring. The blueberry crop this year will be OUTRAGEOUS; we'll be sure to keep you posted with photos along the way! Water levels are average/slightly above average.

We've seen quite a few moose in the past month or so, and even a few bears along the side of the Gunflint on our way to town! Remember, this is their home, so please try to be respectful should you encounter wildlife on your trip. We LOVE customer photo submissions... it makes you feel like you're there with them in the woods! Check out the moose that we spotted on Sag Lake Trail (above) a few weeks ago!

Fishing has been INCREDIBLE. Prepare yourself for whopping smallmouth bass, delicious northern pike, and trophy walleye! Ask the Seagull staff where the fish are biting upon your arrival; I promise that they won't disappoint :) We look forward to seeing you on the water!

Thanks again for following our adventures; we hope to see you this summer at Seagull Outfitters!

Summer will be here SOON!

Hi everyone!

Myself (Brittney), Nate, Deb, and Dave are back on-site on Seagull Lake and have been working hard to prepare Seagull Outfitters for the 2017 paddle season! We've got a lot of work ahead of us, but we're looking forward to seeing all of your smiling faces within the next few weeks :)

Ice officially went out of Seagull Bay on April 14, 2017- but we've had quite a blast of cold air the past week. Lows are in the 20s and our bay has begun to freeze again. Roads are slick- the combination of snow and sleek has caused quick a stir for Gunflint travelers. Not good! Crossing our fingers that warm temps will appear next week. We're eager to get guests out on the water!

We've hired ten staff total for our 2017 season. Deb hired me year-round in January as the Guest Services Manager and I'll be working for my fourth summer at Seagull, Nate will be returning to aid with the outside logistics/tows for his third summer, and Alex will be returning to assist me with the office/routing work for his second summer. We're welcoming seven bright personalities to our staff- please say hello to Rachel, Jaken, Sam, Liz, Tucker, Ian, and Max when you arrive! We're very excited to start working with them.

We've been busy promoting our NEW online reservation form for 2017 reservations at It's very simple... fill out your contact information, trip details, and make your deposit online before submission. Once approved, you receive an email confirmation with your trip details! Painless, easy, and available 24/7!

Make a note that the Minnesota Fishing Opener is on May 13, 2017! We are happy to open our cabins on May 12th to accommodate early fishermen. Good luck this year! Get excited!
