Some paddlers have all of their own equipment and do not require any help from the local canoe outfitting businesses such as ourselves, but the majority of the visitors do need some assistance. And that’s where we come in.
We are a valuable source of information, equipment and resources for these people interested in finding out what the BWCAW and Quetico have to offer. And I will tell you that this area has a lot to offer and that’s why we are of such great use for many people. We rent equipment out to customers that have chosen not to purchase all of their own equipment. We also provide valuable information about certain trips and routes throughout the area that will benefit our customers and save them time and energy while on their trip. We also have a store/gift shop at which people can purchase last minute items, T-shirts, bait and tackle and numerous other items. And all of this takes work and coordination and that’s why we employ people for the summer to help in the successful operation of our business.
We are a completely seasonal business open from early May to late September. During this time, we hire staff members to help run our operation and serve our customers looking for assistance on their journey into the canoe country. We generally hire 10-12 staff members each season for the duration of the summer. We provide these workers with a place to live, work and play for the summer and we compensate them for their efforts. Compensation is based on work experience and length of time with our company.
During our 30 years here at Seagull Outfitters, we have an extremely common comment that we get from our customers, and it goes like this: “Boy I wish I would’ve done something like this when I was young. And now I’m all grown up with kids and responsibilities that I have to resort to coming on vacation for just a week out of the year. And you get to stay here all summer long, you lucky duck.” Don’t let this be you. You have the opportunity right now. If you’ve ever thought it’d be fun to work in the Boundary Waters, now’s your chance. Do it while you’re young. You’ve thought it was fun; we can assure you that it is fun!
