Accesible only by boat, Strawberry Island is another fine option for kiteboarding on Lk. St. Clair. Positioned as the eastern peninsular collar of Anchor Bay the north end, it is nicely exposed to N, NW, W, SW, S, and even SE winds.

Strawberry Island's waters to be a bit cooler as the Middle Channel of the St. Clair River is nearby and brings in chilly currents from Lk. Huron. It is also shallow, approx. waist deep for hundreds of meters in some directions, miles in others. 5 to 10'' chop here is the norm although nice ramps form out in the lake and if you like flat water you do not have to go far to find glass.

Launching and landing options vary. The shallow water makes boat launches a breeze and allows you to set yourself up in the best spot for any particular direction. There is also a small beach that can accomodate up to two maybe three kites to be rigged up but you must still launch from the water due to the proximity of large trees. And the sand gets darn hot on sunny days.
