We specialize in adventure facilitation for kayaking and ice cave adventures in the Apostle Islands on Lake Superior.

If you do not have kayak experience we highly suggest that you go on a sea kayaking tour with a guide. It takes kayaking skills, and you must be in good shape and you must be able to swim to kayak without a guide in the Apostle Islands. Tours are appropriate for beginners and inexperienced paddlers as we only launch in safe paddling conditions and guides are equipped to tow if necessary.

If you are visiting Bayfield from July 4th – Labor Day, please book your kayak rentals and Apostle Island sea cave tours in advance. That is our busy season and with prior notice we can guarantee a reservation for you.
