We specialize in adventure facilitation for Kayaking and Stand Up Paddle Boarding adventures in the Apostle Islands on Lake Superior.
If you do not have kayak experience we highly suggest that you go on a tour with a guide. It takes kayaking skills, 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 rentals and tours in advance. That is our busy season and with prior notice we can guarantee a reservation for you.
Sea Caves can be found at the following locations and are listed from most impressive to least; Devil’s Island, Sand Island, Meyers Beach, Romans Point, Stockton Island, Outer Island, Ironwood Island, Cat Island, Bear Island and Madeline Island. You can expect crowds of paddlers and motor boats at Meyers Beach and Madeline Island, the other sea cave locations you will have mostly to yourself. You will need waves of 1.5 foot or less to enter the sea caves.
You must be able to swim to rent any kayak from us. Sea kayaks are the only kayaks allowed for island crossings. Any person that can eskimo roll, rodeo re-enter and T-rescue a sea kayak and can demonstrate those skills on the day of your rental will pass our free safety test. If you do not already have these kayak skills we offer a 1 hour training session for $25 per person. However, you must still be able to pass a safety test after the training session to be able to rent a sea kayak. Safety test requirements are being able to execute a successful; wet exit, re-entry and T-rescue.
Tours, Stand up paddle board rentals and sit on top kayak rentals come with free instruction. $25 safety course and safety test are only for sea kayak rentals.
When you book a tour or rental and weather forces a cancellation, we do our best to accommodate you. Other outfitters take you to Bark Bay slough and charge full price on bad weather days, we allow you to choose between a 100% refund, rescheduling for another day, or an alternate shipwreck tour for $40 in a much calmer bay. To hold a reservation we require full payment. If you cancel less than 48 hours before your reservation you receive a 50% refund. No show results in no refund. If we cancel due to weather you do have the option of a 100% refund.
