Meyers Beach has the best and biggest caves in all the Apostle Islands.  This is the section of caves that became famous as the ice caves, they are absolutely breath taking, but it is important to note that other outfitters will be at the caves as well as private paddlers.  It is a 1 mile  paddle from Meyers Beach to the first cave and the first 1/2 mile of caves can be a bit crowded but we still explore all the nooks and cranny’s.  The 1/2 Cave tour explores the first half of the sea caves and then returns.  The full sea cave tour explores all the caves and spends time exploring the sea stacks, tunnel caves and sea arches on the back end of the sea caves, where it is less crowded.

*Must be less than 250 lbs and less than 6’5 with hip width less than 20″ to properly fit in the gear for this tour.*

*(Single kayaks and Tandem Kayaks Allowed on this tour)*

 These are the best caves on any island that we can we can paddle to in a day. The tour requires 8 miles of paddling, however once you arrive at these caves there is usually very few people there.  The sandstone on Sand Island is mesmerizing, rich iron banding and smaller granular size makes them appear as an abstract masterpiece.  This billion year old sandstone is truly an awe inspiring natural wonder.  The sea caves on Sand Island are unique because they act like one inter-connected tunnel cave, weaving from one cave to another with the incredible sounds of the caves reverberating off the walls.  We also include beach combing on this tour as there is a beautiful beach and hiking trail right next to the caves at Sand Island.  Please, pack a lunch for this tour.

 Red Cliff Caves Tour:  2 Hr ($55)  (Single and Tandem Kayaks)

Must be greater than 25lbs less than 300 lbs and less than 7′ with hip width less than 30″ to properly fit in the gear for this tour.*

Kids 3-10 yrs old  50% off each for each 2 adults

This tour departs from the beach at Legendary Waters Resort.  The caves North of Red Cliff are in the Chequamegon layer and are the feature for which the the red cliff  band of Ojibwe received their namesake, the mesmerizing red sandstone that towers so majestically along their shoreline.  There are several caves that you can get kayaks into and there are some very well preserved shipwrecks in shallow water along the way.  The shipwrweck Fedora is in such shallow water you can reach out and touch it from your kayak.  This paddle also has some very tall sandstone cliffs and one beautiful sea arch that is as intricate and massive as any sea arch in the Apostle Islands.

The Red cliff caves tour stays close to shore and allows us to offer single kayaks and tandem kayaks, it’s your choice.  These cliffs are just as tall as Meyers Beach and the caves are nearly as good, but we hardly ever see anyone else at these caves.  We will traverse every nook and cranny and give you all the time you want to explore the caves, take photos and bask in the brilliance of their beauty.
