Meyers Beach has the largest caves, the largest cliffs and also tends to have the largest crowds.  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.

Roman’s Point Sea Cave Tour: 3 HR  $50 per person (Single and tandem kayaks)

romanspoint

*** Runs 5/22/17 to 10/8/17***

Roman’s point is a stretch of caves in Siskiwit Bay directly in front of Cornucopia, that lead into Bark Bay.  There are 8 really good caves that you can get your kayak into and in several spots you are able to paddle through tunnel caves.  The tip of Roman’s Point is a beautiful 50 foot tall sandstone arch that frames Bark bay as you paddle through it.

The Roman’s Point tour stays close to shore and allows us to offer single kayaks and tandem kayaks, it’s your choice.  Roman’s point sandtone 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.

 Shipwreck Tour:  2 Hr ($40)    (Single and Tandem Kayaks)  

(Kid friendly 20-35 lbs allowed)

Kids 4-10 yrs old  50% off for each paddling adult

On the night of 20 September 1901, the 280 foot long wooden steamer Fedora steamed south into the channel between the Wisconsin mainland and Basswood Island, heading for Ashland. The demise was quick and violent. A kerosene lamp blew up in the engine room, igniting oil drums and turning the vessel into a giant floating fire. With the water pumps also located in the engine room, the ship was doomed, the crew in immediate danger. The huge fire lit up the shoreline, giving Capt. Frank Fick his best hope to save his men. Before flames hit the pilothouse, Capt. Fick steered the ramming the vessel onto a sandbar just offshore. As the ship burned down, the crew and captain safely swam to the beach, glad to be alive.   This shipwreck is in very shallow water exposing a bit of the hull’s planking. The chilly water has kept what remains of this vessel remarkably well preserved after over a century. This is our easiest tour and great for kids.

 Sand Island Sea Cave Tour  $108  ( 5 HR)

($98, if you prefer to bring your own lunch)

*Must be at least 12 yrs old and 100 lbs*

*Must be less than 275 lbs and less than 6’6 to properly fit in the gear for this tour.*

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

 These are the best caves we can get you to on a day tour. 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.  It is nearly as private as Roman’s Point sea cave but the caves are much better on Sand Island.  We provide lunch on this tour or for $10 less you can bring your own lunch
