Waves at the Caves

You will need waves of 1 foot or less to enter any sea cave location.  The sea caves in Chequamegon Bay and Red Cliff are much more protected than all the other locations and waves are less than 1 foot most of the time. 

Romans Point, Mawikwe Bay, Sand Island and Devil’s Island have the best sea caves in the Apostle Islands but they are also very dangerous places to paddle, with waves over 1 foot quite often.  


About Our Tours

We cater to families with kids and people who are looking for a relaxing paddle without crowds.  Apostle Islands kayak tours can be dangerous but we choose to paddle in conditions that are not challenging. 

We offer one challenging sea cave tour and that is Roman’s Point, Roman’s point has the best sea caves we offer tours to.

We tell you this to help you make your outfitter decision.

Our guided tours take place at secluded sea cave destinations, where we are likely to be the only group there. 


We allow you plenty of time inside each cave to sit and enjoy the ambiance and take as many photos as you like.  Our goal is to get you off the beaten path and away from the crowds.


We do not do tours to Meyers Beach because it is too crowded.  We Suggest taking rentals to Meyers Beach because then you won’t have to wait in line for the caves.



Apostle Islands Sea Caves Map

Sea Caves can be found at the following locations.  Each location is given a star rating for the sea caves, ease of access, and crowd levels.

The overall Star rating is a combination of those three things.

About Us

Our goal is to facilitate your Apostle Islands kayak adventure into one of the most unique and biodiverse destinations in North America.   

The Apostle Islands are a sandstone island achipelago that feature long stretches of  towering sandstone cliffs nestled amonst pristine beaches. These islands are some of the last places to find old growth boreal forest and home to the famous sea caves.

The expanse of Lake Superior surrounding Apostle Islands National Lakeshore has endless pockets of natural splendor.

The guides at Apostle Islands Adventures have spent years exploring the area, only to find untapped locales of awe-inspiring landscapes. The team dedicates their time helping others seek out places of serenity by traveling by boat or kayak.

Whether crossing to an island or exploring a sea cave, the team specializes in private or small group tours. Tour-goers are also free to explore on their own by renting a kayak complete with instruction.

Kayak Tours

Something for everyone

•  Tours are appropriate for beginners and inexperienced paddlers.  

•  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.

This is a video of all the Mawikwe Bay Sea Caves, also known as Meyers Beach.  We do not do tours to these caves due to the crowds, but if you take a rental to these caves, this video will show you the location of the caves and other interesting features at the Mawikwe Bay Sea Caves.

Kayak Rentals

Lake Superior is the most dangerous lake

•  Lake Superior is a sleeping dragon.  You hear lake and think to yourself “I’ve kayaked on lakes before”.  It is far more dangerous to kayak on Lake Superior than most oceanic shorelines in the United States. 

•  The real danger is the water temperatures but the location of the lake lies right in the jet stream, so winds can be brutal as well. 

•  If you are thinking of renting a kayak we highly encourage you to call us and we will spend as much time as you want answering whatever questions you have. 

•  If you haven’t kayaked on Lake Superior and you don’t have any questions, you should probably reconsider renting a kayak in the Apostle Islands.


Military and Group Discounts

•  We offer group  discounts starting at 10 people 10% off, and the discounts increase as the group size grows. 

•  We also offer group discounts to active and retired military and their immediate family members.

•  Give us a call and we will discuss what type of discount we can offer and we’ll also tell you where to find places off the beaten path that can be one of the highlights of your visit to the Apostle Islands.
