APOSTLE ISLANDS KAYAKING
Apostle Islands Kayaking can be unpredictable; our primary goal is safety. We have the best safety record in the Apostle Islands because we are the most cautious and we choose to paddle in the most protected locations, away from large crowds. The biggest concern for paddlers on Lakes Superior is the cold water temperatures and large waves. We offer a sea cave kayak options on the East side of the Bayfield Peninsula where the water is warmer and we only launch in calm (less than 1 ft wave) conditions.
BEST CHANCE OF LAUNCHING
Tours at Meyers Beach get canceled due to weather about 20% of the time.

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.
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.
WHAT IF WE CANCEL?
We are a cautious outfitter and this means we do have to cancel sometimes, but if we ever cancel your Apostle Islands kayak tour you receive a 100% refund.
In the event of a weather cancellation we also give your group priority re-booking, meaning we will open up spots on whatever tour you want and for whatever date you choose.
