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. If you see an image above the text you can click on it and play a video from that sea cave location.  The locations include Devil’s Island, Meyers Beach, Sand Island, Romans Point, Houghton Point, Chequamegon Bay, Madeline Island, Red Cliff, Stockton Island, Cat Island, Eagle Island, Outer Island and Spirit Point.  You can expect  large crowds at Meyers Beach. 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.

2020 KAYAKING PROCEDURES

We will not be doing any guided tours at Meyers Beach due to the large crowds at Meyers Beach parking lot and sea caves.  Overnight tours will not be available in 2020 due to the nature of tent camping and backcountry food preparation.  Boat tours will not be available in 2020 due to the inability to keep a safe distance between all customer.  We will update this statement as we know more.

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 outfitter.

We offer a sea cave tour on the West side of the Bayfield Peninsula and the East side of the Bayfield Peninsula.  We only launch in calm (less than 1 ft wave) conditions, so if it’s wavy on the East side, we go to the West side and vice versa.

OTHER OUTFITTERS

Other outfitters focus on the crowded sea caves at Meyers Beach and will launch in waves of 2 to 3 feet.

We paddle the sea caves at Roman’s Point, Red Cliff,  and Houghton Point that are lesser-known, and we only launch when the waves are 1 foot or less.  Our goal is to get you to the sea caves but away from the crowds.

In our current reality, it is essential to avoid crowds.  At crowded sea cave locations, you may have to sit in line for the caves, waiting for other outfitters to go through.  When you are finally in the caves, you are rushed through, as another outfitter is right behind you, waiting to get in.  We only paddle secluded sea cave locations and do not go to Meyers Beach and will not launch in waves over 1 foot.

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.  Other outfits may launch in conditions or locations that we will not and this is because we cater to families with kids and people who are looking for a relaxing paddle without crowds

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.

Roman’s Point has the best caves but is a challenging paddle.  Houghton Point and Red Cliff are easy paddles and great for kids or anyone looking to take it easy.  Houghton Point has a few more and slightly better caves than Red Cliff, but Red Cliff has a beautiful sea arch and the famous Fedora shipwreck in shallow water.

WHAT IF WE CANCEL?

Being a cautious outfitter means we do have to cancel sometimes, but if we ever cancel your Apostle Islands kayak tour or if the CDC restrictions make it impossible to travel, you receive 100% of your money back.

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.

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.

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.

Discounts

Military and Group Discounts


•  We offer group  discounts starting at 6 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 you can be one of the highlights of your visit to the Apostle Islands.
