- This easy sea cave tour travels to the Houghton Falls ice caves that are the very protected from wind and waves. We only go if the conditions are flat calm, if you are signed up and the conditions due not allow us to go, you will have the option of a full refund or rebooking to a later date. This tour does not have any open water crossings and all paddling is done right next to shore. The caves we visit are are excellent and on calm water. The open water ice cave season only lasts through December and there is no guarantee that it will last the entire month. There will likely be a time where Chequamegon Bay will ice over and then the wind will blow that ice out. When it is iced over we can not kayak, if the wind blows the ice out we are able to go again. Once January hits the ice will only continue to build and will not blow out until May, which means no open water ice cave kayaking in January.
