This sea cave tour is specifically designed to be easy for everyone, while paddlding in some very cool sea caves an in an area without crowds. Houghton point is home to the Chequamegon layer of sandstone with a few intricate sea caves with impressive iron banding. This tour launches from Washburn, Wi and follows closely to shore in shallow water without any open water crossings. This is an excellent opportunity to see the sea caves without having to paddle many miles to get to them. The sea caves start 1/2 mile into the tour and continue for another 1.5 miles. Houghton Point is much more protected from wind and waves than Meyers Beach or Romans Point and this tour is usually paddled in calm conditions. All these things help to make this an appropriate sea cave tour for people with children or anyone looking for an easy and relaxing paddle with some beautiful sea caves.
