Explore Lake Superior’s Sea Caves
Accessible only by water, these famous caverns along the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore are a playground of unique geographic wonder!
Join us as we leave from the tip of the Bayfield Peninsula to launch our kayaks on Lake Superior. After a short paddle, we’ll explore the towering sandstone cliffs and water-worn caves that extend for a few miles along the shoreline.
We’ll enjoy lunch along the shore, and view the caves again on our return.
What to expect
We assume everyone is a beginner. We’ll teach, train and guide you throughout the trip — but also respect the experiences you come with.
Participants should be able to:
1. Understand basic instructions
2. Manage personal care and mobility
3. Enter and exit the kayak. You should be able to maintain a balanced upright position while seated.
4. Be comfortable in water and able to float in an upright position with a life jacket.
Where we usually meet
When paddling the Sea Caves, it’s usually easiest to meet at Meyer’s Beach. (Please note that there is a small fee for parking here.)
Coming from US2 near Ashland Wisconsin, take Hwy 13 (only heads north). Go to Washburn and turn left onto C going to Cornucopia. Turn right (east) on Hwy 13. Travel for about 5 miles until you reach Meyer’s Beach Road. (There’s a decent sign pointing the way.)
Alternatively, you can just keep going on Hwy 13 through Bayfield, which will bring you to the same spot from the opposite direction.
