• Customized Guided Kayaking Tours on Lake Superior     From the Apostle Islands to the Porcupine Mountains

    Not your ordinary guiding service

    Our unique approach to guiding kayaking trips sets us apart from other touring services: You tell us when and where you want to go! Plus, we don't overbook our guides. That means your tour is as leisurely, or as quick, as you like it to be. (We're not an "assembly line".)

    Well trained!

    Our guides carry some of the highest levels of certifications through the American Canoe Association of all the guide services in the Apostle Islands!
