Apostle Islands Sea Caves Kayaking

HALF DAY TRIP

Half Day Sea Caves Paddle

Half Day Sea Caves Paddle 1024 622 Josh Clark

Kayak through one of the highlights of this paddling destination and explore the Apostle Islands Sea Caves with an experienced guide.

Join us as we leave from the tip of the Bayfield Peninsula to launch our kayaks on Lake Superior and explore the Apostle Islands Sea Caves.   After a short paddle, we’ll explore the towering sandstone cliffs and water-worn caves that extend for a few miles along the shoreline.

About 2.5 hours long.

We cater toward beginners! Group sizes are kept small (2-6) for a personalized experience.

All the gear and equipment needed is provided, bring some sunglasses as well as a water bottle.

Typically we will wear wetsuits depending on the water temperature so bring shorts, tights or a swimsuit to wear underneath them.

Josh was an excellent kayak and tour guide! He knows a lot about the area. His equipment is top quality. All of us felt safe and he showed us some tips to help us on our adventure.He took us to some cool spots around the apostle islands sea caves and let us go in and out and get plenty of awesome pictures. If we ever make the trip up to the islands again we will definitely see if he is available.
