Apostle Islands Camping Trips

Overnight Kayaking Trips

A “playground” for historians, paddling-enthusiasts, and beach-lovers alike! These Apostle Island kayak trips boast of old brownstone lighthouses, remote sandy beaches, and plenty of islands to explore! This will be an Apostle Islands kayaking trip you will never forget.

Kayak and camp the Apostle Islands with us! This is one of the most popular sea kayak destinations of the world! Camp on islands, explore sandstone sea caves, hike trails, visit former brownstone quarries, lighthouses, and former fishing camps. There are numerous options available depending on the size, interests, and ambitions of your group. We’ll often customize the trip to fit what works best for you, or if you’re on your own, we’ll try to find you a group.  


Even if your group is only 2, we’ll often set something up to fit your schedule & goals. If other like-minded people later desire the same trip, & same time, we’ll often add them. We find various people coming together on our trips creates a relational environment that enriches the experience!


Typically, after paddling instructions and packing our kayaks, we’ll leave from Little Sand Bay and paddle 2 hours to Sand Island. This wonderful island has nice campsites with sandy beaches, great sea caves, a cool lighthouse that often offers tours, and some nice hiking. Depending on the length of the trip, we’ll visit and stay on York or Oak, with a visit to Raspberry. Trips longer than 2-3 days can be planned to other more distant islands.

Typically Tandem Kayaks are used as they tend to be more stable and a bit faster.  Solo kayaks are an option, however, you’ll need to discuss this with your guide ahead of time.
