Half Day Sea Caves Paddle
Established in 1970 the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore encompasses over 700 square miles and 21 islands on the south shore of Lake Superior. The sandstone cliffs and shoreline have been sculpted by waves, wind, and ice to form the many caves, re-entrants and nooks found along the shoreline.
Kayak through one of the highlights of this paddling destination and explore the caves of Apostle Island National Lakeshore with an experienced guide. Our Apostle Islands kayaking trips focus on small groups and giving you the best experience possible.
We launch from Meyers Beach in Bayfield, Wisconsin. Start with a short lesson or review before leaving for a 2.5 hour paddle along the shoreline to enjoy the natural beauty of the park and caves.

Meyers Rd, Bayfield, WI 54814
There is a $5 self service park fee as you come into the parking lot.
Typically we will wear wet suits depending on the water temperature so bring shorts, tights or a swimsuit to wear underneath them. All the gear and equipment needed is provided, sunglasses as well as a water bottle are suggested. Tandem kayaks are used for stability. We cater toward beginners! Trip sizes are kept small (2-6) for a personalized experience.
Contact us for groups larger than 6. We ask that paddlers are at least 100 lbs and/or 12 years old. In our experience it starts to become difficult to accommodate at about 270 lbs or above as it is hard to maintain stability and balance in the kayak but contact us for more information or body types.
SCHEDULE YOUR SEA CAVES KAYAK TRIP
What do I wear?Typically we will wear wetsuits so shorts, tights, swimsuit or something similar is best. Bring a layer as it can sometimes be cooler on the water. Bring a dry bag or ziplock bag if you plan to bring a phone for photos.
Where do we go?On half day trips we will be paddling the "Mainland Sea Caves" area in the park. This four mile out and back shoreline paddle launches and lands at Meyers Beach.
Do you allow dogs?Sorry, due to limited space in the kayaks we are unable to allow dogs.
What about bad weather?If we are not able to go out due to weather or if you do not think it would be a good experience (due to rain, cold, etc.) you have the option to either reschedule or have a full refund. Lake Superior is notorious for it's quickly changing weather conditions, forecasts often change dramaticaly up until your trip departure. We will do everything we can to get you out on the water safely! We ask for flexibilty in situations where weather and other events are out of our control.
Is there an age or weight limit?We ask that paddlers are at least 100 lbs and/or 12 years old. In our experience it starts to become difficult to accommodate at about 270 lbs or above as it is hard to maintain stability and balance in the kayak but contact us for more information or body types.
