  • Kayaking was the highlight of our family trip to the Apostle Islands. The full day trip we took with Whitecap Kayak was amazing. . Our guide Josh made it interesting.  more »
  • Favorite part of visit to bayfield was the sea cave boat tour (3 hours), and dining at the Manypenny bistro...would go back for both. Hotels expensive here though!  more »
  • Enjoyed immensely the narrated section of the tour! The Captain fills those long sections between the islands with local legend and lore. Saw three eagles! For a three hour tour, the time passes quickly! Get there early to get on top, but remember, it's a long path out and back at top speed. Save time getting your hair just right that morning! Captain turns boat so everyone gets the important views so every seat is good. Great to take a tour that had new equipment!
  • The views are worth the effort! Definitely worth the visit! The hiking trail is boarded for a good portion, and after that the trail is still well defined. There are a few spots where there is a little more difficulty with navigating slopes and steep steps. I only walked about half of the total trail to where the sea caves are visible, I am looking forward to returning to hike the whole trail to the campsite at the end.
