We drove from Chicago for the weekend just so we could kayak and it was well worth it. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and simply awesome! Safety is their number 1 priority and it shows. Go and enjoy.

My family of 6 (2 adults, 4 teenage kids) did a Day Kayak Trip with Northern Waters on July 4 to the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. It was a large group of about 22 since it was a holiday, but there was approx. 1 guide per every 6 people on our trip. Very friendly, helpful, informative staff, equipment was clean,... More

We came up to the Upper Peninsula for a late winter/early spring visit and we knew we were going to need cross country skis and snow shoes if we were going to be able to get anywhere so thank you Karl!!! He delivered skis, boots, poles and snow shoes right to our hotel and picked up the equipment from our... More

When i first visited Pictured Rocks I hiked the trails above and realized you have to be in a boat to get the really good photos of the cliffs walls and caves. So i went down to the Oshkosh airshow but returned on the same trip for the Northern Waters Kayak tour. The price is reasonable and the staff are... More

For those of you vising Pictured Rocks, kayaking is an exciting--and relatively low impact--way to do it. Moreover, the Northern Waters staff make it all the more worthwhile. They exceedingly friendly (even offering up restaurant recommendations), but thoroughly professional. They even took time during our paddle to point out a shipwreck clearly visible beneath the surface. One key note: you... More

This is a great way to see the picture rocks. The guides are helpful and friendly and full of information about the area. They did a superb job of keeping us safe while stil letting us explore independently. They kept things moving so there was not a large span of down time between our meeting at the outfitter and getting... More

I am a first time Kayak-er and it was a great experience. The guides were very knowledgeable and patient. I highly recommend them for a great tour of the Pictured Rocks, Caves, Arch and so much more. And to get experience on a Sea Kayak. There were three of us and we all went Solo!! They also had Tandems! It... More

Four of us came to Munising to see pictured rocks, we decided to go kayaking instead of taking the pictured rocks tour. I am so glad we did! Just to let you know the experience, the boat tour is like going on top of the empire state building in new york. Kayaking is like skydiving through the skyscrapers. There is... More

I was traved with a group of colleagues to Munising, MI and found the northern waters adventure. Seems that there are many companies and tours out there but the best reviews that I found online (and also the price), was this place. The place where we were staying also knew Carl who is the owner of that place. Just out... More

My husband and I have kayaks, but we wanted to have a guide take us along the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore this October. It was the most beautiful lakeshore we have ever seen - you really cannot miss it if you are in Munising or within a few hours radius! We were impressed with the day tour we received from... More
