We had a large group do the full day trip. Brooks (Iceman) & Andrew (Slider) were our amazing guides. They really made our day a blast, especially for the kids. Wether they were giving us the history of the area, cracking jokes, or recounting their adventure experiences, there was never a dull moment. The scenery was timeless, and the kids... More

We booked a full day (6 hr.) Kayak tour of Pictured Rocks Lakeshore with Northern Waters Adventures and were not disappointed. From the beginning, the staff was very helpful and accommodating. I had never been in a kayak before and was a little apprehensive, but the owner Carl and our two guides, Brooks and Andrew, put my mind at ease.... More

The charter tour was wonderful. Captain gives a great educational description about the Pictured Rocks! The scenery is incredible.

I am an avid kayaker and discovered today that I can not fit into a tandem sea kayak! Boo! The kayaks need to be skinny to glide through the water, I get it (still sad though). Northern Waters was so nice about my predicament and showed me several kayaks to try, even offered alternative tours on inland lakes that can... More

Northern water adventures was fantastic! This was a very awesome experience and with some of the best views in America, it made it an excellent adventure. You can't experience these views of the pictured rocks from the tour boats. This is very up close and personal with nature. We had 3 guides for our group of 20 and they were... More

A group of friends and I went on this trip. We had a great time. It was easy to find, gear was all provided clean and well-maintained, and the outfitters were communicative. The guides were very responsive and made sure we were comfortable and engaged. They provided a lot of insights about what we were seeing. My only critique would... More

We did the day trip. To start the day we met at the shop in Munising & Carl explained the day & handed out life jackets, wet suits, dry sacks & other items as needed. We traveled to the beach where we met the guides & the kayaks were waiting. After intros & some instruction we were on our way.... More

Had an amazing experience. Very friendly staff from the receptionists to the owner. It was my first experience kayaking so I was a little scared but once I met the guides and saw genuine concern for their patrons I felt much better.

Indeed. What can I add to the other reviews? Can I rate this more then a 5? Is there a 5+? My wife, daughter and I had an unbelievable day on the water over Memorial Day Weekend. It was perfect. Carl and his crew took great care of us. The focus on safety was very evident as was the focus... More

Hands down the best kayak trip I have ever taken! Our guides were amazing! The knowledge that they have of the pictured rocks was awesome. We did the all day trip which was completely worth it. Our trip was delayed for a few hours due to the waves but, we still got to go and did the entire trip. The... More
