We did the full day tour on Thursday, August 27th and had an absolutely amazing time. The guides were incredible and so was Annie (the woman who did a wonderful job rescheduling everyone after 3 days of cancellations due to extreme weather)! The tour was absolutely beautiful. The staff were all knowledgeable and extremely helpful. WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK... More

Mom and teen son took the sunset kayak trip. We thankfully got a tandem, because the water/waves were very rough on the way back (like 1 foot swells!!). Guides were great-- Jake and Joe (aka Ghost Rider and Goose). Northern Waters provided: water proof bags (we didn't need it), extra Ziploc for phones, they did have extra old water shoes... More

If you are considering Northern Waters vs. Paddling MI (Uncle Ducky's) in Munising, MI, I would highly encourage you to choose Northern Waters. The staff was more friendly on the phone and were patient to answer many questions. Our guide Karl, was experienced, enthusiastic and encouraging. But the biggest reason is that you will get much more personal attention at... More

We went out on the half day tour with our sons, ages 16 and 13. Our tour guide, Joe, was super. None of us had ever kayaked before and we were all surprised by how easy it was. This will be an experience we'll talk about forever. We also took the boat tour in the afternoon. We are glad we... More

My husband, my 10 yr. old son and myself did the 1:00 pm tour and it was great. Lake Superior can be very intimidating and on the day we kayaked, there was a lot of ferry boat traffic kicking up some waves. Brooks and Henry did a wonderful job explaining what to do, the layout of the kayak and how... More

This was are 11 year old twin grand daughters first trip out onto Lake Superior and they were simply thrilled. This was a safe, professional, customer... More

Nothing better than kayaking the Pictured Rocks up close! Would recommend this to all who are able. The guides were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We went on the sunset trip and loved every second of it. You do not need to be an experienced kayaker. Our guides, Kenny and Joe, were great.

My family and I truly enjoyed this adventure. There were seven of us that had never kayaked before and our tour guides were very helpful and patient. This company is very professional and knowledgeable and there was never a moment that I felt unsafe or rushed on this tour. I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone! The sights were...

Great team both in the office and on the lake. They were all so accommodating and made our family kayaking a wonderful experience. The guides were fun for both parents and teenagers and had great history and explanations of the sights and area. The owners helped us make sure we had everything we needed to have a great time, despite... More

Booked the 9am 1/2 day kayak trip. Orientation at Northern Waters began at 9:30, departed for Miners beach well after 10am (drive your own car, no shuttle or bus provided), more orientation and instruction at Miners beach. 2 1/2 hours after the start of the 'trip' we actually entered the water. The 1/2 trip out and back did not include... More
