Spent several days kayaking and camping with Wilderness Inquiry. Especially loved the sea caves and light house on Sand Island.
It is difficult to get a good view of the water and the islands. We did not realize the pine trees provided such a solid wall and they grow right to the water. There were a few places to catch a peak but not so much on a drive.

The Apostle Islands are part of Wisconsin, not Minnesota. located in Wisconsin's section of Lake Superior. You will need a Wisconsin fishing license to fish there. That said, it's a wonderful destination.
