We took a group of teenage youth up there. All I've heard from them since we've been back is that this was the best campout they've ever been on!!! I've been camping monthly with this group for over 6 years, so that is quite a compliment! The staff was so friendly, fun, knowledgeable, and patient with our crazy group. The... More

We tried to get into Lost Creek to see the water fall but it was closed. We had driven quite a while so didn't want to drive back to our hotel. Luckily, we drove past this place and stopped. We just missed a tour to the sea caves and were not wanting to wait around for the next tour. The... More

We had a terrific time and loved the beautiful sea caves! We didn't have any prior kayaking experience and now we love it. Kevin and John did an awesome job as our guides! Highly recommend if you are in the area.

We booked a full-day trip to kayak the sea caves near Bayfield, WI. There were 7 of us in our party. The guides were excellent. Some in our group were not as experienced as other and they did a wonderful job of giving instructions and keeping everyone happy. The sea caves are incredible and a must see. They had a... More

We took a family of 6 on a kayak sea cave tour on July 7th. Weather was great, so that helps, but the guides were friendly, fun, instructive and got us on the water after ensuring a safe trip. I feel we got our money's worth, as we were invited to go through the caves a second time on the... More

We thought the guides were good and the trip was too. We really enjoyed it but half of our group had never been around water before, which slowed our trip down tons. We had to constantly stop and wait for half of the group to catch up or get back on track. They should break the group in smaller units... More

Thank you for your comments. You are spot on; about 50% of our guests have never kayaked before. To be fair to the slow paddlers, some of our beginner groups are actually really fast paddlers, while some experienced groups go slow. Being new to it isn't really a factor. Some people are stronger, or just pick it up quicker. You... More

We just returned from a sea kayaking trip with Lost Creek. Lost Creek is a small but colorful Sea Kayaking service located in tiny Cornucopia, Wisconsin. It's located on the southern shore of Lake Superior and an interesting area to explore. Lost Creek offers a variety of interesting trips though out the Apostle islands and Sea Caves. Trips are available... More

We had a great trip out to the sea caves on some rough water. Thanks to our guides John and Will we felt comfortable in the kayak. Because of the rough sea we could not get too close to the sea caves on the way out, but coming back we were able to paddle through one of the larger sea... More

We made several phone calls & stopped in a few times to find the best kayaking option for us (young senior citizens). We have kayaked inland lakes but never Lake Superior. In the end we went with a rental of a tandem sea kayak for $20 per hour (?) and $5 per person for wetsuits. The store is just over... More

Dear Travelgal, Thank you for your review. I agree the paddle from our beach to Romans Point and Lost Creek is great and super pretty. Just FYI to everyone, we use our sit on top kayaks for this type of rental, which are very stable and give your legs a tan :-) but to clarify they are only $20 for... More

A complete adventure, well suited to beginner thru experienced seekers. Lost Creek carries a full range of gear, and will work with you to include personal favorites. Our guide, Rob, brought us well inside the wave-forged caves and fissures to touch sheer rock walls and improbable grottos. Sharing the area geography, we saw the history appreciated these strange watery arches... More
