We kayaked the lagoons and went out to see the Red Cliffs along the mainland. Sea Caves were in our sights, but we were overruled by the windy water conditions.

This is a lot of work in the wind. We had a good time though. Everyone was friendly we didn't get to see the caves due to wind which is beyond anyone's control. The reality is here you will pay less for this place than anywhere else on the island. We did a guided tour and the guide helped us... More

The kayaking was fun. It was a work out but worth it. We did the self guided tour. My husband and I had both kayaked before and knew somewhat what to expect, but it was a more difficult paddle than we have done in the past. We had a tandem kayak which I wouldn't recommend, it was harder to manuever.... More

I had made reservations for my boyfriend and myself three weeks prior to our kayak trip. We originally planned to take out two single kayaks, as that was one of three options on their website. So we get there at 12:30pm, which is when the company told us to be there, but the employee didn't get there until well after... More

In general was a good time for my own family, a great workout with beautiful up close views of Madeline Island shoreline and sea caves. Would not suggest for those not used to physical activity. The young guides gave very brief instructions on how to use the paddles but once in the water didn't help with tips much. They told... More

The trip attractions were wonderful; however, Ed needs to work on his customer service. With no small talk, he very bluntly and loudly came up to a friend and asked her weight in front of the small crowd gathered in front of his home/company. He then told her that he had concerns that she would float in a kayak. That... More

The website does say trips/tours at 9:30 & 1:30 however we were told 11 am. Since we wanted a "no guide trip" and the weather/skies would be clearing that worked out great for us. Also I'm not a morning person and we had plans that evening, so the flexibility was good in our case. We've been to other islands, countries... More

I booked our kayak trip 3 weeks prior to our camping trip to Madeleine Island. The owner called me back & was very pleasant. He instructed my husband & I to check in at his office (a house) when we arrived on the island to get measurements (?) And to verify we planned to join the group the next day.... More

I absolutely expect a snarky response from Ed for this review, but I like to help others make the best decisions on what to do with their valuable vacation time. Let me start by saying that I think Madeline Island is one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited and that the trip I'm reviewing is our second trip... More

My husband and I booked our kayak adventure for early June, which was before their "busy" time of year and we were the only two on our "private" tour with Ed. We found him to be very knowledgeable and interesting, full of good stories of life on and off the island. He transported us from the location on Main Street... More
