Our family of four LOVED our experience with Apostle Islands Kayaks. And this was in no small measure because of the thoughtful and experienced skill of Ed Kale, our guide. This is an honest guy who has been doing this for years. He's good at it because he loves it and the region.

Despite an unexpected high wind and small craft warning that caught us out on the water, owner Ed and guide Kelsey did a great job of giving us a safe, fun-filled day that made up for the fact we couldn't make it to the sea caves. Kelsey took us through the lagoon for a calmer experience, sharing his love of... More

30 mins instruction. 1 hour to sea caves, very nice. Cliff jumping, paddling into caves, very nice. The way back was complicated by high winds at times paddling backwards. Took 1:30 to paddle back with great effort.

Ed provides an excellent instructional piece for the untrained kayaker. The 2 young adults with us had a fabulous time. Ed has a great manner with people, he knows his business, has good equipment, and is very reasonably priced.

Quick Background info: We are a family of 5 with 13 & 14 year old girls and a 7 year old boy. Madeline Island in general: I've found that most people that live on an island run on island time- if you can understand this, then you will love every business on Madeline. Tips: -Bring your lunch + lots of... More

We did the self guided tour on July 22 at 1:30 and it was a blast. You get a few hours to paddle out to see the caves at Big Bay State Park. I think 3 hours will be enough for most, as you will get tired by the end. Ed will teach you techniques on how to paddle your... More

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

Edward K, Owner at Apostle Islands Kayaks, responded to this review

I am glad that the customers enjoyed kayaking and the beauty of Lake Superior. We make it very clear on our website and during the reservation process, however, that customers are to "check in with us at our downtown location" by specific times, depending on which tour or rental activity they wish to participate in. Customers are then given specific... More
