If you find yourself in northern Wisconsin, you have to take a kayak trip/sea caves tour. It's not to be missed. The day of my group's tour, the seas were angry and we were only able to paddle through one of the caves. The waves were hitting hard and high and it was dangerous. That said, our guides were great.... More

We took advantage of one of the last good days of the season to kayak on Lake Superior. We had read reviews of a couple different companies and are so happy we chose Living Adventures. We made a last minute decision and were in and out of phone service until the morning of the trip. Even still, Gail was very... More

We were a group of 5 that were hoping to kayak around the Sea Caves but the weather was against us even though it was a beautiful day. The waves were 3-5 feet high in that area so we had to resort to Plan B.....Our guides (Mike and Eliana) took us to calmer waters were we paddled through a lagoon... More

I took part in a 3 day, 2 night kayak trip with Living Adventures out of Bayfield in late August. I learned a lot and found out I have a lot to learn if I am going to get serious about kayaking, especially on Lake Superior. The trip I took is called Beaches, Waves & Caves. The first day you...

We had a family group of 5 for a full-day trip to the Sea Caves in late August. It is a roll of the dice for weather on Lake Superior but we lucked out and had sunny, calm day. Guides Ebry and Charlie did a terrific job. They have great knowledge, skill, and are safety conscious. The operation is first... More

Because people often travel from a far to join us for a sea kayaking adventure our commitment is to try our very best to get the groups out paddling on any given day. Weather on Lake Superior can be very fickle and change rapidly; often times if we wait out a storm front there is great weather on the other... More

Giving them five stars because they were really great in all ways. However, do heed their website warning that when weather doesn't allow for safe paddling, the planned trip will be altered. I was pumped to see the sea caves, but strong NW winds created impossible and unsafe paddling conditions. Instead, we paddled through a small estuary where we saw... More

Love your great attitude! Thank you so much for the fair assessment of the day and for supporting the decisions made by our company to offer the best possible adventure outcome. For everyone signing up on the Sea Caves Day Trips we clearly state our weather/cancellation policy; "refunds for sure if we cancel due to unsafe weather; but before we... More

Took the 3-day island tour (Beaches, Waves and Caves) -- just one big problem: We started from a boat launch away from the outfitters main office, so the kayaks were brought by trailer. This did not allow any opportunity for making sure the kayaks were a good fit for the participants, Our guide, who was great, struggled for the entire... More

Our reviews are consistently 5 star and have come in so frequently for this 2014 summer season we have not yet replied to any of them! But John's review merits a reply and we wanted to acknowledge his comments. In all of our years we have never had a problem like this come up where the guide could not find... More
