About Woods & Waters
Woods & Waters has been taking people like you on nature-filled adventures since 2002. Our fun and informative guided tours in the Les Cheneaux Islands, the Eastern UP, and Isle Royale National Park will immerse your senses with the rustic and still wild northern Great Lakes. Whether you just want a half day to explore our cedar shores and catch a sunset, or full five days of quality time off the grid, our team of trained guides will be with you for every dip of the paddle or step along the trail. Our outdoor activities include kayaking, hiking, biking, and even caving — something for everyone! We believe that everyone has the most fun when they’re in the middle of nature, so come have an adventure with us. We also rental Rocky Mountain fat tire, mountain, and gravel bikes, kayaks (sea and sit-on-top), SUPs, and snowshoes. And our quaint retail shop can outfit many adventures or help you discover a unique gift.

Great trip with a small group (4 included guide). Had the option to change the day of the trip, per recommendation of our guide Sue, as the weather forecast on our scheduled day was for high winds.

Thanks Bill for taking the time to let others know how your trip was. I'm so glad I was able to take you out through Bosley Channel and around Little LaSalle! Look forward to seeing you again when you cross the bridge to get even further North!

Thanks for letting us know that we achieved our goal of delivering an "ultimate 'hands-off' vacation" to our guests on this adventure. We appreciate hearing from you and helping others know by writing a review that Isle Royale is indeed a National Park to not miss! Maybe we will see you again on a "do-over."
