We took a full day trip with northern waters. Our group of 5 had so much fun. The guides were amazing. Henry was the leader of the pack, he as fun to watch as he would try to squeeze between tight spaces and ride large waves. Kristen stayed in the middle of the group. She would give fun facts about...

We did the half-day tour, in which there was only me, my husband, and one other couple plus our guide Andy. The ride to the beach where we started was long, first travelling in a caravan to an out-of-the-way field to park our cars, then a 5-minute bus ride to the beach. I can understand why they do it this... More

Our group was 7 people across 3 generations - youngest were 9,11 & 13. The crew was professional and helpful. They were very engaging with the kids. When the youngest got a little worried, the guide told stories to distract and encourage him. He was soon paddling away. During lunch the crew talked through out the group and built sand... More

My family of 5 did the whole day kayak (all adults) and we had a beautiful day--water was so calm and sunny. Not too familiar with kayaks, I felt their website could have more info about kayaks and what you can access on the water in your kayak and what will be kept absolutely dry. There is a lot of...

We did the full day kayak tour. Our guide's name was Joe. It did take a bit to get out on the water so the time kayaking was shorter than we anticipated. But we had ideal weather and could go in and out of the caves as we pleased on the way up. Our guide was the perfect amount of... More

On our awesome UP 4th of July adventure, we showed up at their door for a spontaneous trip. We were late for the noon trip, too early for the sunset trip, so they made a special trip just for us. The owner was very helpful and so happy to accommodate us. One of the guides, Blaine, stopped in on his... More

If it wasn't for the sheer beauty of this experience, this would've been rated a Terrible disaster. But, because the Pictured Rocks and shipwreck are indeed spectacular, an average rating is the best I can muster. What point there was in making a reservation, I have no idea because they seem to have booked way too many people than they... More

This was incredible. Well worth the cost. Everything about this company, our guide and the trip was just right. We chose this company because they were polite and helpful on the phone instead of curt and pushy (competing company). When we arrived in Munising, we stopped in to talk to them and they not only helped us make a good... More

Awesome trip. Wanted to do this for 15 years. 10 year old daughter finally old enough to paddle. Did the full day trip. Ask the guide to point you to the sea caves at mosquito beach. Awesome adventure. Safety is very important to this company. It was the best day of the year for me. Do this trip! You may... More

My wife and I had a wonderful time on our half day tour with Henry and Blaine today. As others noted the time on the water is only a couple hours after commute to Miners beach and the safety info etc... But I understand this to be the standard with any tour of this type. The half day trip was... More
