We had a fantastic experience from start to finish. We decided to kayak spontaneously and were provided with water, sunscreen, and sunglasses. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Northern Waters to others.

Did the half day trip on labor day. The guides and staff were fun and knowledgeable. I'll be back for the full day trip for sure. The guides go above and beyond! The scenery is amazing! A must do in Munising.

They provide dry bags, lifejackets, transportation to the beach, and other things you might need that you forgot like sunscreen. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun and you get to go close enough to the rocks to touch them! Also a note about...More
