We really lucked out with the weather. Rain was forecasted, but Ed felt confident we could get our tour in before it started to thunder. He kept us on task the entire time and hustled us from point A to point B. We ended our...More
I booked a day kayaking tour for my family and I on the lake with Ed and had a great time. We really lucked out with the weather because it was absolutely gorgeous the entire time. Ed also provided pretty thorough instruction on the proper...More
Our family of seven (kids ages 3,5,12,15 &15) went out with Ed to visit the caves on Madeline Island and had a memorable family adventure! We had a questionable forecast, but Ed looked primarily at wind speeds and directions that were most favorable for smooth...More

Laura unfortunately chose the wettest week of the summer. Everyone else had cancelled - we normally take 12 on the tour - but since they "were leaving the next day," and could not reschedule, I agreed to take the six of them kayaking. There was...More
The kayak tour through the sea caves was a highlight of our trip to the Apostle Islands! Chris, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable about the area and told great stories. They also did a nice job of making sure that our group stayed together. If...More
We loved our trip to the caves and cliff jumping! Our 2 kids (8 and 11) had a blast! Ed was so nice and very experienced. My 11 year wanted to try a single kayak on the way back from the caves so Ed switched...More
Our family of 5 enjoyed a day on Lake Superior. We met Ed and the rest (11 total in our group) at the Town Park. It took at least an hour to unload the lifejackets, get paddles, kayaks, and Ed teaches you how to paddle....More
We were looking for a fun activity with some exercise involved and we found it. We booked a half day (4hr) tour to the limestone caves with a leader. The kayaks were ready and gear was out when we arrived on the beach at 8AM....More
It was an amazing experience. We had a great time with friends. Edward is very interesting and nice person. He taught us how to work with pedals and showed us the most beautiful places of Madeline Island.
We took the early ferry to Madeline Island, as it gave us time to visit the town. We had no idea that our instructor was 80 years old. He was quite agile and was way faster than any of us. Wow! He is also quite...More

Our kayak tours are perfect for parents with you children. It is probably best for each parent to take a child in a double kayak. From Big State Park on Madeline Island we paddle to the caves and cliffs on Madeline. Take your cameras because it is very beautiful. We stop at a small beach for lunch midway through the tour and then proceed to the Lagoon at the Town Park, down the Lagoon and back to our starting point. It is also possible for parents with small children to stop early without paddling through the Lagoon. Please see our website for details.
