Whitecap is a small kayaking firm with great prices for what you get. Josh is the one who does most of the daily kayaking trip. We were three couples and Josh. We met at Meyers Beach which is about 20-25 minutes from Bayfield. We helped Josh carry our kayaks to the water. My wife and I kayaked about a mile or so to get to fabulous cliffs and caves and arches to Kayak. Everybody had double kayaks. It was a sunny day with temperatures around 55 degrees which was comfortable. Josh gave us half body wetsuits. His kayaks were excellent. We did not get wait at all. So much fun kayaking into caves and through arches and seeing the trees growing out of the sandstone. Highly recommend this trip I thought $75 was an excellent cost for this 3 hour kayak trip.

I booked a half day sea cave excursion with a friend last week. Weather was exceptional, the water was glassy-calm, and Josh was a great tour guide. Informative and fun, without being overbearing. All the gear we needed (kayak, paddles, spray skirts, wetsuits, even waterproof phone cases with neck straps) was provided, and in excellent condition. There was only one additional kayak on our tour, and we appreciated not feeling crowded, rushed, or herded like cattle. We took our time, exploring any nooks we wanted to. This adventure had been on my bucket list since 2013 when I had visited the same caves on foot when it was all frozen. It was just as beautiful in liquid form as I had imagined. I'd love to come back and book a full day trip some time!

Josh was relaxed and helpful, friendly and informative. We had a great time and would definitely do it again. Amazing scenery and beautiful water. The equipment was in good condition as well.

Josh was an amazing guide for my Husband and I, along with the others that were in our group. I am a beginner kayaker, and he gave me the easiest instructions to follow so that I was confident on the water. I want to buy my own kayak now. The views of the sea caves are unreal on their tours... seriously a must if you are going to the area.
