We had a great time as a family exploring the caves along the mainland of Lake Superior near Bayfield, WI. David, our guide, was amazing - patient, easy going, knowledgable, and extremely helpful! He patiently instructed my 3 teens and allowed them to explore safely each and every cave they could to their hearts' content. He didn't rush us along, provided a delicious & leisurely picnic lunch, and even let us spend some extra time in the wet suits so we could swim a bit in the cold water. As a company, Whitecap Kayak was wonderful to deal with: great communication, easy reservations and waiver protocols, and I appreciated the small groups, which allowed just our family of five to paddle together.

Fantastic trip! Our guides Josh and Claire were amazing and made sure we were comfortable and safe at all times. The lighthouse tours, food and driftwood campfire were all highlights. Highly recommended!

My family had a wonderful time kayak camping the National Lakeshore. 3 days/2 nights .. the perfect amount of time. We visited 4 islands and 2 of the lighthouses. Our Guides Clare and Sophia were fabulous. The food was wonderful (cooked over campfire). It was a fun and unique way to see the park.

We had an outstanding half day trip with Josh as our guide. I had 3 teens with me. There were a variety of ages and abilities in the group of 6; Josh engaged with everyone. He was knowledgeable, safe and a great story-teller. We took a route to the caves near Meyers Beach. The tour met at 8 and we had a gorgeous morning. The scenery was majestic. I would love to explore more! This is a must do to see the caves up close and appreciate them in their glory.

Kayaking was the #1 highlight of our family vacation to Bayfield. I found Whitecap through the various reviews such as this one stating they offer a personalized kayaking service with phenomenal guides for those with little or no experience. Our guide Josh was no exception. What a fun day we had on Lake Superior kayaking with Josh through the sea caves and along the amazing shoreline of the Apostle Islands! We did the full day tour with lunch. It was funny Josh forgot the utensils. We didn’t mind cause he provided us with some extra entertainment by demonstrating different types of kayak rolls underwater! It was an incredibly memorable day. It was just Josh and the four of us. So personalized. If you want the best personal kayaking guide service then we recommend Whitecap Kayak.
