I signed up for the full day kayak tour of the apostle sea caves during my trip to Bayfeild. It has always been on my list of things to do and I believe this is the best company to do it with. Unfortunately due to weather, we were unable to kayak the sea caves in the park but our guides... More

Hi Courtney, What a pleasure it was to read through your comments here and thank you so very much for writing in to Trip Advisor with this review. I particularly appreciate it because it is to a 'T' what we hope for as client response and flexibility when high wind and waves make the Sea Caves too dangerous to paddle... More

I'd been wanting to try my hand at kayaking, so this adventure was perfect; however, we weren't lucky enough to go out on a calm day. Our guides took us as far out as we could and we got close to the sea caves. Due to some high winds and waves, we had to turn back early. It was disappointing,... More

We greatly appreciate your comments, thank you for writing in. Our guides definitely do all they can to get trip guests out to the sea caves and your day sounds like a great example of a day when weather is 'iffy' and the guides carefully walk a line (paddle a line?!) between getting our trip guests out to see the...

We read many reviews before choosing LAI and they did not disappoint. Our guides, Leaf and Brian, were rock stars for sure. They were entertaining, knowledgeable & engaging. We were impressed by how much they really respected nature & clearly loved what they were doing. They respected other tour groups along the way, while still finding ways for us to... More

Fabulous! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your trip so much. Brian and Leaf are exemplary of all of our guiding staff (I'm going to brag here): Apostle Islands guides just do not get better. We've got an unparalleled depth of experience in our crew as reflected by your words and the experience you had out there with them. Thanks... More

My wife and I spent a delightful four days kayaking with Living Adventures in late August. The first day was a short kayak to Sand Island with a side expedition to explore the sea caves on the northeast side of the island and an evening hike to lighthouse on northeast tip for the sunset. The second day was about 16... More

The team at Living Adventures was professional, knowledgeable and kept everyone safe. At $110/person the trip was not inexpensive, particularly because the kayakers did a fair amount of the work carrying the kayaks down ~40 steps, cleaning the kayaks and then carrying them back up those steps and loading them back on the trailer. Staff were definitely helpful, but on... More

Hi Amylee, Thank you for your recommendation of your sea kayaking trip with us, we appreciate it! In our trip descriptions it can be challenging to realistically outline the physical expectations of the adventure in terms of effort and at the same time be welcoming and approachable to the range of people that come on our trips. Reviews like yours... More

We did a day trip with Living Adventure in August of this year. The day we picked ended up being over cast but that did not detract from the trip. Our guides were excellent. They knew the area well and shared lots of interesting information in addition to being very up beat. They also knew the water well and when... More

My partner booked a trip through Living Adventure so that we could kayak the sea caves and take photos of this great wonder. Living Adventure did not disappoint! We chose the half day trip (approximately 4 hours total, perfect for us) and were joined by 9 other people. This trip is geared towards beginner paddlers and was monitored very well... More

We signed up for half day kayaking from 8:30AM-1PM. The kayaking/sightseeing lasts about 2 hours. It takes about 20 minutes to get to the beach, then there is very informative instruction as to how to use the kayak. The Kayaks have to be taken down to the beach. After the kayaking is done imagine the reverse order, minus the instruction.... More

Hi Tristan, thank you for writing in and sharing your comments on your trip experience. We totally agree with what you found out; it is MUCH better to experience the Sea Caves on a full day format. You go somewhat farther both ways (out and back) and can truly absorb the beauty of the rocks, arches, cliffs and beaches with... More
