We took a 3.5 hour tour of the sea caves. It was rough and cold, but I would 100% do it again. Pete was an awesome driver in the conditions. I felt super safe the whole time. He wore a mask the whole time and had hand sanitizer available. He constantly asked if we were comfortable and offered blankets. The views were absolutely incredible. The Apostle Islands are so special and this is absolutely the way to see them.

We took a boat tour with PMG Charters and couldn't have been happier. We chose to tour the sea caves, which were awesome! Since the boat wasn't as big as the large tour boats, we were able to get into quite a few of the caves. Captain Pete was very personable, knowledgeable and went out of his way to make sure that we were satisfied with our trip. Booking the trip with his wife, Ashley, was also very easy, and she offered good advice on things to see before our boat trip.

What an awesome way to tour the Apostle Islands! Captain Pete was very friendly, informative, safety conscious, and a great pilot. He was amazing at maneuvering the boat in and out of the sea caves, nosing deep inside for an up-close view, something I thought could only be done with a kayak or canoe. Our 4-hour tour started from Little Sand Bay Campground, and took us to Raspberry Island to tour the lighthouse, around Bear Island, then Devils Island for a short hike to the lighthouse. The highlight of the tour began upon departure from Devils Island, whereupon the sea cave maneuvers commenced. In and out, frontwards, backwards, forward, in reverse, close enough to touch the walls and the ceilings. The awesome force of water, carving intricate shapes, columns, shelves, into the rocky shoreline. Just fabulous! I highly recommend PMG!

We scheduled the Mawikwe caves tour for 4, which included 2 adults, one teenager, and a 10 year old. We originally wanted to do the kayak tour so we could get closer to the caves (so we thought) but our youngest was too small so we did the boat tour with PMG. They were great about delaying due to weather so we could have better conditions for our tour. The web site and booking information had said we would leave from Cornucopia, but after going there we found out we would depart from Little Sand Bay Campground. It was an inconvenience but the trip made up for it. Pete was an amazing boat driver and went in many of the sea caves. We saw the kayakers going past them and except for one sea arch they went under I'm sure we were closer. Pete drove the boat into areas that we could not believe. We didn't have to paddle a long way to get there and saw much more in a shorter amount of time. All in all it was a great trip! Also, COVID related...Pete had a bottle of sanitizer on the boat and wore a mask for the trip which helped ease our concerns. We wore masks but they were not required.

This was definitely THE best way to see the caves. Captain Pete was fantastic - he not only gave great info but was amazing with his power boat. Going into the caves, shutting off the motor so you could really experience the caves and the sounds of the waves..... What a fantastic experience!
