Captain Peter was able to take us out last minute, the same day we wanted reservations. He even accommodated us on Madeline Island so we didn't have to take the ferry. Peter took us around from island to island, showing us everything from shipwrecks to...More

The best tour of the Apostle Islands! We saw shipwrecks, the sea caves, eagles, lighthouses, etc. Captain Pete was super nice, knowledgeable and told great stories. I highly recommend PMG...it was the best part of our vacation to Northern Wisconsin.

I would recommend that anyone that wants an up close tour of the apostle islands book with captain Pete. Not only can he get to other places the large tour lines can't, you don't have to be canned like sardines! We took a half day...More

Captain Pete was great from the very beginning. Yes there are tour boats and kayak tours that go out to Devil's Island, but Captain Pete's boat is the best way to go. Lake Superior can go wonky very quickly and I'd hate to be on...More

Hi there! I'm a photographer from Oklahoma and I'd like to book a sunrise or sunset tour with you August 9-13th 2017 to photograph the Caves. This is the first time visiting and I don't want to chance my camera in a kayak. There may be 3-4 other people in the group. What is your price and I understand times are dependent upon the weather. Im trusting you to take us to the most beautiful & interesting places. And the reviews I've read, say you are the best. Happy to support your independent business!!
