The owner of the Falling Rock Cafe' (another great place) referred us to Carl Hansen and Northern Waters. When I called Carl to set up our trip, he not only took care of answering any questions I had about our trip with him, but he also took the time to recommend hiking trails and put-ins for our recreational kayaks. The day of our trip (moved back 1 day due to water conditions - communicated ahead of time), we were fitted with a tandem kayak that was comfortable for my 6'4" husband and me and given spray skirts, paddles, PFDs, dry bags and lunch bags to use. Our trip leader, Alex, was personable, helpful and knew the area. We had beautiful weather, paddled through arches and caves, beached on a rock ledge for lunch, and even saw a shipwreck under the clear water! At one point after lunch, we had the opportunity to swim in Lake Superior. Alex led the way to a spot where there was a rock cave with a ledge perfect for jumping in. I sort of felt sorry for the folks who chose the ferry trip - we waved to them as they passed and resumed our fun :) The day trip was about 9 miles. It gave us the opportunity to really see the rocks up close and to take some awesome pictures. I would highly recommend Northern Waters Adventures!
