We can’t wait to get you on the water this season!
Trek and Trail is the original sea kayaking tour company offering trips in the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore and is conveniently located right in beautiful Bayfield, WI. We have spent over 30 years safely introducing visitors to the world of sea kayaking and to the natural wonders of the Apostle Islands, the Meyers Beach Sea Caves, and the Bayfield peninsula’s shoreline.
SEA CAVES! SEA CAVES! SEA CAVES!
The Meyers Beach Sea Caves are one of the most popular kayaking destinations in all of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. We offer multiple kayaking tour options to these awe-inspiring sea caves each day! In addition, Sand Island’s intertwined, winding sea caves are not to be overlooked. We launch from Little Sand Bay to visit Sand Island and its caves every day. Learn more below.
AN ISLAND GETAWAY IN ONE DAY
The Apostle Islands are some of Wisconsin’s most precious jewels. Due to distance, most of the islands require a multi-day itinerary to access by kayak. However, Sand Island and Basswood Island are both accessible in a day and make for wonderful day trips. We offer trips to each of these islands daily. Learn more below!
HIGHLIGHTS ALONG THE BAYFIELD PENINSULA
If you’re looking for a less paddle-intensive experience, we have a few tours for you! These tours take it slow and stay close to the shoreline. Explore a shipwreck and sandstone cliffs along Bayfield’s waterfront or the iconic Bark Bay Slough State Natural Area’s abundant wildlife with us. Learn more below!
LET’S GO KAYAK CAMPING
Kayak camping in the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore should be on every adventurer’s bucket list. With campsites on 18 of the 21 islands within the Lakeshore, there is an overwhelming amount to see and do. Allow us to plan your route, hit the highlights, and cook all of the meals for you. We offer guided overnight tours ranging from 2 to 7 days. Learn more below!
One of the most important tools that a sea kayaker can possess is the ability to rescue oneself. We pride ourselves on offering thorough safety instruction to sea kayakers at all skill levels. Passing our 3 hour Basic Safety Course is a pre-requisite for renting a sea kayak for your self-guided trip of any length. Learn more below.

Commitment to Safety
With one of the world’s largest lakes as our day to day office, we are committed to continuous rescue and safety development both on and off the water. Each spring (and weekly training meetings) our guides and mentors work through ACA Level 1-3 and WFA certification to keep our adventures just as safe as they are fun.
