We are the original kayak tour company conveniently located right in Bayfield, with 30+ years of safely running kayaking trips within the Apostle Islands. Trek and Trail’s mission is to provide safe, affordable, quality kayak outfitting, education, guide & retail services to all those seeking memorable outdoor experiences, while maintaining a high level of customer service and sense of commitment to the earth. Open minded, friendly, caring, safe, responsible, and simple are all words we think of daily as we carry out our jobs.


The grandeur of Lake Superior’s famed sandstone sea caves will prove unforgettable. Our sea cave tours (Half Day [Meyer’s Beach] Sea Caves, Full Day [Meyer’s Beach] Sea Caves and Sand Island Sea Caves) paddle through stone cathedrals and deep crevices. Trips leave daily. Inquire for departure times.

The facilities and equipment were top notch and interesting. Just seems like a good group of people coming together to provide a safe and great experience. I would trust them to provide a safe experience of Apostle Islands and to equip you well.

Get out and enjoy your vacation the way it was meant to be experienced—in a kayak on the mighty Lake Superior!
Trek & Trail’s professionally guided tours offer a rich natural experience. See the famous “sea caves”, beautiful sandstone cliffs, and unique rock formations such as “Honeymoon Rock”. Experience the “singing sands” on Stockton or tour one of the many historic lighthouses. How about a visit to an old fish camp, farmstead & orchard or brownstone quarry.
