Devils Island Rendezvous – $865

Our most advanced trip

6 days, 5 nights

This six-day journey winds through the Apostle Islands while aiming for the Lakeshore’s most prized destination: the Devils Island sea caves. Stops along the way may include sandy beaches, lagoons, lighthouses, shipwrecks, quarries, a fish camp, and so much more. Multiple open water crossings will provide ample opportunities to sharpen paddling abilities.

All guided trips use and include tandem and triple sea kayaks for safety.

Trip Policies:

“Because of Lake Superior’s power and unpredictability, the National Park Service does NOT recommend the use of small open boats, canoes, open cockpit or sit-upon kayaks, and paddleboards for travel between islands or to the sea caves. A sea kayak is the recommended kayak that should be used in the Apostle Islands.”
