Firesides are free and open to anyone! All adventures start at 1pm and last for about an hour. No reservation needed!

Apostle Islands: Inner Island Tour

Our June Inner Islands Tour will be more demanding with total mileage of around 60 miles and moving camp each day. Since we're exploring further away from shore there is higher potential for rougher water.

August 10, 2020

Apostle Islands Cliffs, Caves, and Lighthouses Tour

 Our August Cliffs and Caves Tour is a casual adventure. Total mileage will range 20-30 miles for the week. We will only move camp 2 times so there will be more time spent in camp and exploring the islands.
