      About this trip

      Come on up to the Northwoods in the summertime and have a fun weekend adventure on the water with a group of like-minded women on our Wisconsin Women’s Apostle Islands Kayaking Weekend.


      The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore is a U.S. national lakeshore consisting of 21 islands and about 70,000 acres of shoreline. It is known for its collection of historic lighthouses, sandstone sea caves, a few old-growth remnant forests, and cultural history. For us, it is the perfect playground for adventure and exploration.


      On our Wisconsin Women’s Apostle Islands Kayaking Weekend our team will introduce participants to sea kayaking on beautiful Lake Superior. We will spend a lot of time on the water exploring both mainland shoreline and have a full day adventure out to Sand Island. Topside, we will walk on forest trails, visit a nearby orchard, and finish the adventure with a boat cruise of the Apostle Islands.

      The trip is open to women ages 18 and older. Anyone in good health, and who is moderately active can enjoy the activities listed on the itinerary.   No previous kayaking experience is necessary. Participants must be able to swim, and be ok with paddling across open water.

      "I just got home from Apostle Island kayak with Tim. What an awesome experience. As you know,  Tim is the most amazing guide!! I can't say enough about him.  The trip exceeded my expectations from the get go. Amazing accommodations.  Great group of women. But Tim was exceptional.  He kept our safety a priority, great personality,  obviously super fit and knowledgeable. I never doubted him for a minute.

      An amazing adventure, more than I anticipated! Kelly and Pepe are a great team with excellent skills and knowledge. Made lifelong friendships, enjoyed delicious foods and explored primary and secondary rainforests, kayaked mangroves, zipped through the treetops while the monkeys entertained! Thank you Green Edventures! I am looking forward to our next Edventure!

      The trip to Baja Sur was a lot of fun. I went as a single but never felt I wasn't part of the group. We didn't see Whale Sharks, sadly, but had so much fun with Sea Lions and Grey Whales. Great trip, great food (thank you Anna!), great sights, and great fun.

      I had the most remarkable week on a Women’s Adventure Tour in the Baja Sur, Mexico with Green Edventures. Every day was filled with adventures from close encounters to Grey whales to snorkelling with sea lions. The campsite was on a stunning uninhabited beach with gorgeous sunsets. Tara, the guides and staff really looked after us like family and did everything in their power to make this trip memorable for us. I am already planning my second adventure with Green Edventures!

      A fantastic experience in every way! Jam packed with adventures and activities and all carefully thought through and organized. Our trip leader and our local guide were beyond exceptional.

      I went on an amazing trip with Tara to Baja, Mexico in 2020. This was a dream trip for me being a wildlife lover. It was incredible to be able to swim with whale sharks and sea lions and get up close with gray whales. Camping on the beach was amazing. We had a great group of women and everyone vibed well and all of the tour guides including Tara, Alex and Chabello were so fun, friendly and helpful every step of the way. The food was great at the campsite and at the restaurants we got to try. When our trip plans initially got derailed waiting on a negative Covid test and we had to get a different flight, Tara did everything in her power to accommodate us and make sure we got to enjoy every part of the trip, including setting us up with another whale shark swimming tour after we had missed the initial one with the group, and she spent time waiting for us to finish before leaving for the airport. I definitely recommend Green Edventures, especially the Baja Mexico trip!

      I just returned from the Wisconsin Women's Tour and couldn't have asked for a better trip! For me, the amount and type of activity were perfect. Who know there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?
