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.

"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. I will definitely look for him to be my guide in the future.
