I had a great trip in the evening. Henry and the other guides were very cool and knowledgeable. I wish I could have done the full day trip.

Great experience! Henry and the others were very knowledgeable and friendly! Our tour was scheduled for 9:00 am, but was moved to 3:00 pm due to questionable weather/waves. I really appreciated their commitment to the safety of all involved. Thanks for a beautiful afternoon!

Patty and El were truly excellent guides! They both shared a lot of interesting insights about the landscape, and were highly professional, friendly, and fun. The gear provided by Northern Waters was great, and their tandem sea kayaks were perfect for paddling on Lake Superior....More

The guides are knowledgable and friendly; the equipment they provide is top-notch (kayaks, life jackets, paddles, spray skirts). They had sunscreen, bug spray, and water for us to use (not to buy). They also loaned dry bags, one per party, at no cost and provided...More
