Great safety course. Great, super fast kayaks, nice service. Wonderful views and unforgettable experience. The weather was awesome. Be prepared for mosquitoes on the islands. We were kayaking as much as possible to avoid mosquito biting.

We went up the middle of September without a lot of advanced information about the area. As it turned out the timing was perfect -- after the tourist season and before apple fest. We stayed at the Bayfield Inn which was a perfect location. Everything...More
