Everyone at the shop was great, gave great instructions and where you needed to be. Help you get the clothing you need and off you went. Our Kayaking trip was amazing! Perfect day for it, calm water, and a great group. Let you get up close and allowed for photo time. I would use this company again for sure.

We really enjoyed our paddle trip to the Apostle Islands sea caves with Trek and Trail. They've been doing it quite a while so I'm not surprised that they got it pretty well figured out. Our guides seemed well trained, safety conscious, and knowledgeable. They were also friendly and enthusiastic. We got to paddle into and under some tight formations... More

Ali was our guide and we had a mercifully small group of six. Ali was a great instructor and we had such a great time!!! I can't say enough wonderful things. Her enthusiasm was contagious!

Located right across from the ferry station that takes you to the Madeline Island. Their day trip to the sea caves is a must bucket list item. (Shout out to Emily our guide). We did the day trip and to see the sea caves, nature, go into the caves and through the arches was so very special. A shore lunch... More

We absolutely loved our half day kayaking tour of the sea caves. The guides were fantastic and we felt well equipped for the adventure! If you are in the area we strongly encourage you to check them out!

As a first time kayaker, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. From the time I booked all the way through the end of the tour, I was informed with the most thorough and complete directions, instructions, and exactly what to expect.

We did the half day kayaking tour of the sea caves that left from Meyers Beach. Our two guides, Ali and Emily were fantastic. Very knowledgeable and friendly. It also felt like a very good value considering how much time we spent on the lake and the small group.

We did the full-day sea kayak tour. I was a little apprehensive because I'd had a poor experience with Apostle Islands Kayaks in the past. Trek and Trail could not have been more different! The tour with Trek and Trail was definitely worth the ferry ride over if you are staying on Madeline Island. The level of professionalism, friendliness, preparedness,... More

So many things were just wrong, I don't know where to start. First, I am a very experienced kayaker. I know what is best practice and what is not. My first reason for giving a low rating to Trek & Trail is the improper and cheap PFD's we were issued. What we were given were suitable for use with a... More

Rob R, Owner at Trek & Trail, responded to this review

It sounds like, for whatever reason, you did not have a good time and I don't think the PFD is truly the cause of your poor review. The PFDs are type III and are perfectly suited for kayaking. It would be helpful if you would contact us to discuss what went wrong on your trip. More
