Why Choose Us


Sea kayaking got its start in the Apostle Islands back in the late 80′s and we’ve been here since then training and shaping curriculum that has become the backbone of Lake Superior safety protocols. Hundreds of hours and miles under our kayaks in the Islands help us to offer not only safe trips; but trips that take you to the best (and our favorite) beaches, forests, sea caves and secret spots.

Why Choose UsAs the popularity of the sport has grown, we have seen the number of commercial outfitters offering trips here increase as well; from reputable companies that we support to other ‘meet you in the parking lot’ sorts that we would encourage you away from.

Our standards for training and certification are unequaled by other Apostle Islands outfitters: our guides are American Canoe Associated (ACA) Instructors and at a minimum have CPR/First Aid certifications and in most cases are certified Wilderness First Responders. Our staff training is rigorous and lead by some of the best sea kayak trainers in the country.

Why Choose UsOne of our original investors returned to the property after several seasons away and commented, “well, it’s become a beautiful campus, hasn’t it?”. Owning our facility and lakeshore acreage on Buffalo Bay helps us preserve an intimate, wilderness feel to the overall customer experience; just being here is a great way to start your day.

From the kayaks to accessory gear to the pots and pans on the trail, our equipment is top of the line and maintained in excellent shape by our field operations staff. Our office reservation people are knowledgeable, friendly and will help guide you towards the best trip for you, your friends and family.

We have a fully licensed in-house kitchen and safety trained food team that provide fantastic fare on the trail. Menus include items such as local fresh white fish, seasonal berries and fruits, sourdough bread from our local bakery, fresh ground coffee and excellent tea.

Professionalism, quality and courtesy are landmarks of an experience with Living Adventure. Excellent customer service is at the forefront of our goals. We invite you to join us this summer and see why we were voted, ‘Best Tour Company in the Central Division’.
