Once again, we are the recipient of Sea Kayaker Magazine's prestigious Readers Choice Award for 'Best Tour Company/Central Division'; an area that encompasses the Great Lakes and Midwest. This is a write-in award where people who have traveled with your company take the time and effort to say, "These guys are the Best!"
As a commercial outfitter, Living Adventure is the one with the longest standing collective experience paddling and guiding in the Apostle Islands. Lake Superior is 'not just another Lake up north" and there are criteria for your experience not to be compromised.
We've been here since the late 80's training and shaping curriculum that has become the backbone of Lake Superior safety protocols. Hundreds of hours and miles under our kayaks in these beautiful Islands help offer not only safe trips; but trips that take you to our favorite beaches, forests, sea caves and secret spots.
Our guides are American Canoe Associated (ACA) Instructors and at a minimum have CPR/First Aid and in most cases Wilderness First Responder certifications. Our staff training is rigorous and is lead by some of the best sea kayak trainers in the country.
The rest of the Living Adventure staff are equally important to your overall experience. We have a fully licensed in-house kitchen and food team that provide fantastic fresh food on the trail. Our equipment is top of the line and kept in excellent shape by our field operations staff. Our office reservation people are knowledgeable and friendly and will guide you towards the best trip for you, your friends and family.
We own our facility and beautiful lakeshore acreage on Buffalo Bay. The enchantment begins the moment you turn into the driveway and truly just being here is part of your Apostle Islands experience. After parking you head for the office and check-in area with views of Basswood Island across the channel. Bathrooms and cedar lined changing rooms are just down the hall. Take a stroll through the gardens and sculptures while you wait for your trip to begin.
Professionalism, quality and courtesy are landmarks of an experience with Living Adventure. 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'.
