Kayaking Trips: The Apostle Islands

Windswept beaches and beautiful rock formations, the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore is a gem of Wisconsin and a popular kayaking destination.

The 21 islands and 12 miles of mainland that make up the Apostle Islands host a uniqueblend of cultural and natural resources. With 8 historic towers on 6 different islands, the area is home to more lighthouses than any other National Park Service. The islands are also a haven for bird watching. They provide a nesting habitat for more than 150 bird species and serve as a rest stop for more than 250 more during spring and fall migrations.

It’s no wonder then that adventurists from across the U.S. are drawn to the islands. Boasting some of the best blue-water paddling in the country, kayaking is among the best ways to explore the area. You’ll see sandstone cliffs, sea caves, historic lighthouses and unspoiled beaches.
