My son and I did the 1/2 day tour. Our guide was Henry and he was very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. Not having much kayaking experience, we both felt incredibly comfortable with our maiden trip on Lk Superior in a tandem kayak in windy conditions. The check-in staff was very friendly and answered all questions thoroughly. Recommend Northern... More

We are one American and seven Europeans friends who wanted to visit the famous Pictured Rocks National Park. We found Northern Waters Adventure by chance because another Kayaking company was all booked up. Upon pulling up we were almost immediately approached by a friendly face asking if we were there to kayak. Even though we are late for the 9AM... More

If you want to get up close and personal at Pictured Rocks National Seashore, then kayaking is the way to go. Kristen, our guide with Northern Waters Adventures was excellent. We had some inexperienced kayakers in our group and she made everyone feel confident - she was very patient. The kayaking part is only 2 hours, not 4 hours as... More

Before the tour, I thought this was one of those over-hyped experiences with a lot of tourists and hardly any scenic beauty. But boy, was I wrong! And was glad I was wrong. Northern Waters gave us a great tour. Joe and Kristin were great; they let us have our fun exploring the caves and the rocks but were always... More

We had been kayaking on lakes and rivers but never in Lake Superior. After hearing of several rescues in the area recently we wanted to be sure we were in good hands. Carl, Ann & Mark were great guides, lots of fun yet their bottom line is safety!

This is a journey I have long wanted to take! Carl and his staff assured that it was worth every moment I hoped it would be! I am by no means an experienced kayaker, but by the end of the quick but thorough instruction of what was necessary to get us safely on our excursion, I felt comfortable. The trip... More

We had an amazing time!!!! Carl and his staff were great tour guides. The scenery was breathtaking. Next time we will sign up for the day tour. It was sold out by the time we decided to do this.

I called last minute and spoke with Amanda on Friday, September 2nd to see if there were any tours available for Sunday, September 4th. I was thankful that there was availability for the 0900 half day tour and booked it. Their building is located right next to the American Legion Post 131. When you you check in at Northern Waters...

After a couple of stalls due to weather, we got off on the third try and boy was it worth the wait! Wonderful scenery, as close as you wanted it, in well maintained equipment, with fun guides :) If you like a bit of exercise and adventure along with a beautiful view, you can't beat this experience.
