Small size of group allows for better viewing of sea caves, more personalized tour. It was great to be able to get so close to the caves.
Small sized, personal tours! Had an amazing time!
Beautiful day, guided tour that was informative. Reimbursement and understanding was made when some how I booked twice for a tour yet there was a glitch along the way. Highly recommend this company and would definitely go again.
Great tour guide, boat and experience. Would recommend it in a minute. Cornacopia is a great small town to spend some time in too.
Captain Mike was fun AND educational. Even with the threat of rain - which held off until we docked - he managed to show us all the sites. He accommodated all his guests well. We would definitely recommend this tour. In fact, we told fellow guests at our B&B accommodations who had booked this tour for the next day that it was definitely a "to-do." Thanks for the hospitality!
Captain Mike was very knowledgable. Great tour; loved being able to go into the sea caves. Would highly recommend this Powerboat tour.
Mike the captain was wonderful and his tour was very informative and entertaining! Even though we think he splashed us on purpose, it only added to the tour's fun and beauty! Great job...book with Mike, you won't regret it! We'll be back for sure, thank you!
What a wonderful trip! Captain Mike was very informative, safe and fun!! The next time we come to Cornucopia, Wisconsin, we'll book this trip again!!
This cruise was much more than we ever anticipated. Mike is a skilled and knowledgeable captain. Mike went above and beyond to make sure our experience was magical.
Captain Mike was AWSOME he was very skilled and knowledgeable.
We had a fabulous time with Mike. What a fun tour guide and so accommodating. We loved every minute!
We had rocking good time in all ways and waves. Mike was a great guide and was very informative on the lake and sea caves.
Great tour of the sandstone caves. Informative boat captain.
Tour was on time, well orchestrated, a reasonable length, and a great way to see the caves close up.

Loved the Sea Caves and all your knowledge of the Sea Caves. I would highly recommend this tour.
We all agree that all the info that Mike gave us made the trip so much more interesting! We were also impressed with his handling of the boat. And the time he spent getting a great picture of the 4 of us was above and beyond anything we expected. We showed several people our pictures and they were amazed at the beauty of the caves!! We are encouraging everyone to take the time and go on the tour! Thank you for a first class tour!!
Mike provided interesting factual information regarding the sea caves, Apostle Islands and Lake Superior. He paced the tour so pictures could be taken and offered and took pictures of participants during the tour. Mike had a great sense of humor which added to the experience. Appreciated that the group was small as it made it easy to view all the highlights of the sea caves without being in anybodies way. Highly recommend !!

They were friendly and informative. We had a great time.
Really enjoyed this excursion. Beautiful scenery. Captain Mike was very informative and truly cared that everyone was enjoying their experience. Would highly recommend and would like to do the trip again.
This tour was the highlight of our trip to the Apostle Islands! Captain Mike was professional and entertaining.
Captain Mike was informative, pleasant, & an extremely skilled driver. The caves are beautiful & I hope to be able to see them some time when they are covered in ice.
It was a great trip.
I went on this tour last year, and enjoyed it so much I went again this year! There were four in our group, and an other couple, and Captain Mike was accommodating and informative. Thanks again for a fun time!
Enjoyed the small group. Also, guide was very nice and really knew the lake. It was great!!
Very nice professional talented guide. Unbelievable nature Beaty. All together it came like a perfect day for us.
Mike is fantastic! Skilled,safe,and a wealth of knowledge on the sea caves and Làke Superior and Apostle islands! Next time will take the kids and tell friends! THX for a great time and we have wonderful pictures!
If you're in the area, this should be on your list as a "must do"! I stumbled upon this company while searching for things to do on our honeymoon, and I'm so glad we did! Captain Mike and his wife are wonderful people ~ very friendly, professional, and fun! Their gift shop is cute and full of lots of treasures that you don't find at every other gift shop! Their boat is VERY clean and well maintained, and the trip was fantastic! Captain Mike did a wonderful job getting us up close to the caves and had a wealth of knowledge and fun facts about the islands. They only take 6 people at one time, so there was plenty of room for everyone to move around the boat and it was a great time! We are already talking about bringing our children with us and coming back again next summer!

The whole family had a great trip and would love to go again next time. Captain Mike was very knowledgeable and made the trip memorable. I would highly recommend this to anyone that wants to see the sea caves.
Good equipment which was also very clean. Excellent safety instructions and good tour narrative. Thank you.
The trip was incredible. We went out on a 4pm tour on a rainy day in late Aug. 2017. We were able to ride inside the cabin to and from the caves and even during some of the cave viewing if we preferred. But when we reached the caves we just had to be outside to fully enjoy all the views and colors. Yes we got wet but it was worth it. Despite the rain and dark skies, the trip was wonderful--the views of the caves and rock formations were stunning and our pictures are great! It was great to sea the caves that we had only seen during the winter ice-cave season! Captain Mike is so personable, informative, and fun. He adapted the tour commentary and his humor to fit our interests, questions, and personalities. We can't wait to bring more of our family on this trip.
Mike took us on the sea caves tour and I have to say that everyone aboard was thrilled about the time we spent on the water. Our 7-year old enjoyed the speed on the water, my mother was fascinated by the multiple layers of the soil/stone and my wife and I really thought the tour was worth the money. Mike calibrated the amount of information he shared and was very sensitive to our interests as well as attentive to our questions. Hopefully next time we'll take one of the longer ones.
A fantastic way to see the sea caves if you are not in to kayaking or walking on the occasional ice. Very safety conscious, knowledgeable, and friendly boat captain. A mighty good bargain for the overall experience of seeing and being in the sea caves!
Captain Mike gave us a wonderful sea cave tour. He went out of his way to allow us to have spectacular views and excellent photo opportunities.
Captain Mike was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the sea caves. He was very courteous and very professional about explaining the safety protocols that we were to follow. Definitely rate him as: A+++++++++++.
More then expected. Wonderful !
Mike made it very enjoyable. Pleased he was concerned with our safety. Very pleasant and professional.
Captain Mike was GREAT!! He made sure that we had plenty of time to take the pictures that we wanted and helped take pictures of each other. He also got very close if not into the caves so that we could really see how beautiful they were.
We had a wonderful time, the ice caves were spectacular and our guide was a fountain of information. Ready to go again! Everyone should go on this tour!
Had a great time. Very personalized - answered questions and tailored the trip to our interests.
Captain Mike was very knowledgeable about the area. He took us very close and inside some of the sea caves. I would definitely recommend this tour company for the sea caves tour. I would do this again.

Captain Mike was knowledgeable about the area and had some interesting things to tell us about the caves. He is very observant and pointed out things I would have completely missed. I was impressed with the skill he had in handling the boat, especially when getting us into the sea caves. We have had a boat and know they are not easy to control in close quarters. The caves were beautiful. Definitely the highlight of our trip. I was concerned for my husband because he has gotten sea sick before. We had a bit of drizzle and waves and the ride in the boat was very comfortable. No seasickness. Captain Mike tried very hard to make it an enjoyable experience. I am very glad we went with you. Thank you!
Captain Mike was very professional had a fun way of presenting the tour. We had our three children along (14, 10 & 8) and Captain Mike had a way to make each one feel like they were an important part of the tour. We found the gift shop to be one of the best around!
Our trip was great! Mike was an awesome guide who showed the majesty of nature! We never imagined that the trip would be as great as it was. We look forward to a return trip to the caves!
Wonderful tour,even better than I expected. Captain Mike is great and very fun! We got to get right inside some of the caves! I would recommend this tour for everyone! Great gift shop too by the way!
