Pinehurst & Living Adventure Partner for Lake Superior Kayaking

May 30th, 2013 by Nancy Sandstrom

Lake  Superior Kayaking among Apostle Islands

One of the most common questions we hear is “What should we try to do while we are visiting Bayfield and the Apostle Islands?” During the spring-summer-fall season, I typically will say, “Get out on the water.” Lake Superior has it’s own story. Walking the beaches, gazing out at Madeline Island or Basswood Island (the most visible from Bayfield) is wonderful. But being ON the water takes you to a new level of appreciation. So over the next few blog posts, we will explore the various ways to put yourself on the water.

We’ve already mentioned the Pinehurst Dreamcatcher Sailing Package in an earlier post. We love sailing and it can be both exhilarating and relaxing.

For the more adventurous folks out there, the Apostle Islands offers magnificent Lake Superior kayaking. Sitting in a this cozy vessel, peacefully paddling in these amazingly clear waters of Lake Superior, floating among the the wooded shorelines or water-ice-carved cave formations – all these experiences and more make this opportunity one not to be missed.

Pinehurst Inn is pleased to partner with Living Adventure, a terrific outfitter ready to create a magnificent paddling experience. LA is once again 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. In other words, they know what they are doing. The variety of trips offered can be enjoyed by the majority of visitors regardless of experience. The guides will provide training and expertise in a relaxed atmosphere.

Lake Superior Kayaking among Apostle IslandsThe Pinehurst Apostle Island Kayaking Package is a perfect way to start building your Bayfield adventure. Combining eco-elegant lodging with the Living Adventures Sea Caves trip has proven to be a winner with our guests. If you’re looking for a unique opportunity in a beautiful place, this is it. A great way to actively “get out on the water.”

Apostle Islands Sailing Package

Bayfield and the Apostle Islands provide opportunity for so many wonderful on-the-water activities. Pinehurst Inn guests are drawn to the area for these adventures. Pinehurst Inn and Dreamcatcher Sailing have once again partnered to provide a wonderful lodging and sailing package. As you will see on the Deamcatcher website, “The secrets of the Apostle Islands expose themselves to those who slowly, quietly explore.”

The Pinehurst Apostle Islands Sailing Package provides a mix of two nights lodging along with the Afternoon Sail with Dreamcatcher Sailing. This 2+ hour trip leaves from Bayfield, one of the most popular sailing ports in the Great Lakes. The amazing number of sailboats reinforces that the presence of the islands sets the stage for this great experience.

Dreamcatcher’s captains are the best! Seasoned sailors, they provide a safe and informational experience. Take the wheel, help with the lines or simply relax – your choice! Let them provide the setting and you determine how involved you want to be.

Two hours not enough? Consider some of their other trips: Island Landing Excursion (goes from 9:30-2:00) or the Sea Caves by Sail out of Cornucopia. Pinehurst Inn is happy to arrange special discounted package pricing on any of these Dreamcatcher opportunities.
