Our Sunset Tour on 8/26/16 could only be described as "Perfect"! We were the only kayak on the tour, so received one-on-one instruction/commentary from our guide, Chris. His kayaking experience is extensive and we could not have had a better guide.

A great little bay for all levels of experience. Our three teens had a blast roaming the bay in a kayak. A nice adjacent beach for parents to relax. Or why not take a kayak too!

I have only kayaked once previously so I wanted the safety of going out with a tour rather than independently. From the reservation process through the end of the tour the customer service I received was superb. This tour left from the South Shore Pier in Ephraim which is conveniently located to most any lodging in the area, however I... More

Most of us had not been kayaking before so we chose the family fun tour geared for families with small children. We went to an uncrowded, protected bay with less wind and warmer water. Our guide Evan was very friendly and helpful. He took us out on the water and then we docked to hike through the woods and swim... More

This was an amazing kayak tour. Bay shore offered several different times/days for tours during our 4 day stay. The staff was super friendly and helpful. You got a pretty long guided tour for you money. The group was not super big, which was very nice. Gives you awesome views of the beautiful lake. I am an experienced kayaker and... More

Super affordable, easy and fun. We rented a tandem kayak for 3 days. We were able to get it right away, put it on the car and be in the water within 30 minutes.

I love the brands and the selection of the clothing at both Sister Bay & Sturgeon Bay stores. I will frequent the Sturgeon Bay store more often as I love the Madison Avenue shopping district. And if there is something I am interested in but it is not in stock, they will order it in for me.

We stopped here wanting to rent and try stand up paddle boards. We were told that they only rented them by the day here but in their other location it was by the hour. Being that it was only a few miles we went to the other location. When we arrived we were informed that they do not rent them... More

When we went out (from the Ephraim dock), the guys recommended that we go out for an hour because it was supposed to rain later. I asked if we could keep the return time open and see how it goes, and they said OK. Well, the sun stayed out and weather seemed to be no problem, so we stayed out... More
