Trip Facilitators – Linda White, Dan Morrison Sign-up is limited to 7 paddlers. If you would love to explore the depths of the Apostle Islands, this trip is for you. We will depart from Bayfield, paddling the 14 miles to Stockton Island, setting up a base camp at the group site, and venturing out on daily day trips. You will have several choices as to where we will go including going to sea caves, sea stacks, a tombolo with its associated lagoon, a beautiful beach with it’s famous “singing sands), the lighthouse on Michigan Island, and several other possible choices. There is even great hiking opportunities such as to the tombolo and the beach mentioned above, and to an old quarry where some of the famous brown stone buildings in Chicago obtained their building materials. If you like a little more challenging trip into the Apostles and want to see some great geology, this is the trip for you. The trip will be 4 days and 3 nights. The trip is aimed at people who have been previously been on Lake Superior or other body of water the same size or larger.
