Sea Kayak Trip on Lake Superior

Hi all,
I used to live and work around NY and am coordinating a sea kayak trip to the Apostle Islands National Park http://www.nps.gov/apis/index.htm
If we get a group together I can get you a good price.

***Update[masked]5 signed up!

The trip is set for August 20-22. We got some good campsites on Oak and Stockton Islands.

For the 3 day trip the cost is $389 + tax = $410 per person. If we get 6 from NYC to commit it goes down to $365 + tax = $385 and more off per person after that.

The deposit is $100 per person made out to Lost Creek Adventures and send to 21740 Siskiwit Lake Rd, Cornucopia WI 54827

We had a deadline listed of April 1st, but that's just a loose guideline. We just want to try and fill as many spots with folks from NYC before letting others in.

Here is the cancellation policy:

*2 day + and camping reservations: You must notify us at least 30 days in advance for a full reimbursement, 15-29 days in advance for deposit reimbursement minus expenses (camping reservations made on your behalf and administration fees) 14 days or less, no deposit reimbursement unless you find someone who can fill your spot. If you must cancel last-minute due to a serious personal illness we will do our best to reschedule you, however in lieu of our ability to do so the loss will be shared equally. (loss of deposit)

    The trip is full! If you didn't put down a deposit with me I'm sorry but the trip is full.

    We have a few people signed up for the trip now, so it's getting to the point where you should think about getting your deposit in if you want to make sure a spot is held for you.

    Is there a way to post photos on here? I have got a bunch I'd like to share.

    To those who have not yet made a deposit, let's try to make a deadline of May 1st. Unless we fill the trip we could take more people, but it would be nice to organize as a group for travel to get here, etc.
    Again, the deposit is refundable for a while after May 1st, but this would help everyone else who is going.

    Just updated the trip. Once deposits are in I'll list off the people who are "for sure" so you can contact one another to make travel arrangements if you like. (share rental car, hotels, etc)

    Too far away to commit $$ by 4/1

      April 1st was a loose guidline to see how many wanted to go. Really, any time in the next few months can work. The problem comes in for people trying to share travel logisitics like a rental car, etc.

    Greg, when would you like the money?

    February 25, 2013

    • Greg W.

      The sooner we do this the sooner we're sure that we have the trip. Let's try for April 1st deadline.

    It's looking like most people have the end of August as their likely open time.

    The Apostle Islands require camping permits, and if the group is bigger than 7, group camping permits. I have GROUP camping permits already for the below trip -

    (3 days-2 nights)
    Lose yourself in the Islands for a while, we'll get you back safe and sound. This isn't a "3 hour tour"! we will spend 3 DAYS exploring various islands, camps, sea caves, lighthouses, and old growth forests. We plan our route to allow some good paddling yet enough free time on the islands to explore on your own.

    August 20-22 (which we'd have the Full moon)

    $389 plus tax per person includes equipment, guide(s), and meals.

    The other option is if there are experienced people in the group to help lead, you all could take a basic safety course and then rent the boats and gear. Having guides is great because they know the area and take care of you.

    If the group is smaller than 7 there are more options for campsites...

    Id be interested but like everyone else, depending on the details - I have experience kayaking but on flat water, no wet exit/eskimo roll experience - if that's not required, I'm interested
