Squaw Bay Sea Caves Professional Review and Guide

"The Squaw Bay sea caves are a magic place. On our last visit we arrived at the caves just before sunset. The water was like glass, and with the setting sun, the sandstone cliffs glowed red in the most fantastic colors. With the lake level at a record low, there were more arches and caves to explore than usual, and we were able to slide our kayaks hand over hand along the ceiling of deep passages that we had not entered in years.

As a game we started to paddle through every sea arch, but we lost interest in the game and lost count somewhere after twenty-five arches. The previous month had been wet and rainy, and curtains of water cascaded from cracks in the cliffs, sparkling in the setting sun, and providing a cooling shower on a warm summer evening."

The highlite of the summer .... Beautiful and stunning ... worth the work
This is a great experience if you ever get a chance, I'd highly recommend it. We were able to kayak through calm streams and lakes before we reached the great Lake Superior to tour caves as the tide was down. Great time was had by all and wasnt that difficult. Beautiful relaxing time for a day or half day experience.
