The best tour of the Apostle Islands! We saw shipwrecks, the sea caves, eagles, lighthouses, etc. Captain Pete was super nice, knowledgeable and told great stories. I highly recommend PMG...it was the best part of our vacation to Northern Wisconsin.

I would recommend that anyone that wants an up close tour of the apostle islands book with captain Pete. Not only can he get to other places the large tour lines can't, you don't have to be canned like sardines! We took a half day tour with captain Pete and it was amazing. Docking on the rocks of devils island... More

We had a great sea cave tour with Captain Pete out of Cornicopia. The caves were beautiful and Pete worked very hard to make sure we got up close inside the caves to enjoy the beauty of the cathedrals and archways. He gave us time to take pictures and quietly take in the awesome sandstone carvings and color. Captain Ashley... More

It was a great tour with Captain Pete. We had to change our plans due to weather conditions and he was very flexible and met our schedule requirements. We had an up close and personal tour of the main land sea caves....a perfect length for my mixed age group.

I am sure the trip would have been great had we been able to go. I received a confirmation email the day before and assumed all was good for our trip. We were a group of 6 and had booked online eleven days before the scheduled trip. 4 of our group traveled from all the way from Kenosha for the... More

This customer booked the wrong trip which she assumed was going to go to the sea caves when we informed her that this was not the case and asked her if she wanted to book the proper trip the timing did not work for her. I cannot turn a booking for one specific trip into a different location booking. I... More

Captain Pete was great from the very beginning. Yes there are tour boats and kayak tours that go out to Devil's Island, but Captain Pete's boat is the best way to go. Lake Superior can go wonky very quickly and I'd hate to be on a kayak when it did. Tour boats are like riding in a sardine can and... More

We took a 2 hour tour of the caves with Captain Peter. He was friendly and accommodating. He was knowledgeable about the area and told us stories though out. He had a small enough boat that he could pull all the way into the small areas to see the walls up close. Captain Peter also arranged it so we could... More

Before we came to stay on Madeline Island, we contacted PMG out of Bayfield, WI to set-up a tour of the Apostle Islands during our stay. We talked to Captain Peter and his wife to arrange for an afternoon tour. We agreed on a 3 to 7 pm slot on one of our days, but our time became dependent on... More

We booked a 2 hour tour with Captain Peter because we wanted an up-close-to-the-caves experience but didn't have enough time for a guided kayaking trip. He rearranged his schedule and was able to fit us in for a last-minute booking. Superior was a bit rough but we felt very safe throughout the trip. Captain Peter was able to bring us... More
