Sea Kayaking


Do you want to take scenic trips along coasts? Have you heard of island-hopping through the Apostles of Lake Superior? Whether you yearn for the spray of the sea or the spring morning Monona mists, sea kayaking is for you! If you are drawn to exploring open waters, big or small, come check out sea kayaking!

The Sea Kayaking Activity Group encompasses many of the skills similar to backpacking, but instead of having a trail to follow, the open waterways of Wisconsin’s Inland Lakes and the Great Lakes offer boundless opportunities for adventure and exploration. Trips can be as short as a day right out on Lake Mendota or can even be overnight trips to the Apostle Islands or Door County.

Sea Kayaking Lessons and Trips are lead by our generous and knowledgeable base of Hoofer Outing Club Volunteers.
