The Apostle Islands Sea Caves had their busiest weekend of the season. 21,000 people visited on Saturday and Sunday alone. 

64,000 people have now visited the caves this winter.

One visitor shared a video with us showing the cars parked on the highway for miles.

Officials said some cars parked 4 miles away. That makes the walk to and from the caves close to 12 miles.

There are two separate shuttle services, however, running visitors from two locations.
