This boat tour only has two scheduled trips per day. We stayed overnight to take the 10am tour. It was worth our stay. Captain Cal was informative and witty. We loved seeing the sea caves that only can be seen by taking a kayak or boat. There are sea caves on the shore line, which by the way, are the... More

We loved the Grand Tour of the Apostle Islands. Captain Brett and family were extremely hospitable. We enjoyed all of the history and general information that was shared throughout the tour. We would highly recommend this cruise!

Captain Jack kept us entertained with his interesting information regarding the islands and history stories &/or legends of the islands. My niece & I took the early tour (3 1/2 hrs) & the weather was perfect for it. The brown stones, lighthouses, caves & fishing camp were the highlights of the trip. There are snacks and drinks available that the... More

To start off talking about the cruise, it was horribly boring. Like the rest of the reviews, the only fun sea caves to see are on devils island. I understand it takes a while to get out there, but a lot of the mind numbing boring information could have been cut out, as well as some of the time of... More

They offer 3 tours. My wife and I did the Grand tour of may islands ending up out at Devil's island. The other two cruses are a 4 hour cruise to Raspberry Island, but you better be able to hike for 2 hours on the island. My daughter and I who were on a motorcycle trip chose the glass bottomed...

My wife and I took the 3 1/2 hour, evening Grand Tour. Boat was only about half full, so we had plenty of room on this trip. There was rain and some lightning during the trip out, but the captain did a nice job missing the worst storms and he kept us entertained with his stories of the islands. When... More

My husband and I really enjoyed the 3 1/4 hour grand tour. We were able to see all the islands as well as the sea caves surrounding Devils Island. There are drinks and snacks available for purchase or you can bring your own (including alcohol). Our captain was a hoot! He was very engaging, had loads of info about the... More

The glass bottom boat tour gave my family a three hour Lake Superior Apostle Island tour. We were able to view the wreckage of three ships and also view lighthouses and sea caves. The boat ride was comfortable and treats and soft drinks were available to purchase. I would recommend this tour to anyone who would not only like to... More
