The Apostle Islands are part of Wisconsin, not Minnesota. located in Wisconsin's section of Lake Superior. You will need a Wisconsin fishing license to fish there. That said, it's a wonderful destination.

The islands are worth taking the trip. I loved Devil's Island so take the cruise. You will not be disappointed.

“Thanks God”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

He sure made some gorgeous islands! We took the Apostle Island Cruise out of Bayfield WI and cruised for two hours among these federally protected islands, some have lighthouses. You can camp on some of them. Our tour was cut one hour short due to bad weather coming in from the west but was great anyway and they even refunded one third of our fare...classy eh?

“Pristine nature all around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

There is nothing like being "away from it all" and the Apostle Islands are truly one of the gems of Wisconsin where you can escape the stresses and turmoil of city life. Hike on the islands. Be amazed at the clarity of the water. Watch the wildlife - especially great for bird enthusiasts. The most stirring thing, though is the solitude. It's as though you were dropped in an idyllic scene, and whether you gaze at sailboats sharing the space, or if you are lucky enough to drink in the surroundings in solitary, your senses will be heightened by the experience. if you don't own a boat - there are ways to experience the islands. There are big boat tours, but the best way to appreciate the area is on a small boat that can get you on land to truly appreciate the flourishing natural surroundings. There are kayak trips too - make SURE if you kayak, that you have experienced guides, and a good weather radio. Mother Superior still rules the day.
