The tour was very informative and interesting especially when the captain tells some stories of happenings of other vessels through the locks.

Calling this a lighthouse tour when you only see two lighthouses is a bit of a stretch. But, it is a nice ride along both the US and Canadian coasts. The script and presentation need some work, but the captain was very good and knew more than just what was scripted. Be prepared

Thank you for your review. In our description of the tour we do mention that you will see two lighthouses. This tour has always been very popular, as most people do not get to experience Lake Superior by water. We appreciate your comments and always value our customer’s opinions.

No respect for the state mandated mask law, by both the staff and customers. Beyond ignorant, totally ignoring public safety. No wonder the rest of the world has closed its doors to us.
