Welcome to Keweenaw Boat Tours

 Experience the ultimate tour of the Keweenaw only Keweenaw Boat Tours can provide. We provide a variety of options that cover the entire Keweenaw waterway. Choose from a Jacobsville Lighthouse and sandstone cliffs tour, an awe-inspiring Superior Sunset cruise, or a brand new adventure for 2023 that takes you from Lac La Belle to Keystone Bay, at the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula. The Lighthouse Cruise is a popular option that includes the historic Jacobsville lighthouse and the stunning sandstone cliffs that were formed millions of years ago. For those who prefer evening tours, the Superior Sunset Cruise is an ideal choice to savor the scenic beauty while enjoying the sunset over Lake Superior. The Keweenaw Adventure departs from Lac La Belle and transits along the shoreline to Keystone Bay, showcasing a remote section of the peninsula, which is only witnessed by boat. Each tour lasts for approximately 2.5 hours, and there are restrooms available along the way. If you choose the KEWEENAW EXPLORER (our 25ft cabin cruiser) there is a bathroom onbord for your convenience. Feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks on board.

As this is a private tour, your booking party will be the only party on the boat.

 Pet Friendly

As pet lovers ourselves, we understand that it costs LOTS of money to board your pet while you are on vacation, not to mention the worry associated with leaving your pet with someone you don't know. This is their getaway as well, so bring Fido along. Pets can enjoy a nice boat ride too!
