KEWEENAW BOAT TOURS- Welcome to the Keweenaw's premier boat tour with options that span the entire waterway. Highlights of the Lighthouse Cruise to Keweenaw Bay include the historic Jacobsville lighthouse and sandstone cliffs formed from eroding mountains millions of years ago. If you prefer an evening cruise, grab some food/drinks and eat dinner during an epic Sunset Cruise  to Lake Superior.

With Keweenaw Boat Tours you will experience sights and sounds only we can provide. We are the only boat tour that allows you to escape the city for the opportunity to see wildlife, lighthouses, and geological features over 1 billion years old! 


Custom Charters- Contact us for special charter options. With this option we can work with you on a unique boat cruise.

The Boat- A 24ft South Bay Pontoon Luxury series has plenty of room for all your gear and then some. It meets all U.S. Coast Guard safety standards and is certified by the state of Michigan as a charter vessel. This boat is perfect for getting up close to lighthouses and the sandstone cliffs of Keweenaw. It can provide tours for an hour or several hours, allowing you to see plenty of our amazing natural attractions without being limited to a small portion of the waterway.  A large cooler and ice are provided for all your food and drinks. Our onboard Bluetooth speaker system allows you to enjoy your favorite tunes while you take in the picturesque Keweenaw Waterway!











The Captain- As a retired U.S. Coast Guard boat operator, Captain Jason puts your safety first. His experience includes boat and ship operation from Florida to Alaska, and educating the public on boating safety.

All trips are BYOB so feel free to bring drinks (beer, wine, soft drinks, iced tea, etc..) and snacks of your choice.

Restrooms are available at locations along each of our tours, so you won't have to worry if nature calls.

We are pet friendly - so bring your four-legged family member along. Afterall, they deserve a boat ride too, right? (Friendly pets only please)

"There’s no better way to spend a summer evening in the Copper Country. A smooth, comfortable ride, an informative and entertaining captain, and the scenery — unbeatable. This is the best way to experience the Keweenaw. My family and I took the tour in summer 2021, and definitely will again first chance we get. Worth every penny!"

-Dave M


We thoroughly enjoyed our 3-hour tour of the Keweenaw Waterway going to South Entry and the Jacobsville Lighthouse. Captain Swain is knowledgeable, personable, and most importantly safety conscious. Don’t hesitate to book a trip with him!
