Explore the vast waters of Lake Superior on a chartered boat tour, view columnar basalts and archways, visit the site of sunken ships and discover the Slate Islands, Rossport Islands and Battle Island.

The open waters of Lake Superior are waiting to be explored, so hop aboard a chartered boat tour and answer the siren call of gichigamiing. Whether you choose a quick spin or decide to spend a whole day enjoying what can be some very wild winds and waves on this ‘inland sea’, you’ll fill your senses with the wilderness. See columnar basalts and arches – geological oddities rarely seen elsewhere – and visit the site where the Gunilda now lies on Lake Superior’s dark bottom. Tour the Slate Islands, Rossport Islands and Battle Island and learn about their history, birds and wildlife from friendly local tour operators.

Feeling energetic? Arrange for a kayak and a shuttle service to take you to the best spots.

If you have a boat and plan to explore on your own, please be sure to consult local guides for the best routes and current information. Always make a trip plan and leave it with someone you trust. Keep in mind that Lake Superior is not just any lake and you should prepare for conditions similar to those in ocean environments.


Season: May 24th weekend until Thanksgiving Weekend (weather depending).
