Tips for the Ride

Tips for the Tour

If you’re like many people, you want to plan and get the best experience on our boat tour.  We’ve listed some tips that will help you prepare for your adventure.

Arrive at least one-half hour prior to your departure time and check in at the gift shop.

We do not allow any food or drink on the boat (unless you have a medical condition).  This includes anything in bottles, water, sports drinks, etc.  Trash can escape out of our drainage holes in the boat so let’s all be great stewards of Lake Superior and protect this precious natural resource from pollution.

The line for the boat ride is first-come, first-served.  Meaning, when we load the boat the order you are lined up for the boat ride is the order you get to choose your seats.  We also can’t guarantee your group will sit together. So…. if you want certain seats arrive early.  How early?  It depends on how early other people arrive for your boat ride, so there is no specific time we can tell you to come.  Also, child ticket holders cannot sit in the very first two rows of the boat.

There are no bathrooms on board the boat.  So please use the restroom before departing.

Depending on the wind, the air temperature can be about ten degrees cooler on the water.  Please dress accordingly.  If you don’t want to get wet bring some type of rain gear.  This includes something for your feet such as flip flips, water shoes, etc.  We also recommend bringing something to protect your valuables from any wetness.
