Apostle Islands Cruises

Apostle Islands National Lakeshore includes a group of 21 islands in Lake Superior, off the Bayfield Peninsula in northern Wisconsin, and is great vacation or weekend getaway. Apostle Islands Cruises provides a one-of-a-kind experience and offers the only boat cruise to tour the islands. We offer several tour boat options including our newest glass bottom boat. Relax and enjoy as you are treated to a 3-1/4 hour narrated cruise aboard our coast guard approved vessels. Stunning natural scenery, windswept beaches, historic lighthouses, rock formations, sea caves, marine wildlife and underwater mysteries of Lake Superior will forever be etched in your mind. Climb aboard the Ashland Bayfield Express to Raspberry Island and tour the historic Raspberry Island lighthouse. The Ashland Bayfield Express provides a convenient shuttle to several islands for campers wishing to experience the wilderness. The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore encourages visitors to enjoy camping in the designated camping zones. As night falls upon your campsite, you will surely enjoy star gazing while you listen to the sounds of mighty Lake Superior. Climb aboard and experience the Apostle Islands... a trip you'll want to take again and again! Reservations recommended.
