    Apostle Islands National Lakeshore

For well over a century lighthouses have guided mariners through the waters of Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands. Today, these historic island beacons are a traveler's treasure and a rich part of Wisconsin's maritime history. Our Celebration offers cruises that dock at Raspberry, Sand, Devils and Outer Island to explore the lighthouse grounds, a new shipwreck & lighthouse cruise, and we end our event with the Ultimate Lighthouse Cruise; a non-stop voyage to see five of the eight lights from the comfort of your cruise boat. Cruise Lake Superior's Apostle Islands National Lakeshore and learn about Keepers and their families who lived and worked in this secluded setting on the greatest of the Great Lakes, Lake Superior. Other activities include visiting artists, book signings, lectures, Keeper's Reunion and a photography contest.
