Our Cruises

Daily Cruises

Our daily scenic cruises are about 2.5hrs in duration and will  take you to one of two amazing destinations along the North Shore.  

Our primary destination takes us to Split Rock Lighthouse along some of the most beautiful shoreline on Lake Superior's shoreline.  With rugged cliff lines, bald eagles, the shipwreck "Madeira" not to mention a million dollar view of the lighthouse we know that your trip will be the highlight of your North Shore Experience

    Our  northern cruise is no less impressive. Offering lake views of the mouth of the Baptism River, Palisade Head & Shovel Point.  You'll want to make sure that you bring your camera so you don't miss the true majesty of Lake Superior.  Cancelation notices are posted on our phone message (218) 464-6162 the day of the cruise, but sometimes dockside cancelations are required for safety.

Private Cruises:   Enjoy our daily scenic cruise with the privacy of your own group.  Our boat is available for private charter any day of the week outside of daily scenic cruise scheduled times.  Make your grooms dinner, family reunion or business meeting one you'll never forget on board the M/V Wenonah.  Our 5 HD video monitors and PA system are available for your group's special presentation, or just enjoy our slide / video presentation on North Shore attractions and history.

Group reservations:  Although our daily scenic cruises are first come first serve, we do offer reservations for groups of 15 or greater.  Our vessel is US Coast Guard Certified for 97 passengers and it's our pleasure to accommodate your group on our scheduled daily cruises.  Your group reservations initials you to priority boarding giving you the opportunity to keep your group together while onboard.        

Event Cruises

Twilight & Tunes:  On the Friday or Saturday evening closest to the full moon in June, July, August we provision the boat with Barbecue, appetizers, beer, wine and soft drinks.  We provide live music and some of the best scenery along Lake Superior's North Shore by moonlight.  The boat departs the dock approximately 1/2 hour before sunset for one of our signature 2.5hr cruises.  Check our schedule for exact departure times and dates.

Manitou Falls: What a cruise!  It encompasses our standard Palisade Head / Shovel Point cruise but doesn't stop at Crystal Bay.  We will continue past our usual turn around point to Manitou River Falls, the only point on Lake Superior's North Shore where a major river dumps into the lake from several feet above lake level providing amazing photos.  Check our schedule for exact departure times and dates
