Three Great Lakes cruise companies are offering tours of northern Michigan via Lake Superior this summer.

Navigate the Portage Canal and see towering mining structures from the late 1800s and pass under the double-deck Portage Lake Lift Bridge. Or embark on a remote adventure to Manitou Island, Keweenaw Point, and High Rock Bay from Copper Harbor’s docks. Also, one can see passing freighters, sunsets, and some of the most beautiful rock cliff faces in the Upper Peninsula with three different boat services this summer.

Noah’s Ark Charters docks at the Bella Vista Motel in Copper Harbor and embarks off the north shore. This boat tour dips into Lake Superior’s waters and takes you to see three historic lighthouses. Cruise the shoreline and admire Brockway Mountain, Keweenaw Point and High Rock Bay or spend hours reeling in coho, trout and walleye. Copper Harbor is a thrilling experience for boating enthusiasts and can be a picturesque place for first timers to try a tour.

Relax on a quiet ride with Copper Country Boat Tours, the Keweenaw’s only fully electric charter. Float by the Quincy Smelting Works and see copper’s last step before shipping on the Great Lakes. The Keweenaw Waterway cuts across the peninsula making for a protected and calm boating experience in summer. Copper Country Boat Tours docks next to the Ramada in Hancock and can take you up and down the Portage Canal. Go under the Portage Lake Lift Bridge on your tour and listen for the hum of traffic above you.

Keweenaw Boat Tours runs a boat tour that offers “an adventurous taste of Lake Superior boating.” For a more leisureful pace, book the luxury pontoon. One can reserve a voyage out of Lac La Belle that goes to Bare Bluff, Montreal Falls, and the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula. See some of the most remote places in the Keweenaw while riding in style with Keweenaw Boat Tours.
