Wonder boat ride and the lighthouse tour was very unique. The lighthouse has been kept as original as possible and our guide was very knowledgeable. The boat is from the VietNam era...also quite unique. Very enjoyable.

The reason this gets this rating is because the boat ride and tour was excellent. The day we went drizzle but the water was smooth and we were prepared. Captain Tim stopped several times and explained things on the water and added his own flair to it. The lighthouse itself is beautiful. The tour itself except the beginning is pretty... More

It was perfect weather, calm seas and blue sky. The boat is open and comfortable for the slow cruise out to the lighthouse. The Captain stops a couple of times on the way out to explain some history, geology and markings. After docking the Captain gave a more detailed history and opened the buildings for self guided tours - the... More

I'm not a huge history buff, but I found the lighthouse tour very interesting. It was a good mix of guided and unguided free roam. The best part was the sunset views on Lake Superior. Tim, the captain, had a great personality. I'd highly recommend this sunset tour!!

Nice ride out to the lighthouse and keepers' quarters. Lots of history and well-restored and maintained premises. Knowledgable boat captain/tour guide and a most interesting boat, reclaimed from the military and perfect for the short cruise.

We took the tour to the lighthouse and enjoyed the history of the lighthouse as well as of the topography of the island itself. The era of copper mining throughout the Keweenaw was an interesting time in Michigan's past. Enjoy a pasty and think of the miners of long ago!

My wife and I visited on July 13 2016 and found the tour to be a nice balance of guided and unguided. The boat that take you to the lighthouse is smallish which limits the size of the group, making it more personal. There were 8 in our group. The guide was very personable and knowledgeable about the lighthouse and... More

I arrived too late for the tour, so I drove down Hwy 41 where there is a pullout that leads to a view of Copper Harbor and the lighthouse. There I was able to get some good views. Not as good as getting to the lighthouse, but was worthwhile.

About 1 1/2 hours long, a boat ride with information about the lighthouse and a tour of the lighthouse. My whole family really enjoyed this. Bathrooms available at the marina where the tour leaves from as well as a few souvenirs, also an outhouse at the lighthouse area. (for those who are wondering) A pleasant trip - recommend this!
