About Our Tours
One of the most beautiful and unique places in the world, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is home to towering sandstone cliffs, featuring colorful mineral formations. Your trip with Lake Superior Boat Tours will give everyone in your group excellent views of the cliffs, all in a relaxed and private setting.
Our tours depart in Munising Bay, where you’ll first check out the sites on the east side of Grand Island, such as the East Channel Lighthouse. From there, you’ll see other natural wonders such as Miners Castle, Bridal Veil Falls, Grand Portal Point, Chapel Rock, Spray Falls, and more! With our pontoon boat, we can get you closer to the sites versus other tours.
In addition, Lake Superior Boat Tours offers you the freedom and flexibility to do what you want on the boat. Interested in swimming around the famous Chapel Rock or Spray Falls? Our pontoon boat can pull right up to Chapel Beach!
Or perhaps you want to get in some quality photos of the rock cliffs – we’re happy to linger close to whatever spot you want to capture.

Often overlooked in favor of Pictured Rocks, Grand Island offers guests a less crowded boat tour option. This large island just north of Munising is a hidden gem that contains rock cliffs taller than Pictured Rocks, old lighthouses, secluded beaches, shipwrecks, bald eagles, and beautiful caverns and waterfalls.
Along the east end of the island lies the historic East Channel Lighthouse, originally constructed in 1868. From there, you’ll encounter some unique caverns and arches. As you round the north end of the island, you’ll come across the Grand Island North Light Station, built in 1867, which sits atop a 175-foot cliff. Towering rock formations, waterfalls, and even shipwrecks await you on the west side of the island (and, if you’re lucky, an unforgettable sunset!)
