On a Memorial Day Weekend we took the Grand Tour of the islands offered by Apostle Islands Cruise Service. Early in the season, this cruise departs at 10 am and returns to Bayfield at 1 pm. Later in the season, they also offer afternoon and evening cruises as well as specialty cruises focusing on various aspects like lighthouses, sunken ships, island land tours, etc.
The highlight of the trip was circling Devils Island to see its lighthouse and sea caves. see the Devil's Island Sea Caves Video lower down this page
We traveled on the "Island Princess" which will carry up to 140 passengers, with a maximum of 50 on the upper deck.
Dan, Jo and Donna enjoy the comfort of the lower cabin, sheltered from the wind and cool weather. The windows slide open for picture taking or a breeze during hot weather. > > >
< < < The upper deck passengers were bundled up for the cool air and the morning breeze. The first 50 tickets purchased have the option of seating in the upper deck.
< < < Honeymoon Rock at the north end of Basswood Island.
< < < Oak Island in the background, the second largest of the Apostle Islands.
