Apostle Islands Cruise

Devils Island, Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Park
The Lighthouse and Sea Caves - Devils Island, Apostle Islands National Lakeshore


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.
