Tahquamenon Falls Train
and Riverboat Tours since 1927

Tahquamenon Falls Riverboat Tours finished it's 96th season and the Stewarts will be heading into well deserved retirement after 42 years. Are you interested in owning and operating one of the most iconic businesses in the Upper Peninsula? Contact us for more information about this unique opportunity.

Train and Riverboat Tour to the Tahquamenon Falls

This 6 1/2 hour wilderness tour starts with a 35 minute narrow gauge train ride, followed by a 2 hour, narrated riverboat cruise.

After reaching the rapids above the falls, the riverboat docks for one hour and fifteen minutes, allowing for a 5/8 mile nature hike to our private view of the upper Tahquamenon Falls.

After the stopover, the riverboat and train retrace their route back to Soo Junction. The nature hike includes stairs and is not handicap accessible.

The 2023 tour season has ended, and the owner/operators are retiring. As they look to sell the business, a 2024 season remains uncertain. Check back in the early spring for updates.

About The Riverboat Hiawatha

The Hiawatha offers two decks, with enclosed seating, open air seating and restrooms. During the cruise, the captain provides narration on points of interest including: logging and Native American history, and the Tahquamenon River's plant and animal life.

The riverboat features a bar and grill onboard. Our grill serves hamburgers, hot dogs, bratwurst, ham & cheese, chicken sandwiches, sloppy joes, nachos, vegetarian burgers and grilled cheese. We have homemade chili after Labor Day.

We also have snacks, chips, and beverages including beer, wine and wine coolers. All sandwiches are between $4.50 and $8.00, tax included. Purchases made on the riverboat's bar and grill are cash only.
