Tours and Pricing

Important notice: The first riverboat tour to the falls has been delayed until July 1st. One of the stairways at the falls viewing area has suffered damage due to a rock slide. Repairs will be complete by the end of June. 

New opening date is July 1, 2020 The $10 transaction fee on cancellations has been waved through the end of May.

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

Tour #1 departs Soo Junction, MI at 10:30 AM and returns at 5:00 PM. Please arrive 30 minutes before departure to allow time to get your tickets and be seated.

Riveboat Hiawatha

Important notice: We will be starting this tour earlier than normal since the riverboat tour has been delayed until July 1st. Online ticket sales for June 15th through June 29th are not available yet. Once we are sure the governor isn't extending the stay at home order, we will make online ticket sales available. We are currently taking reservations over the phone for those dates. Covid-19 safety rules will be in place, so we expect to have a smaller carrying capacity and reservations are recommended.
