*The last trip with a pick-up option at McCargoe Cove or Belle Isle is September 11th. After that, you may choose to get dropped off at either of those locations, but you must have an alternate drop-off point in case weather forces the outbound trip to go along the south side of the island. 


Inter-island stop times are approximate.
Voyageur II may not stop at any docks other than Windigo and Rock Harbor unless there are reservations.
We strongly recommend that you make your reservations for both boats in advance, as they tend to fill up.


If you are planning to return using our service you are required to make your return reservation at the same time you make your outbound reservation.
