Water Taxi & Private Tour FAQs

Are dogs welcome on the boat?

Yes, the water taxi is the only boat we allow dogs on. Please consult the National Park Service website for restrictions when bringing a dog onto one of the Apostle Islands. We do not provide life jackets for dogs.

Can we bring food or drinks on board?

Yes, you are more than welcome to bring anything you would like to eat or drink, including alcohol. We have a cooler on the boat.

What if it rains?

As with any boating trip, be prepared to get a little wet. We do have a bimini top on the boat to keep rain out. The Captain will make the determination to cancel a trip due to severe weather.

Can we bring a kayak or canoe?

Yes, depending on size, we can usually carry up to two single or two double kayaks. We can carry one canoe (without kayaks), however, we strongly recommend not bringing a canoe into the Apostle Islands. Weather can change very rapidly.

Do you rent kayaks?

No, we do not rent kayaks. However, there are several rental businesses nearby.
