You could explore new places on your own, but you’d miss out on so much! Take a Private Tour with me and up to 6 passengers and learn more about our unique area from a knowledgeable and professional Captain/ Tour Guide. Rent the entire vessel and the Captain for 50 minutes. You can choose to take a private historical tour or just a nice relaxing boat ride. Why not both?! Book 2 Consecutive Tours for $312 and get an extra 10 minutes for free at 1 Hr 50 minutes!! (Excluding the Twilight Tour in combination)
I will be happy to answer any questions during your tour regarding our area or play music of your choice. An ice chest and refrigerator are available so please feel free to bring your own beer or wine (no glass bottles, please). We have non-alcoholic beverages available for purchase as well.
(*Reminder, this is an electric boat with a max speed of 6 mph and a limited range.)
1 Hour Twilight Tour 🎇 For sunset ☀️tours please check when the sun is setting and choose the private or historical tour.
$30 per person
Every day should end with a grand finale and the last tour of the evening is exactly that! What better way to explore the Portage Canal than with a 1 hour Twilight tour to unwind at the end of your day! Feel free to send us music suggestions to play while you watch the soft glowing light from the sky fadeaway as the sun is below the horizon, caused by the refraction and scattering of the sun's rays from the atmosphere on the Keweenaw Waterway. While we whisp into the night you'll see the stars glisten on the water as the bridge and city lights add a magnificent light show.
I will be happy to answer any questions regarding our area or you can just just relax and absorb the beauty of the canal. While we do have non-alcoholic beverages to purchase, you are invited to bring your own beer or wine (no glass bottles, please.) An ice chest and refrigerator are available to keep your drinks cold while the sunset warms your soul.

About Copper Country Boat Tours
Top-Rated Tour Guide
Take a Portage Canal tour with us aboard the SS Dragonfly! Our Duffy electric boat is emission free and quiet, which means no fumes or loud engine noises. Join us and breathe in the fresh air of the beautiful Keweenaw Peninsula and kick up your feet while an experienced Captain/ Tour Guide takes you on a tour. Our Historical Tour will take you into the past, teaching you about the vast historical importance of the Copper Country and the Portage Canal or choose our Sunset/ Twilight Tour and watch the sun go down while relaxing on our beautiful canal. We also give you the option to rent the vessel for a private tour. We have soda and water available for purchase, but please feel free to bring your own beer or wine (no glass bottles, please).
The Dragonfly is made to seat 12 but we are considered an uninspected passenger vessel (OUPV) which means this vessel for hire is only allowed to take six passengers at a time (including children). Lucky for you, this means plenty of elbow room! Our boat is also equipped with a surrey canvas and side windows for those not so perfect days to keep you warm and dry so you can join us anytime- rain or shine!
