Guided Boat Tours on Rainy Lake
All Voyageur and Otter tour boat reservations are now handled by Reserve America. Advance reservations can now be made up to 3 months in advance either online or by telephone. Please see the tour boat reservation page for more information about this new system.
Low Water Levels
The park may operate the Borealis tour boat in place of the Voyageur when low water levels do not permit the use of the Voyageur.
