A trip aboard one of the park's tour boats offers an excellent opportunity to witness the wildlife that inhabits the park, to see examples of the area geology, and to enjoy the sounds of the water as you glide past the park’s beautiful scenery. Visit historic sites such as the Kettle Falls Hotel, or Little American Island, that are only accessible by boat.
Tour boats depart from the Rainy Lake Visitor Center and the Kagetogama Lake Visitor Center, primarily during the months of June through September. Tour availability and schedules change during the course of the summer, so please visit the park’s website for the latest information. Reservations are recommended.
