There are four passenger ferries that provide service to and from Isle Royale National Park. As Isle Royale is a desiginated wilderness, there are no car ferries. All transportation options have different fares and schedules; reservations are strongly recommended. Services do fill up, especially in the peak season from late-July through mid-August. Make your reservation as soon as your travel dates are firm.
