Isle Royale Queen Reservations - Filling up

Post by paulbates » Tue Apr 10, 2018 9:59 am

This is from Captain Ben from the Isle Royale Queen FB pages

"Folks: We want to give you a heads up about getting reservations. We promise you: we're not playing any tricks here to get your business. But here's the thing. We have taken a lot of reservations so far this year. A number of days have already filled up or are close to filling up completely. If you have specific days you want to go to Isle Royale, get your plans together and make your reservations. People are always shocked when they can't call up a week ahead and get to Isle Royale in July and August. Capt Ben and Miranda"

Also just booked my trip for the first boat. There's 50+ seats still open, and even more on the return trip. I'm really glad I'm going when I am because I would love to avoid crowds.

Been booked on the first boat for quite a while. BUT, I've got 30" of ice in front of my place here on Northern Lake Huron. Will the first boat run? Any thoughts?

A lot can change in 5 weeks! I think yes it runs.

The island opens next week.
