The Delaware Mine is an authentic mine that operated from 1847 until 1887, during the country’s first major mining boom. The mine was supported by a group of investors, including Horace Greeley. Although the mine didn’t make any money for its investors, it now serves as the perfect example of what the mines in this area were like in the 1800’s. Visitors to the Delaware Mine walk down 100 feet of stairs through the #1 shaft to the first level of the mine, then walk approximately 1700 feet through the original workings to experience a self-guided tour. The length of time the tour takes depends on the visitors’ interest level. Above ground are trails taking visitors past the ruins of two original mine buildings, equipment displays, antique engines, trains and animals. Picnic facilities are available, both above and below ground. A gift shop featuring locally made mementos and rock and mineral specimens is also available. Our very special pets are also featured in the gift shop. The Delaware Mine offers a very unique combination of entertainment and education that will intrigue every member of the family.

Isle Royale Queen IV
The Isle Royale Line, operator of the Isle Royale Queen IV ferry, has offered popular Sunset Cruises on Lake Superior since 1972. The cruise departs about an hour before sunset and sails onto open Lake Superior along the rugged coast of the Keweenaw Peninsula outside Copper Harbor. The ferry sails out to the famed Lake Superior shipping lanes on many nights to cruise alongside one of the massive ships that traverse Superior. Almost every evening, our beautiful north country summers give our visitors a spectacular sunset on the open lake, a thrilling view that becomes a lifetime memory. On select nights, we offer cruises to Manitou Island to view the two remote lighthouses on that beautiful, rocky isle swept by wind and wave.
