The 100-foot, 3-cabin passenger ferry provides service from Copper Harbor to Isle Royale National Park (Rock Harbor entrance) from mid-May through September. At the height of summer, the ferry makes a round-trip almost every day. Departure is at 8:00 am from Copper Harbor. The crossing time is 3 hours and 15 minutes in average sea conditions. Rock Harbor is the location of the Rock Harbor Lodge. the island's only hospitality facility, and the Rock Harbor Visitors Center, the main entrance to the national park. The Isle Royale Queen IV provides the fastest and most frequent service to the main entrance to the wilderness national park. 
The Isle Royale Queen IV also offers the tour many evenings in July and August. The 90-minute cruise tours the rugged Keweenaw coast and visits the Lake Superior shipping lanes when a huge Great Lakes ship is passing Copper Harbor. Departure approximately one hour before sunset.
