Most of the increases proposed before the public comment period opened will stay the same:

One-Way Child Fare: $40 (up from $35 in 2022) 

One-Way Boat (less than 18’01”) Fare: $125 (up from $100 in 2022) 

One-Way Boat (18’01” – 20’00”) Fare: $200 (up from $150 in 2022) 

Keweenaw Waterway Cruise Adult Fare: $36 (up from $30 in 2022) 

Keweenaw Waterway Cruise Child Fare: $18 (up from $15 in 2022) 

The following fares were adjusted after the public comment period: 

One-Way Canoe/Kayak Fare: $35 (originally proposed at $40; up from $30 in 2022) 

One-Way Oversized Canoe/Kayak Fare (>18 ft or 80 lbs): $70 (originally proposed at $80; up from $60 in 2022)
