Waterfalls Update

April 28, 2021

It has been a spectacular waterfall season on the North Shore so far and it keeps getting better! The spring season started off rather dry to the point where we were under fire danger warnings for a little while. Around mid-April, the weather turned and we had a full week of rain. The steady rain melted all remaining snow and got the rivers to really begin to run. Since then, the inland lakes have also opened up which adds even more water. The waterfalls are now flowing at their full glory and we expect they will continue to be spectacular through May.

The unique geologic formations along the North Shore allow visitors to witness breathtaking waterfalls ranging from the highest in Minnesota – the 120-foot High Falls at Grand Portage State Park (pictured above) — to raging falls right in Bluefin Bay’s back yard. If you’ve never experienced our spring waterfalls, it’s truly a sight to be seen, heard and felt.

Earth Day Clean-up

April 13, 2021

As Earth Day approaches and the spring snow melts, one can’t help but feel the need to spruce things up a bit. While it’s nice to get things pretty for the upcoming season, it’s also rewarding to give back to the community.

Adopt a highway

One event that the crew at Bluefin Bay Family of Resorts looks forward to every year is our annual highway clean-up! Bluefin Bay has been apart of the Adopt a Highway program since 1990. That means that every year for the last 31 years, Bluefin Bay staff have taken time to clean the section of highway that runs through the town of Tofte.

This year was no exception. The crew had a great time and we rewarded ourselves with pizza from Coho Café afterwards.

Wedding & Events Update

April 7, 2021

It goes without saying that it’s been a tricky 12 months for wedding and event planners. Because of all of the confusion of this past year, we wanted to post an update on what the Bluefin Bay Family of Resorts is currently planning in regards to events. In everything we do, the health and safety of our resort guests, staff and the community remains our top priority.

We’ll start by saying that our hearts go out to all of the couples that are navigating this pandemic while trying to plan their very special day. We have been doing our best to offer clear and consistent communication to our already booked wedding couples, but we know that it hasn’t been easy for you. Bluefin Bay Wedding
