Sunset Aboard Ugly Anne

We had a beautiful sunset cruise aboard Ugly Anne. Captain Chris takes you for a ride under the bridge several times so you can take memorable pictures. Very memorable!

My husband and I enjoyed the tour immensely! We were booked for the bridge tour but because we were the only two they moved us to the sunset tour. However, this worked out well because they did a bridge tour and the sunset tour! Lovely ride with a pleasant and informative crew. A pleasure doing business with them! We will... More

We went out on the Sunset Tour under the Mackinac Bridge.They take you out on a retired lobster boat and go along the shore under the bridge. The views of the lake, bridge and sunset are amazing. It does get a little choppy our their but they... More

Such a nice relaxing boat ride. Great photo opportunities. The Lake was pretty calm considering the wind. We took the sunset tour. Our driver was very helpful pointing out photo ops and stopping or slowing for me to take shots.We had a small group since it was a Monday night.It was the first thing we did after getting in town...

This was one of the better parts of our vacation. This tour is family friendly and they refuse to raise their rates because they want to keep it affordable for families. The crew is very friendly and knowledgeable.

Saw a Groupon for this and I am glad we did because we had no idea about this fairly new business. Took my parents tonight and we had a great time. Even though we are from the area we learned new things and it was more exciting than going on a large ferry boat under the Bridge. The trip went... More

Took the sunset cruise on Labor Day. It was truly the highlight of our trip. This family run business is a dying breed and this family is awesome!! They absolutely care about every person that boards their boat. Not only was it fun but it was informative too! There were 11 of us on the sunset cruise and that was... More

Great small family tour business! This was the highlight of our trip. They took us under the Mackinac Bridge and provided lots of great information. We tried to do the Sheplers cruise but it only departs from the island. If you're staying in Mackinac City you must go on the 5:00 history tour with Ugly Anne. Very charming and a... More

We are locals, blessed to live in the Mackinaw Straits area. We have many friends and family that stop by or ask for recommendations, and the Ugly Annie is always a must do.
