If you plan to visit Mackinaw City take time to book a cruise on the Ugly Anne, you won't regret it. There are very few... More

Had a lovely evening, sunset cruise. The staff; family of three, are very knowledgeable about the boat, bridge and local trivia. This is a must do! Ugly Anne takes you under the Mackinaw Bridge for some amazing photos.

Excellent boat ride! We took the sunset cruise, and it was a perfect way to end the day. The staff was friendly and warm, and made the trip very enjoyable. Where else can you see the bottom of the Mackinac Bridge?!

We did the 5pm tour under the Mackinaw Bridge. We got some awesome pictures, and a very informative tour. The two gentlemen on the boat knew their stuff. They had lots of history and information about the area, the bridge, and everything in between! A great tour!

We took the 5pm cruise (about an hour long) our first evening in Mackinaw, and it was just lovely. The boat, a Maine lobster boat, went all the way around the island and under the Mackinac Bridge. Great views, great crew, and helpful folks! Enjoyed it thoroughly.
