My husband, sister, 8 year old son and I took this tour over the weekend and really enjoyed it! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. It was our first experience seeing the bridge from that view. There were some interesting facts that kept my 8 year old thinking and watching the cars on the bridge was entertainment for him as... More

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.

We took the 5:00 cruise and tour. Staff was friendly and very knowledgeable a must for seeing the bridge. We even had a cold beer. It was a family friendly trip too. Bugs were bad but that was just bad timing on our part.

We decided to try out the Ugly Anne, taking the sunset cruise. So glad we did. The boat ride was fun, staff was super nice and the views were fantastic. We went in late May before the busy season so there were only three other couples on board. While cruising they give information about the area. They offer beer, wine,... More

Amazing experience. Seemed to be family owned, the lady who sold the tickets was a sweetheart, the captain, and gentleman giving information aboard the trip were very knowledgeable and likable. Amazing view of the sunset and bridge in a way that you have to see. They could have charged $50 a ticket and it would have been completely worth it.... More
