Great piece of natural history with layers of stories from the past. It is a must see!! Breathtaking! See it from the water for the best view!

Over the years, we have visited this scenic park numerous times. We have backpacked the trails, taken the boat ride, gone day hiking, and created many memories. We’ve experienced the National Lakeshore in every season (winter is a fantasyland). On our most recent trip, we only had a few hours to spend at the east end (near Grand Marais) but... More

Taking a kayak tour to see the Pictured Rocks is really the only way to fully experience the beauty of the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. There are a number of kayaking outfitters that have tours available. I highly recommend viewing them this way rather than by boat. By boat, you really don't get a chance to fully take in the... More

The tour was fantastic and I loved the humor of the fella talking over the intercom. Very worthwhile!

If you're in Munising this a must see - there is certainly no better way to see the pictured rocks then by boat. The guide was entertaining, P.A. system was good, and the boat comfortable. Arrive early if you want to sit on top of the cruise. On a side note, if you plan on hiking the trails, be sure... More

Those rocks are so amazingly beautiful! Must-see! I have never seen anything look like this before! Absolutely worth the driving! And the price for the 2.5 hr cruise is just $34! What a deal! I hope I would do the kayaking for next time!

This was my 3rd time visiting Munising since 2004, but I had never been on the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore Boat Tour until this visit. I can say that I don't know why I didn't do this sooner! It was absolutely amazing. The rock formations are so beautiful along this shoreline. The narrator of the tour was knowledgeable and had... More

I have seen pictured rocks in the past but as I realized the rock formations change over time. It was absolutely magnificent!! Do not miss if in the area. A boat tour is the best way.

The Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is absolutely gorgeous. We took a 2.5 hr cruise that not only showed us a lot of great spots as well as provided a lot of interesting facts. The next day, we also went kayaking and it was a lot of fun. There are a ton of things to do, so overall the trip was... More
