We took the 10am cruise ....weather was sunny but cool. I opted to say inside the boat and my husband braved the upper deck to take photos. Unfortunately I sat on the side opposite of the good view on the first leg of the cruise....once we turned around and I was on the scenic side...the boat moved at a very... More

Great cruise and informative staff! The captain took care of us even during the rough waters we went out on and gave us the option to continue the cruise or turn around. So glad we were sailing with seaworthy people that day because it was an amazing sight and worth every bump and wave. Definitely well worth the trip.

While on a fall color tour, we decided to give Pictured Rocks Cruises a try. The 4:00 PM Spray Falls cruise was what we booked and it was truly worth every penny! We do professional photography and weren't disappointed by the views and close approaches that Captain Phil Miller provided for his passengers. It was a cool, crisp day with... More

A must if you are visiting Munising and want to see the Pictured Rocks from the water. The cruise is about 2 1/2 hours and is well worth it. The staff is friendly and super knowledgeable of the different areas of Pictures Rocks as well as the history of the area.

This is the best way to see the beautiful rocks and shoreline. We had completely calm waters and the captain took us in close to rocks. The crew were friendly and helpful, and this was totally as bargain way to see this natural beauty.

We took the sunset cruise because of all the good reviews. We got there around 4:40pm for the 5:15 cruise and the line was loooong! The top was packed and I heard that you should get the top right of the boat for pictures (which was the main reason for me taking the cruise). Well, I decided to go downstairs... More

This was a nice tour. Crew was friendly. Depending on when you take the tour be prepared for a chilly ride. We went on October 6th. Going out was not bad but when the boat turned to return, it was windy and very chilly (almost cold). Sit on the right side of the boat. As you head out, the crew... More

There are some fantastic views that can only be seen from the lake. This cruise shows those views and the narrative from staff adds something extra. The cruise goes about 75 minutes out to Lake Superior, then does a 180 coming back. This means you can be on either side of the boat and you'll geta good view going or... More

The only way to really see what this park is about is out on the water from a boat. There are several tours daily and more than one boat--when one boat is on its way back, another is on its way out. Here's are some tips: Get in line EARLY if you want to get the best seats for pictures--those... More

We wanted to do a color tour and see the Pictured Rocks. We truly enjoyed our tour, which included the Spray Falls. Due to very dry conditions, the spray wasn't very heavy, but overall it was a terrific tour, well worth the price. We did purchase our tickets ahead of time, which I recommend. The tour guide was fun and... More
