The only way to enjoy the view of pictured rocks is through the boat cruise. We took the sunset cruise which is phenomenal. Captain Joe is very informative and very nice. Awesome crew!! We will be back soon!!

This was a trip we'll never forget. The people were so friendly. The captain and guide of the boat was super friendly and funny! The crew was helpful to those that were seasick. The people in the gift shop/ticket store were very nice too. Clean bathroom also!

The only way to see the " Pictured Rocks" is by boat and this narrated tour, somewhat expensive (only a 100 day season) is thorough, amusing and professionally done. Boats are comfortable and travel close enough to shore to see what it's all about. Big enough vessel so waves should not be a problem and you can ride on top... More

This trip is way too long! The cliffs are beautiful and all, and I love scenery, but this goes on for 11 miles of what is basically the exact same thing over and over. They say the ride back is not the best time to take pictures because we would be going faster, if only that were the case. My... More

Took the trip a week ago. The weather was beautiful... The rocks were phenomenal I loved it. Stunning reallly. However the sheer beauty was over shadowed by the rude behavior of Captain Phil. He told a story involving Native Americans that I found offensive and I can't believe that the NPS has approved. He used the loud speaker to talk... More

This was the center-point of the 2 day trip my friend and I recently took to the Munising area in the UP. We were told by a friend that this was one of the best ways to experience the Pictured Rocks and were not disappointed. Its located right on docks near downtown and there was plenty of parking (they have... More

Basically I am going to give you the good and bad of this boat tour so you know what type of things to expect and honestly think we would have had more fun. Be EARLY! I would suggest at least 45 mins early. We took a 10 am trip and got there about 9:20 and we still had a huge... More

This is located in the UP of Michigan. I will tell you now you will not be disappointed. This is our third trip there. Each time we have taken different people, and each of them are so surprised how great it is. It is just something you don't expect when you get on board. There are a couple of different... More

Everyone is super friendly, will answer any question for you and they are happy to have you aboard! They allow you to bring snacks or drinks. They do sell sodas and water for $1. The cruise is the best way to see Pictured Rocks. It is an amazing time and the three hours flew by so fast!
