We took the Sunset Cruise and had an absolute blast. You cannot imagine what the Pictured Rocks actually look like until to go past them! The tour guide was fun and informative. We felt it was a bit pricey. But we don't regret going at all!

We had a picture perfect day..........fantastic for September, which I think is the best time on the UP. I would suggest you get in line early, as is recommended. People lined up an hour ahead of the cruise departure time. They did take out two boats so everyone could be on top or on the bottom. The captain and crew... More

2 boats went out at 5:45pm. Desk said it's a popular time for photographers to go - which makes sense since the sun is working it's magic on the rock face. That being said, people who think they are "photographers" can be extremely rude. They won't move so someone can get the shot. It was particularly brisk out on Lake... More

Terrific value. Great narration. Comfortable cruise. Rocks are spectacular! Captain got us so close to the rock formations. We hit great pictures!

Excellent tour we never would of had views like this without being on the water. Crew was extremely professional and considerate. ( and kind of goofy/funny:) if you are in this area this is a must! Time went by very fast.

We did the cruise on our last day in the area before heading home. I'm so glad we did! We got to see all the views that we couldn't while hiking. The tour guide did a wonderful job. He was informative and funny. The staff was friendly. I recommend this cruise to everyone!

We did the Pictured Rocks Cruise during the week, and both boats that went when we were scheduled were about 3/4 full. We were unable to sit on top and experience the full effect, but the view from within the main cabin was still pretty good, and we could stand outside on the back deck and take in the breeze,...

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is a great national park. But its most spectacular views are from the water. The colored cliffs and caves that extend from Lake Superior's waters up to the trees with a blue sky above form breathtaking scenery. The cruise lasts about 2.5 hours, and it is narrated by the cruise staff and a National Park Ranger... More

What a beautiful way to see the amazing cliffs of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. I have two tips. 1) take the sunset tour to see the cliffs really come alive and glow with the sunset. 2) If the boat is crowded and you have to choose a seat to stay in the whole ride, sit on the left side. you...

My family did the sunset cruise along the pictured rocks. It was about 2 1/2 hour ride and every minute was enjoyable. Definitely sit on top and on the right side to get the best views and get there early. It got chilly as the sun went down even in the middle of summer so dress warmly. There were sodas... More
