It is a beautiful and pleasant ride. It was a smooth process starting with purchasing the tickets to getting on the boat. The crew was friendly and efficient and the captain's narration and diescription enhanced the exerience. A must see.

Very nice experience. Beautiful view. The first half was very good as we were looking at the rocks for the first time.. But the return journey was little boring and long as they take through the same route. But overall a good experience and must do if you are in the area.

We took the boat tour and really enjoyed the trip. The Pictured Rocks are a gem and a must see for people. We were there on a calm day and the trick went as planned. Try to sit on the right side of the boat.

If you make your way to the upper peninsula of Michigan, your visit is not complete until you've taken a cruise along the Pictured Rocks. We had a great day with Capt. Belko and the crew. Lots of information is dispensed, mixed with snappy groaners.

We did the sunset cruise and it was wonderful. We learned so much about the area from the crew who were extremely knowledgeable. I would do this again if I came back.

Boat tour was fine. The views were best on the return trip around 6pm when the sun shone on the rock formations. The captain could have mentioned more about Native American lore and legends, like how Hiawatha came to form the Pictured Rocks or how important Grand Island was in Native American history instead of saying that nothing was going...

you must take the cruises if you come here, especially if you aren't able to hike. we hiked in the morning and took the cruise later in the day. It was great to see it all from two different views

It's the only way to appreciate the lakeshore. The crew was great and very informative. Definitely a must while visiting the area.
