This cruise is great, well organized, punctual, and the rock formations are amazingly beautiful. You have your choice of seating inside the cabin or outside. We were here in June and took the 6 PM tour (to go further and sea Spray Falls). It was chilly with wind, so be prepared with hats, blanket, maybe even light gloves. No summer... More

Don't miss this tour! It's worth seeing at least once in your life. Boats are clean and safe, the crew is friendly and helpful, we had a park ranger aboard that gave a talk about the park. It was fun!

We were thinking of bypassing this tour to just hike the whole day, but friends persuaded us to take the tour, and we are really glad that we did. The 2 1/2 hour tour gave stunning views of the coastline of Pictured Rocks. The crew was knowledgeable and skilled. We took the noon tour, and the sun angle was especially... More

The tour itself was fantastic. It is a definite must do. I have always lived in Michigan and I am 45 and this was my first trip to Pictured Rocks. Very beautiful. The only thing I wish would have been different is they tell parents not too let kids run up and down the aisle wasn't enforced and they also... More

Awesome views, some of the spots where worth the money. Did sunset cruise , whether was perfect, but make sure you have some warm clothes as it will get cold. If you want to sit on the top make sure you reach by 45 to 30 min ahead of your trip. But below deck is not bad with large windows.

Again, I have wanted to stop here for years and we finally took the time to enjoy this wonderful excursion. The boat crew were great and we learned a lot about the area and were just blown away by the artistic brush that Mother Nature has!

There is a reason this is the #1 attraction. The Pictured Rocks are beautiful. The tour was terrific. As other writers have said, bring a jacket, good captain, lots of information. What I found astounding was how close we got to the shore. At one point we could literally reach out and touch the stone. Our captain took us into... More

What wasn't to like? It was a little cool still in June- we did the evening cruise, but you just bundle up. Captain was very knowledgeable, gave us lots of details about what we were seeing, took plenty of time so that everyone on board could see and take pictures. The scenery is unrivaled! Some of the pictures I took... More

I highly recommend this narrated tour of the Pictured Rocks to see many of the features you could not possibly see just by visiting the drive up vantage points or by walking the trails. Take the Spray Falls tour if possible as you get to see all the attractions. The trip was close to 3 hours and well worth the... More
