We went on the noon cruise and it was perfect! We picked pretty decent day for the weather, but I would have gone regardless. The boat captain was fantastic. He really described all the different formations and colors each time we passed something new. Next time we are back we will definitely be doing the sunset cruise. I can't imagine... More

So glad we picked up tickets early as the cruise sold out. We arrived about an hour and a half early for the "first come, first served" seating on this very picturesque and scenic cruise. Standing for nearly an hour to get seating on the top deck, right hand side was worth it and gave us lots of time to... More

Hubby had never been to Pictured Rocks before and it had been over 30 years since I had been there. We had planned our vacation around doing this cruise and were very excited to see these beautiful rock formations. Unfortunately, due to inclement weather (5 foot waves!), we had to postpone our planned late-afternoon cruise for two days. On our... More

We went on the noon cruise which gives better lighting on the rocks than the morning shadows. It is a great cruise anytime but your pictures will be sharper

Be sure visit this location when the sun is bright. It really brings out the colors. The Boat captain was so great in describing the source of the colors and the formations. We really got up close to some of the rocks.

This 2.5 hour cruise was a great way to see the highlights of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The crew were knowledgable, the commentary humorous and filled with interesting info on what we were seeing. Getting in close to the shoreline also gave everyone great photo opportunities.

This tour is well-worth the money spent. The captain gave great historical relevance to the rock formations. We did the sunset tour and it was breath taking. The captain took the boat very close the rocks and even into an alcove that domed over us. Many opportunities for great pictures. There were plenty of seats above and below deck.
