Taking a ride on the dunes schooner is an adventure worth taking. It is suitable for all ages, and all will enjoy it. The views are spectacular, and the guidance tell interesting stories about the near and distant history of the place. Sometimes it's a little cheesy, but if you're in the area I recommend it.

We go on these dune rides every year and still enjoy them. The history of the area is interesting and the dune buggies go surprisingly fast. I would recommend the dune ride and make sure to bring your camera. The drivers will take a picture of your group at the top of the dunes.

Not from the area but have lived here long enough to say we are locals...... going to the Dune Rides is a must when visiting Lake MI/Saugatuck. It's a great reminder of the beauty of the dunes and the Lake and educates you on the history of the area. We were the only 2 people on the "ride" and had... More

Exceeded expectations, was a ton of fun. Really fun, scenic, and learned some interesting history of the area. Well worth the time and money.

My friends and I had a blast on this tour. The vehicles go a lot faster than I thought they would, which made more exciting. A few cheesy moments but that's what makes it more fun for children. I would recommend heading over to do this tour if you're in the area.

It was like doing an outdoor amusement ride. My wife and I had a blast doing this. It was educational, exciting and entertaining. Some might not like the dry humor of the driver but we enjoyed it. And there were some great views. We sat in the back row and had a great time. It was a little bumpy and... More

How to describe? A fast paced, humorous and informative ride through the sand dunes. The ride was a blast, the driver kept as laughing when he wasn't educating us and the entire route was filled with little extras to keep you smiling. Definitely worth the ride!

The ride is fun, informative and has great views. Lots of fun for all ages. If you have back trouble sit in the front because the back is bumpy. But we all enjoyed it and would definitely do it again with my husband who couldn't make it.

Get here early as rides book up fast. We stopped in about 2:00 p.m. and the next available ride was at 7:00 p.m. It worked out wonderfully because it was a hot day. Spending time out walking around at the observation areas in the hot sun and on the hot sand would be miserable. Leaving out at 7:00 p.m. when... More

Very fun dune ride for the whole family. Jokes where a little cheesy but entertaining. The views were very good of the dunes and Lake Michigan. They let you get out walk in the sand and take pictures. The history of the area was very interesting.
