We had a nice water front cruise. Very relaxing and informative. We had great weather. The only downfall was they pushed down your throat to get snacks, drinks, etc.. Way too much! Not sure if it was really worth $22 each, seemed to go way to fast.

This is the second time we have done a Lake Superior cruise with Vista Fleet. Both times, we have felt it was well worth the price; however, the food is just not that good. In my opinion, it is NOT worth it to do a pizza or other food cruise. Just go on one of the regular sight-seeing cruises and... More

Employees in the gift shop were very informative. One lady at the information Center wasn't too eager to talk to people. Liz, who narrated our tour did a great job. She was so enthusiastic about her job! She definitely made our trip better.

Un-organized from the start. Jammed in like Sardines. Food was just so-so. NO narration. Don't waste your money,

Highly recommend, this was my favorite part of our trip.... We went on the pizza tour... Bad things: we didn't get much pizza and the drinks were expensive... But the views out weighed those for me... Oh, and bring a jacket :). Courteous knowledgeable staff. I'm certainly gonna be a repeat customer!!

We did the hour and 45 minute tour. After reading other reviews we decided against one of the meal cruises - there are a lot of great places to eat by Canal Park, and it makes sense to go to one of these instead. The trip was good, the narration was fine. We didn't board early enough to start on... More

we book ticket for 5 people and we are there at the right time. But the cruise left early and we talk to the manager at the shop and she is kind of rude behavior. No refund nothing. No return policy or anything like that.We never recommend anybody for this cruise.

Our captain Cory did a nice job. Only a little time spent out on the lake, majority of time spent in the canal. But very interesting and informative. Cory was funny and sure knew his facts! Probably not the best tour for young children.
