We recently went on this tour as a part of a weekend celebration. We thoroughly enjoyed the informational tour and sights from the harbor. You can combine this with a meal at Stafford's Pier Restaurant. In fact, you can bring your drinks and food on the boat. A nice hour spent on the water.

Took the harbor tour with two other couples on the Pointer with Captain Dave on Wednesday, August 7. Everyone enjoyed his history lessons and the boat was nice to ride on. Afterwards we had a delicious dinner at the Pier. An enjoyable afternoon in Harbor Springs!

Last night a group of friends went on the Pointer boat after the delicious dinner at the Pier Restaurant. Captain Dave Crowley and first mate Parker made this experience truly amazing. To hear the history and see the homes on Harbor Point was a once in a lifetime experience. They were both so engaging and a blast to be around. Definitely bring your camera & the photo ops will not disappoint.

We went on a 5 o’clock boat ride. We were able to get some appetizers from the restaurant and a bottle of wine. We had a fabulous time. Captain David and certainly his first mate were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. What a wonderful way to spend an evening.

Hi NB, I am sorry but the trip is one hour and 15 minutes. It is a history tour of the area if you wish or a party by yourselves.. I have never had a negative review unless it was weather related, which, we claim to be good, but not that good. Were you rained out, leave late, waiting for other guests. Please let me know, jody@staffords.com
