This was our 3rd time on this cruise, but, first time for sunset cruise. Despite not the greatest weather, Capt Chris made it exciting and we saw the most beautiful sunset and even a rainbow! Highly recommend this trip to everyone!

The sunset cruise is the best! Our captain Chris was awesome and gave us the opportunity for capturing stunning sunset and bridge photos. Tom was informative and gave us a history of the area. And Pat was so nice and took good care of everyone. We were extremely pleased with the entire experience. Highly recommend!

Just took our 2nd Ugly Anne Sunset Cruise...it was wonderful! This is a must do for anyone coming to Mackinaw City. It is a family run business and they treat each person like gold! Treatment like you receive at Ugly Anne is unheard of anymore!! From Mom at the ticket window, Capt Chris, and the deck hand... Everyone is fantastic!... More
