The boat is fairly small and creates an intimate experience, which is good. We took the 5p bridge tour and it takes you under the Mackinaw City side of the supported portion and then you come back under the suspension span. It's amazing to be so close and to go under the bridge! We got lots of great pictures from... More

We truly enjoyed seeing the sunset from the water as well as getting to see the Mackinac bridge from underneath. And the tour included bridge history and amazing bridge facts too. Truly an interesting trip as well as an AWESOME photo op. Don't forget your camera! The staff was friendly and helpful. We will be back!

We booked the tour not really knowing what to expect. We were pleased to see a boat big enough to fit about a dozen quests comfortably. They offered beverages for sale during the tour, although, It would have been nicer if they had included at least a free bottle of water. But the ride was nice. Captain told us historical... More

We kept Communications with Patty who was the Secretary for the cruises, there were issues with the weather and being windy, she kept us informed and when she thought it was the best time for me in my family to go. I thought that was excellent Communications that are really seen. We went out and had a great time, Chris... More

Our group of 22 enjoyed our ride under the bridge for a view from this unique perspective. Our group had Groupons to redeem and there was a problem with scanning one of them but it was resolved. The early ticket check in of 45 minutes prior to departure was a bit extreme considering there isn't a waiting area or even... More

Another photo is of the captain on the boat, and a couple of photos of the bridge ...that is a car going over the bridge as seen from under it!! Spread... More
