Tonya Kevin are amazing hosts and flexible. They will work with you to make your cruise so special. They very accommodating. Tonia sent me a gift certificate vis email to put in a card for my mother in law’s birthday. We gifted this cruise to her for her 65th birthday which was a couple weeks before our trip to
Manistee. The sunset cruise was so relaxing and Tonya even gave us tour information about all the sites on the lake. Highly, highly recommend InnFun Cruises.

From start to finish this boat ride was incredible!!! Tonya & Kevin are top notch people. The boat is incredibly beautiful, they serve snacks from local restaurants, and the ride comes complete with so much knowledge of local history from Tonya.
We were in Manistee celebrating a friend's 50th and this trip did NOT disappoint. Such fun people, they even turned the music up so we could sing along! Thank you both so much for a boat ride we will be talking about for years to come!!!

Inn Fun Cruises was great to work with! Tonya and Kevin personalized our trip from the time we departed until we docked. The snacks were delicious, it was easy to find and Tonya and Kevin are so knowledgeable about Manistee. It was so great to meet them and our group definitely thinks the boat ride was the best part of our trip!

.We took a two hour private tour and learned a lot about the local area and history while eating delicious snacks. The weather even allowed us to head into lake Michigan. Our hosts were so accommodating

Our two hour cruise with Kevin and Tonya was fantastic. We were looking for a way to tour Manistee and could there be a better way than on someone else's boat!?

We sat topside and enjoyed snacks and the views. Tonya gave us history and stories about the area while Kevin drove the boat.

Beautiful area and great experience. Thank you!

We had the best time on the water with our hosts Tonya and Keith. The told us some of the history of the Manistee river and lake. Gorgeous night for a ride. The sunset was amazing. It felt like being on a boat with friends. Great people, great boat. I can’t wait to go again.

After viewing the live news reports about Inn Fun Cruises in Manistee on “Michigan This Morning 9 & 10 News”, we were very excited to give this new entertainment / touring option a try. After our experience yesterday afternoon, we are SO happy that we did. It was a great experience and we highly recommend it.

Manistee has lots of opportunities for people who are interested in charter fishing trips. However, this is Manistee’s first boat charter attraction that is solely focused on touring and relaxation out on the water. The charter operation is run by Kevin and Tonya, and it was fun to spend an afternoon with such pleasant and hospitable people.

They are very motivated to give their guests a fun and safe experience. During our two-hour cruise, the winds (and waves) increased to the point that Manistee Lake would be a better experience (versus Lake Michigan). We had a great time touring areas that we had not previously seen. Just to get a flavor of the conditions on Lake Michigan, we also made our way through the choppy waters out to the end of the North Pier for a close-up of the lighthouse. That gave us a full appreciation for the touring choice made by Kevin – thank you.

Tonya provided lots of interesting and enjoyable info about the river channel, the various bridges, the tourist attractions surrounding us, and the various industrial sites on Manistee Lake. Her narration added a lot to our experience, and it was greatly appreciated.

We knew that our charter experience would include some snacks. However, we were thrilled to see the quality of those snacks. They included Natural Northern whitefish pate, Taco Bout It salsa, and Wee Bee Jammin’s Cherry Cherry Bang Bang. An hour later we had a dessert selection – featuring some of the best sweets from Daily Bakehouse. We were thrilled with this fantastic selection of delicious products!

As we prepared to conclude our experience, they handed us a souvenir backpack with coupons and special offers from a variety of local merchants. This was such a thoughtful way to encourage us to visit local shops!

We are thoroughly happy with this new addition to the Manistee community, and we encourage you try it. Tours can either be during the day, or at sunset. They can host up to six guests, and they are conveniently located on the Manistee River channel directly behind Taco Bout It. Give it a try; you’ll enjoy it!
