Fantastic view of Pictured Rocks

Incredible views, great commentator, worth the price. Another great way is to kayak along the rocks which we did.

I went on an afternoon tour with my family and we choose to sit in the front, top, left (port) side of the boat. Unfortunately, the left (port) side of the boat was the wrong side of the boat to choose to get clear views, and especially bad for taking pictures. They only do the tour of the rocks on... More

I booked this cruise about 3 weeks in advance, and I chose the 4pm Spray Falls cruise. We were staying in St. Ignace, and it took us about 2 hours to get to Munising. I called at 8am the day of our cruise to check with them to make sure it wasn't canceled (their website said to call ahead about... More

Due to really bad weather and lake conditions, our trip had to be cancelled. The office contacted us in a timely manner and offered us options to consider for rescheduling the tour and getting a full refund. I have highly recommend this company for their professionalism and service alone. Unfortunately, we were not able to complete a cruise due to... More

This was more amazing that I had imagined. The weather wasn't exactly cooperating (overcast, gray, occasional drizzle) but the crew was great, the captain(?) was funny (assuming you like dry humor), capable, and knowledgeable. The rocks themselves were just more -more than expected. I just didn't think that they would be as spectacular as they were. Seeing them from the... More

The staff were very attentive, polite, and knew their facts! My husband and I had a great time on this cruise, most of which was spent on the back deck taking in the sights. We arrived 30 minutes before our cruise, and there was already a line. I would recommend arriving early to make sure you get a seat outside,... More

Very great cruises touring! The views are beautiful. They will go back with the same route therefore no matter which side of the cruise you sit, you can see the view very clear.

The only way to really get to see the pictured rocks is a boat cruise - the narrator did a wonderful job both factual and entertaining. The rest of the staff appeared to be uninterested only greeting us when leaving the boat and hoping for a tip.

My wife and I visited the U.P. in Oct. 2016 and we took the Pictured Rock Cruise tour. Needless to say, during the month of October it can get a little chilly in upper Michigan. It was suggested that we ride on the top deck because the view would be worth it. The office staff warned us that it would... More

I knew Pictured Rocks Cruise (PRC) was an amazing experience as I've seen this breathtaking natural attraction and had ridden PRC before. Today, however, I was reminded how well cared for visitors are at PRC. They care about everyone's experience and will always do right by their guests. Every interaction I had with staff showed they know and deliver high... More
