Definitely a must if you want to get the best view and pictures of the rocks. Get there early so you can sit on the top. We got stuck on the lower deck which is inside with Windows but we were able to walk to the back of the boat for pictures but had to fight for space. Captain was... More

We usually rent our own pontoon to cruise the Rocks, but this time the water was too rough. Luckily, Pictured Rocks Cruises were still able to go out. All of the guys, from the ticket guy to the deckhands, to the captain were very accommodating. They were even handing out sponges and paper towels so that we could dry off... More

We took friends from Europe to Pictured Rocks. It was a last stop on their visit to the US. They thoroughly enjoyed the natural beauty. I believe it is one of the most beautiful areas to see in the MidWest. The tour boats are the best way to see the sights. Safe, clean boats with friendly staff. I look forward... More

Pictured Rocks is beautiful & the Pictured Rocks Cruises does a good job on their tour. Sit on the right side (we sat on top & had great views & a wonderful breeze even though it was about 85 degrees), they go slower & explain more on the way out. On the return the left side of the boat is... More

This is well worth the money! Make sure you get on the on the boat early to either get on the top deck, or to get an open window. If you take pictures from the closed window you get a reflection. I talked to a lady who had her own boat and she said she would reccomend taking the cruise... More

It is best to get tickets online before you go, we did. Had tickets for 2:00, got there at 1:00 and we're sold out for the 2:00 and 5:00. It is best to get there a good hour before as they start lining up early. It is first come first serve on seats so everyone wants the top. It is... More

My fiancée and I were thrilled with this tour! Best $80 spent on our UP vacation. We went out on a Tuesday at 5:00 pm. Nearly 2 hours of breathtaking views - absolutely unbelievable. Best views were from the second level, back of the boat in the center - had EXCELLENT photo access both on the way out and back... More

We went on the 11am Spray Falls Cruise today and it was amazing. The captain gave a great tour and handles that big boat with ease. It was a great experience to that I would recommend to everyone and hope to repeat again someday.

This was an absolutely amazing trip. My husband and I typically try to travel cheap, or travel to the destinations ourselves, there is no way this would have been enjoyable on a kayak the whole way. Our captain was Leo and he was so funny.as weel.as educational. This trip, was so worth the money.

Do not miss this informative, beautiful natural wonder and 2 12/ hour boat ride. Bring your camera. But your tickets online or at the venue. However you get there, it is a must see.
