This was our second time taking this tour and I have to say it was much better than the first time. We took the Spray falls tour and they use a larger catamaran that they have now. Much nicer boat as the ride was faster and smoother.

A 21/2 hour cruise to view the magnificent Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Well worth the time. The boat crew was very informative and friendly.

This is a best way to view the Pictured Rocks. We arrived on a cloudy, drizzly day wanting to go on the 2:00 cruise. They assured us that it was clearing off out on the water, and they were exactly right. Although not a sunny day, the waters were very calm and it was only chilly as the boat sped... More

We boarded a triple decker for the Spray Falls cruise. Traveling with my Mother who is in a wheel chair - the staff was VERY accommodating. It is quite a walk on the dock to the boat and they provide a ride on a golf cart for those who can not walk that far. Plenty of room on the lower... More

We took the sunset cruise. It was chilly and choppy but really didn't notice. The narration was nice and gave us some chuckles. We got some amazing photographs, and the sights didn't disappoint! Would love to return and do it again on a smaller boat, but the trip and staff were impeccable.

Excellent way to see the shoreline . History given was very helpful to understand the formations and the types of minerals in the rocks. Take the Spray Falls tour longer and very good. Few of the falls that are usually dried up were working because of the high amount of rain this summer.

We did the spray falls cruise. Lovely scenery. Clean boat, lively and funny tour guide. Enjoyable and probably the only way to really see pictured rocks without lots of walking or kayaking.

We took the Spray falls tour, which was nicely narrated! Beautiful scenery! Definitely something to see! The boat is large and holds quite a few people, and if full, you may not get the best view for pictures. I have seen many pictures of Picture Rocks shoreline on line, which I know now were color enhanced! Colors are not as... More

We're staying in St. Ignace and doing day trips around the upper peninsula. My wife and I had a very good time on the Soo Locks Boat Tour last week. But we had a very negative experience on the Pictured Rocks Boat Tour. So we recommend the Soo Locks Tour but not the Pictured Rocks Tour. We got treated very... More
