I would definitely recommend doing this. My family enjoyed it. I would recommend wearing or bringing a jacket or sweatshirt because it does get cold on the lake. They do a great job talking about the lake and the formations. A highlight of our trip....More

We took the Spray cruise and enjoyed it very much. While the narration can be a little hokey - the jokes are reminiscent of Disney's "Jungle Cruise," - the narrator provides some very interesting information about the lake and its rock formations. The ship takes...More

I can't say enough about the boat cruise. It was a very informative experience and the narrator was full of info not only about the pictured rocks but about the area and Lake Superior. You can't skip this. It's well worth the money

Well I almost always avoid large crowded group tours, this was a must do. Our captain was not only funny entertaining but extremely knowledgeable. He was able to point out perspectives, history and folklore about the rocks that I frankly never would’ve noticed or known....More

Spectacular scenery, azure blue water, waterfalls, and stories about the area all made a great time. We were very fortunate to tour on a sunny day, it made the trip. We viewed some of the sights the day after, when the skies were overcast, and...More

Very nice trip, narrated well by the captain. Thought it was pretty expensive though, $90 for 2 adults for a 2 hour boat trip. Didn't like that they asked for tips for the crew, they didn't do anything, they just sat there talking to each...More

When you are seated on our boats you will be facing the front of the boat, so yes it would be your right while facing the front. Hope this helps! Captain Jaden

Be prepared with jacket etc, depending on the time of year you cruise and whether you want to sit in the open air (top deck) or enclosed lower deck.
