This cruise was better than anticipated. The cruise stops at landmark attractions. Captain is constantly giving info on history of the area and waterfalls. Definitely order your tickets in advance online or phone. They sell out quickly. Well worth the price! Amazing gift shop, something for everyone.

Excellent way see pictured rocks, Cruise takes about 2 hrs., goes up and returned same way so doesn't matter which side you sit on, ship is pretty big, three levels, top is open, has bathroom, captain narrates along the way.

This was a great way to experience Pictured Rocks with so much to see! The crew was great with captain, Zach, giving us great information and lousy jokes (as one expects from this type of cruise!). Accommodations for safety were made and helped us to feel more comfortable.

Pictured Rocks is absolutely beautiful. The best time is during sunset. It is best to experience by boat. However, Chapel Loop hike is also well worth it. My only complaint is people have been leaving liter, which if the problems keep happening, I wouldn’t be surprised if we start losing the privilege to explore. Paradise Point has already been banned to the public for this very reason. Bring out what you take in.
