Was great to view Traverse City via the Discovery boat. Ride was smooth and Harley(?) did a good job telling us about the city. Glad the tour was available but was hoping for the happy hour tour!

Delightful experience to cruise Grand Traverse Bay and learn some interesting history from the very friendly crew! The ship was clean and offered snacks, drinks, and varied seating options! Don't miss this gem of an experience!

The Discovery was very clean and had some snacks to purchase. The narrative about Traverse City history along with information about the two peninsulas that enclose West Bay was fascinating! The two hours slipped by quickly and left us wanting more antidotes. I would highly recommend this cruise!

The whole trip was great! After 13 years of visiting TC I never knew there were 2 sides of the bay. The captain did a great job pulling back into the dock. The tour guide was informative. The food vendor was great also. All staff had awesome attitudes. I would go back again.

my wife and i took this tour of traverse bay with Discovery curises, last week. It was absolutely fabulous. Its a huge double decker boat. The crew on the boat is absolutely fantastic. Harley who was the captain and who was doing the narration, giving us fantastic info and history about the entire area was fantastic. Jack, Marc and Chritina were simply outstanding. This cruise is an absolute must do in the TC area. It is an absolutely gorgous ride, with views which are uncomparable to anything else. The boat has a fully stocked bar and snacks, including fantastic hot dogs. It is very clear to see that everyone working at this company takes this not only as a job, but as a passion. great job guys
