“I liked it!”

It was Super cool to be on the boat! Everyone was nice and the people there were okay with asking them questions. I would have liked more going on the boat tho.

“Not worth the money”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

This ship is very cool, but way to expensive. They tried to give us information but the dude was boring and seemed very rehearsed. I think they should keep it cleaner also..way to many spider webs.

“An important piece of Michigan History!”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

I had to lie and say I'd been there in April of 2011 in order to review this magnificent boat. In fact I haven't been on board since the 1980s when she was still a working ship and was in Grand Haven.

It was this fine ship that helped keep the Great Lakes open to shipping during the winters after WWII. As such she is a bit of Michigan history that no one with an interest of the state should miss. Afterwards, go over to Mackinac Island and spend at least one night there. You'll remember it always.

“Come aboard the Coast Guard Icecutter "Mackinaw".”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

Authentic attraction on which thousands of Coast Guard members have served in Cheboygan, Michigan, including my Uncle Richard, who met my aunt in Cheboygan. Now the icebreaker is in Mackinaw City right next to the band shell where band concerts are held every Tuesday in July and August, plus other concerts all summer. (A new icebreaker which replaced this one is now docked in Cheboygan right across from the Cheboygan County Marina.)

“Michigan History at its best”
Reviewed October 2, 2011

Have been wanting to visit this historic ship since hearing about the ice breakers on the Great Lakes. Finally got a chance and was extremely impressed with the over-all experience. The video presentations along with the sections of the great ship open to viewing are well thought out, giving the visitor a feel for what it must have been like on board the greatest ice-breaker on the Great Lakes. The staff on hand were very knowledged on all aspects of the ships operating history. The planned park memorial park is fantastic plan and would be a "must see" for anyone interested in the Great Lakes shipping. Thank- you to all the Coast Guard for their service to our country.
