“Unique experience, worth the money”

Glass Bottom Shipwreck Tours
Ranked #4 of 7 Tours in Munising
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 19, 2013

This was an incredible experience and my whole family enjoyed it. The whole tour took about two hours and that included time out to the various wrecks as well as time spent at the sites. The captain was very informative and told many unique stories about the area in addition to the shipwrecks themselves.

Our boat was about 2/3 full and the crew divided everyone into 2 groups to make sure that everyone got the full experience. While it was the other group's turn, you could go back to your seat or go above deck and see the view from up there. The narrative would begin again so you could hear anything that you might have missed the first time around.

The wrecks themselves were amazing. We could hear everyone actually say 'wow' or gasp when they got their first glimpse of the first wreck. In addition, the crew made sure to point out many little details which might have otherwise been missed.

The tour also passed by a lighthouse as well as some of the Pictured Rocks. The tour then passed by Grand Island, where we were lucky enough to see several wild bald eagles flying to their nest and then eating a fish lunch. The captain slowed the boat down enough so that everyone could enjoy the eagles.

The crew seemed to take great pride in their work and to enjoy their jobs. They were friendly and patient with everyone as they worked to make sure that everyone had a good time.

The gift shop was reasonably priced and we found several cute souvenirs to take home.

The crew was informative and accommodating to everyone. Fantastic view of the ship wrecks and great views of the water and surrounding shores. Would definitely recommend taking the tour.

Visited Munising to take the boat tour to the picture rocks great tour and very interesting tour crew was very nice and informative, I made the mistake and did not ask to see if the tour was along the picture rocks, miners castle and all other points along the rocks, my Family and I were looking for the other tour coming to find out that the picture rocks tour was after we were done with the glass bottom, if you are looking for history this is the right tour, if you are looking for a closer look to the picture rocks miners castle, and other points go for picture rocks tour especially the sun set tour, I hope we have the opportunity and money to visit again next summer.

Great crew. Fortunate to have a small group go out so we had a lot of time over the wrecks. Great information and crew answered a lot of questions.
