We took the sunset cruise and were blessed with good weather. The sunset could have been better but it peeked out from the clouds long enough to get some great pictures. I recommend it!

There is no real way to appreciate this place from the land side. Either rent one or ride on one. Sunset is the best time to both appreciate or get good photo images. Bring layers....it can get cold and windy.

We were not disappointed at all. The colors were great and the time we went it was not busy at all. We were able to drive at our own pace! No bears or moose sightings (bummer)

Hi. We just took the boat tour but if you have the chance to kayak I think it would be fantastic. I saw that they hauled the kayaks out to the prettiest part and then just unloaded them off the boat for the guests. So my... More

You need to spend one day on Mackinac Island. If you are already doing that and have two extra days, then yes I recommend the upper peninsula. It is an easy drive up I75 to Sault Ste. Marie to do the Soo Locks cruise which... More
