I lived much of my young adult life in the UP. The Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is one of the many ‘must see’ attractions north of the Mackinaw Bridge. The best way for us aging seniors to appreciate the splendor of Lake Superior is to...More

We went on a boat cruise that took you right up to the rocks. It was an overcast day but the rocks were still beautiful.

Headed to the Upper Peninsula from Charlevoix with Pictured Rocks as our destination. And we were not disappointed. It is absolutely unbelievable what an effect wind & waves from Lake Superior have had on this area. The caves, the rock shapes are best seen from...More

We caught a great sunny day in October for our boat tour of Pictured Rocks! We sat up top and got the front row which gave us some shelter from the cool wind. The guides were a team that had obviously worked together for some...More

Well unfortunately for us, our sunset cruise was rainy. But the scenery was still beautiful and the crew was informative about the rocks and they engaged with the passengers. The cruise is about 2 hours long. I would love to do this again with pretty...More

Rain will not cause the cruise to cancel, rough water could though. When we were there in September, a few trees were just beginning to change. I’d say your probably going to be near peak. It’s a great cruise. Don’t miss it.

I would take the spray falls cruise. It is a little longer of a cruise but you get to see some beautiful falls. I took the sunset spray falls cruise and everything is even more beautiful at that time of day.
