Pictured Rock Cruises - Which Cruise to Take?

Hello! On August 2nd or 3rd I'll be in Munising and would love to take a ride on Pictured Rocks Cruises. I see that they have 3 different cruises and was just curious if anyone has any advice regarding picking one--since they're all the same price.

Here are the descriptions from their site:

Pictured Rocks Regular Cruise

Bring your camera and join us on a breathtaking 2 1/2 to 3 hour cruise along Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The ancient sandstone walls and crystal clear blue-green waters of Lake Superior have created masterpieces of colors and rock formations found nowhere else in the world. The 37 mile adventure passes points such as Lovers Leap, Grand Portal, Miners Castle, and Indian Head. Enjoying Pictured Rocks from the water is the premier way to experience the scope and beauty of this national lakeshore!

Pictured Rocks Cruise Including Spray Falls

Join us on a breathtaking 3 hour cruise along Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore that ends at the spectacular Spray Falls, the grand finale on the popular Spray Fall cruise that is offered in late afternoons. It is a remote waterfall that is best viewed from the water because Spray Creek shoots water roughly 70 feet over the Pictured Rocks cliffs directly into Lake Superior. Most consider this location the highlight of all the many waterfalls that are found amongst Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.

Pictures Rocks Sunset Cruise

During a breathtaking sunset on Lake Superior and Munising Bay, the Sunset Cruise gives guests a special view of the rock formations with the glow from the sun making a picturesque and romantic scene. The 37 mile, 2 1/2 hour adventure passes points such as Lovers Leap, Grand Portal, Miners Castle and Indian Head, which are described with legend and lore by your captain. Enjoying Pictured Rocks from the water is the premier way experience the scope and beauty of this national lakeshore!

they're all pretty much the same. take the sunset if that atmosphere appeals or changing light is important to your photography needs. the other 2 are the same, except the spray falls one goes a little further to spray falls. if either works for your schedule, no reason not to see spray falls. we didn't just because we needed to take the morning cruise and that wasn't the spray falls trip.
