We took the 5:00 cruise and tour. Staff was friendly and very knowledgeable a must for seeing the bridge. We even had a cold beer. It was a family friendly trip too. Bugs were bad but that was just bad timing on our part.

We decided to try out the Ugly Anne, taking the sunset cruise. So glad we did. The boat ride was fun, staff was super nice and the views were fantastic. We went in late May before the busy season so there were only three other couples on board. While cruising they give information about the area. They offer beer, wine, soda and water while on the cruise. The best part is the views followed closely by the owners/staff. It is family run and they are all super nice and knowledgeable. If you are ever in Mackinaw be sure to check them out, we will definitely be coming back!

Amazing experience. Seemed to be family owned, the lady who sold the tickets was a sweetheart, the captain, and gentleman giving information aboard the trip were very knowledgeable and likable. Amazing view of the sunset and bridge in a way that you have to see. They could have charged $50 a ticket and it would have been completely worth it. Great experience and trip. I highly recommend it to anyone going to mackinaw. A must see

Chris and his family continue to impress with the Ugly Anne. Kari and I love the boat, the family, and we always learn new things when talking to Tom, the "deck hand". The highlight to every cruise is passing under the Mackinaw Bridge, and if you have someone to kiss, it's even better. We ordered tickets in December, and I mentioned on Facebook the weekend we'd be in town. Pat called us to confirm reservations, and we were delighted with a glass of wine to toast our wedding.
