“Great time”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

We took the sunset cruise. Unfortunately it was cloudy that night but we still had a great time. Sights were awesome. Would do it again.

“Best Evah!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

It's a hike to Munising from our starting location but was well worth the trip! We took the 1000A cruise and had a great seat inside the boat. Dave S was our captian and did a great job narrating the tour (2.5 hours) as well as making himself accessible to the patrons during outgoing and return trip to port. He was very knowledgeable and friendly! A Family-friendly tour up to selling AA batteries in case one forgot to load the camera. Beautiful scenery and once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Don't forget to spend time inside the store!

“Excellent tour all around”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

The crew was well versed in their subject, very personable, and quite witty -- especially Leo. I and my husband, who has been in tourism at the national level for years, had an excellent time! We went on the sunset tour, and it was well worth the money. Yes, the crew is much quieter on the way back, after it begins to be truly dark; but frankly, by that point, it's much appreciated. The line between enough and too much information/talking is a fine one, and we felt that the crew found the right balance. Bravo!

Staff on the boat was excellent. Ryan was very helpful with extras along the way. Highly recommend. Very delightful way to enjoy Lake Superior and the shoreline. If in Munising don't miss this opportunity

“Beautiful views of the Pictured Rocks”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

We took the sunset cruise at 7:15 pm. The first half of the cruise was beautiful in the setting sun and was narrated by staff. On they way back it was getting too dark for good views or pictures, and there was no interaction with the cruise staff - would have been nice of them to point out the sites again since people who were on the left side of boat didn't get to see as well on the way out. If you go, choose a cruise time that will start and end in daylight for best views, and dress in layers as it gets very chilly on the lake (even in August when th day time temp is neat 80). The views are amazing and make for beautiful photos. Price is a bit steep at $36 per person.
