Mackinaw City Sunset Cruise
USD 24.00
You can really appreciate the size of Lake Michigan when cruising out on the water, and on this one hour cruise from Mackinaw City, you'll not only sail between the strait that separates Michigan's peninsulas, but cruise right under the Mackinaw Bridge while watching the sun go down. The cruise is offered each evening except Tuesdays, and is one of the best places in North America for finishing the day under sail. Listen as the Captain regales you with history of Michigan's most famous island, and relax with a drink as you casually sail along the Mackinaw shore.
What to Expect
Join this cruise to take in the sunset over Lake Michigan onboard Ugly Anne while cruising under the Mackinac Bridge. Listen to music and enjoy an alcoholic beverage and some refreshments (at your own expense). You will be greeted at the dock with a warm welcome and quick introduction of the friendly staff. While on the cruise between Michigan's 2 peninsulas you will see historic lighthouses, a 300+ year old fort and Mackinac Island while having the one of the best seats in North America to watch a beautiful sunset. The sunset cruise is a personalized cruise with local residents that are able to answer questions about the area. The Captain has been a resident of Mackinac Island and Mackinaw Ciy for the past 18 years. Join in for the highlight of your vacation.

Must do!

This is a very must do if your ever in the area. The staff which I believe is a family is very friendly and made it fun with all the information on tour. They take you out under bridge and the photos are priceless.

Our cruise for this night was actually cancelled due to the bad weather. We were really hoping to go this cruise. That's why I said average because we never got to go on it.

There is a parking lot just south of the pier. The lot is gravel so good walking shoes will help. There is street parking on Huron Street too. You will have to walk across the street. You can drop people off in front of... More

I don't know the answer to your question. Perhaps if you call and book ahead there will be room to book for that many at once. It's a beautiful cruise!

This cruise is for all ages but they do serve alcoholic beverages so I believe there would have to be an adult present. It is a beautiful cruise!
