We've taken the tour twice now, and it was just a good the second time. The hosts are great, very friendly and knowledgeable. The scenery is great too. It's very interesting to hear about the history of Shipwreck Alley

This was our second tour and we loved it just as much the second time. The crew is knowledgeable and pleasant. We were able to have great viewing of three ship wrecks during our 2 hour tour.

We have been coming to Alpena for years and finally decided to take the Shipwreck Tour. What had stopped us before was the cost. But it was well worth it. The docent on the boat was very knowledgeable about the history of the shipwrecks we...More
