It's amazing that this is a part of Michigan. The views are beautiful and breathtaking at several locations. Be ready to hike to some of the remote locations and waterfalls. It's worth the effort.

Wow, so much cooler than expected, money well spent. I'm glad we did the bigger faster boat trip to Spray Falls. Amazing views, good informative and fun narration, well worth it. Surprise, $1 beverages available on the boat, nice touch! Nice gift shop too.

Bring a good camera. This shoreline will amaze you. Every color in the rainbow and every type of rock formation. Best seen from a boat but there will be enough scenery even from the shore to occupy you.

Took the longer of the 2 tours tho see the falls. The guide did a good job of narrating. I'm glad I did the tour, but being from the southwestern US, I wouldn't begin to compare the cliffs and colors here to the brilliant ones...More

Just hiked 6/17 around 6 miles of the Lakeshore North Country Trail and in parts (as we approached the Mosquito Falls Loop from the West) the black flies were TERRIBLE!

Hello travelers, I wanted to know if there are hikes that can be done in the day. I am not interested in doing the cruise much as i feel i will be able to see and feel the land more on foot. I am planning to travel by May end. Please share any information. Thanks.
