Go later in the day if possible - better light on the rock. Comfortable ride - can be breezy - recommend a jacket.

When they say to start lining up early - they mean it. Also - if you have your tickets printed - you do not have to stop inside. This mistake delayed us getting into line. We were still able to get seats on the upper...More

We enjoyed our cruise around the Pictured Rocks. You need to get there at least 45 minutes early to stand in line. They could use a few more benches for older people to sit at while they wait. Staff was friendly and informative. They had...More

We paid extra for the Spray Falls cruise and I truly regret getting the tickets ahead of time. I'm sure the cruise is fabulous in the sunshine but on a cloudy day it was not. The narrator on the boat was excellent and not his...More

Rain will not cause the cruise to cancel, rough water could though. When we were there in September, a few trees were just beginning to change. I’d say your probably going to be near peak. It’s a great cruise. Don’t miss it.

I would take the spray falls cruise. It is a little longer of a cruise but you get to see some beautiful falls. I took the sunset spray falls cruise and everything is even more beautiful at that time of day.
