Reviewed 16 August 2017

Best swords the premier Coast Guard Cutter and ice breaker in the northern Michigan area. The Mackinac has been flying the Great Lakes since around World War II. It was so good at its job that they could not find a replacement phone for it and the only thing that finally put it out of service as they literally quit making parts for it my uncle and several of my friends have served on this boat and now you get a chance to walk through and see this boat firsthand don't miss this chance to see a great part of Lake michigan-huron and the northern Straits areas history

We loved it. Lots of good information and history, great staff and lots of knowledge. Huge boat, very cool to get hands on with boats you usually see on the news or read about. A must see

We found this tour very interesting and really learned a lot about life on a ship and the function of a ice breaker on the great lakes

This tour was great, but they need to warn people ahead of time that you will need to climb up and down very narrow ladders. It is not for anyone with any knee or back problems
