This was a really great experience! The staff share lots of interesting facts about the bridge and surrounding waters. It was easy to hear, and the views were spectacular.

Very happy to hear you enjoyed the cruise. Also glad to hear that you were able to hear the audio portion of the tour. We had a few problems with it earlier in the season but did some upgrades to improve the quality.

We thoroughly enjoyed our sunset cruise last evening. If you're one of the first in line, head for the bench in the back- best for photos. But if not, it works out.

If you are traveling from Illinois, take interstate 75 north to Mackinaw City. Located at 229 S Huron Ave. Look for the parasailing sign and its right next to it. Enjoy
