You can really appreciate the size of Lake Michigan when cruising out on the water, and on this one hour cruise from Mackinaw City, you'll not only sail between the strait that separates Michigan's peninsulas, but cruise right under the Mackinaw Bridge while watching the sun go down. The cruise is offered each evening except Tuesdays, and is one of the best places in North America for finishing the day under sail. Listen as the Captain regales you with history of Michigan's most famous island, and relax with a drink as you casually sail along the Mackinaw shore.

Nice tour!

Great little cruise around and under the bridge. Older, small boat, but it has character, and the tour guide was great!

I am pretty sure there was no sunset you could see on September 16th, it was cold, windy and waters were very rough, emailed both companies asking for a refund heard nothing back from either. Would not book anything with either company again!

Hello, I am sorry you were not able to make it out with us on the sunset cruise on September 16. I can assure you there was a beautiful sunset, and the 25 other people that joined us had a lovely trip. To address your concerns: -The temperatures were normal for the time of year. -The winds were approximately 12 MPH at the time of departure, which is well within the range of being safe for our vessel. Also, the weather service had not issued any advisories or warnings for our area. Our boat weighs 20tons, and is 40ft long, so she handled the chop on the water that evening with ease. I am curious why you are saying we did not email you back as I have sent you 4 emails with you responding to all of them. I cannot speak for Viator, but have never heard a complaint about them in the past. If you would like to see pictures of the sunset that evening, feel free to check out our facebook page as we posted a couple there. Unfortunately we do not issue refunds within 24 hours of the cruise or if a person does not show up for the cruise. We hope you enjoyed your time in Mackinaw City

It was great. The only reason for 4 stars is we had no sunset. It was too cloudy, but I know you had no control of that. 5 for you guys though.

Was so much fun! Everyone who worked there were so kind and truly made the experience memorable. The sunset was an excellent bonus! I am recommending the sunset cruise to everyone I know. It was a great ending to our wedding day. Thank you!

Great views and good music. Enjoyed seeing Mackinaw Bridge from all angles. The water, architecture, and sunset was a stunning combination
