It got cancelled due to the wind, but it wasn’t very windy at all! Very disappointed. We had this planned since June.

Richard_B

The weather was great and the historical facts were cool, not only for the bridge, but for the Coast Guard Ice Cutter and the ferries and the Mackinac Island hotel.

Wonderful boat ride under mackinaw bridge and back. Enjoyed a cold beverage while cruising. Was a little disappointed we didn’t get to see Fort Michilmilimac from the water. But otherwise tour was as stated.

We had to cancel this excursion due to an unexpected illness with one of my children. The Bridge Cruise was willing to cancel our reservation and give us a refund, but because we had booked through Tripadvisor, the reservation was nonrefundable. Life happens. Too bad Tripadvisor doesn't recognize that.

The captain and crew were so kind and informative. So glad we went-my teen granddaughter also loved it!

This was a fun and informative cruise to learn about the history of the mackinaw bridge. Captain and first mate were very pleasant and gave us a lot of information.

We sat in the back of the boat to see well and get good pictures. However, the motor was loud , too few of speakers, and too soft of voice, so we missed most of the history. We enjoyed the boat ride and beverages. we just wished we could have heard the info.

This was a good family friendly experience. We've learned some interesting facts about the area & my son was excited to demonstrate his newly gained knowledge the next day during the island tour. We all enjoyed the cruise.
