We took a trip to Mackinaw City for part of our anniversary trip & booked the Ugly Anne Boat Sunset cruise. The boat ride was smooth & the sunset was outstanding. We had a great time, I would highly recommend!

We were very pleased with the short boat ride experience. The crew made great efforts to make sure that all angles of the boat had great views of the bridge at sunset. That being said, however, we we were disappointed that the benches were uncomfortable and that it seems no efforts were made to limit numbers for covid safety.

Normally they offer sunset cruises and history cruises. When we inquired, in October, they said they combined into one since sunset was so close to cruise time, but there wasn’t much history, which was our reason for going. That was a little disappointing. The boat ride under the bridge was neat and the sunset was beautiful but the history tour was what we really wanted.

Well— it was too windy and we couldn’t go, good thing because neither of us would have felt safe after viewing the boat. The lady that was in the office was AWESOME and even though it said no returns she did give us a full refund because of the weather. Professional and kind!!

We really liked being on a small ship and getting to sit right on the railing with nothing blocking our view. The sunset was hazy because of fires in Canada, but we still got a great look at the bridge from all sides and also got to see the Icebreaker ship on our way back in. Drinks are available for sale during the trip. It got cold out on the water, so be sure to dress for that!

This was hands down the BEST part of our entire trip to MI! The cruise was perfect. We lucked out and had a great sunset to watch because the weather cooperated, but even if that wasn't the case, it was still well worth the money paid. Crew and employees are incredibly kind and outgoing. They give you information on the cruise but not so much that you feel numb from the history lesson. Safety is their priority and even in this time of COVID we felt safe and had the best time!

The Ugly Anne is a retired Maine lobster boat, built in 1976. So while not shiny and new, she has a lot of heart. Captain Chris is a quite personable fellow with an excellent crew. We had a lovely sunset with excellent views of the bridge. The only detractor was the little flying bugs that were everywhere, especially when moving slowly. Fortunately, they don't bite or sting, so just a mild nuisance. The boat is outfitted with benches for seating and beverages were available for purchase. We enjoyed chatting with a few of the other passengers. Great view of the bridge from all angles!

I booked this cruise for my boyfriends birthday. He loves boats and being on the water! Ordering tickets was so easy. When we arrived the lady helping us was fantastic. She made sure everyone was set and even asked when we got back if we enjoyed the trip.

The captain and crew were amazing. I even watched the captain let kids "drive the boat" which was so nice.

The sky was so cloudy we didn't see a cool sunset, but the ride itself was fun with music and a cash bar.

If you're debating on this activity, don't hesitate! Just do it, you won't regret it.

We had a wonderful time. The family that owns and runs the cruise we’re friendly and fun. The boat was safe and there are no bad seats. The crew shared facts and history in a fun way and it was not boring at all. They made sure everyone got to see the bridge and sunset. This was a once in a lifetime for us. We will definitely do the cruise again and the history cruise too. Highly recommend.

Historical commentary was very good. Enjoyed the stop under the bridge to see cars going over. Great photo op. Friendly crew and passengers. A few too many people on the boat is the only reason I am taking off a star. Beautiful even though too cloudy too see sunset.
