We were but just a few feet above the shipwrecks. It was amazing. Lighting was very good so one could see the details. We wish, however, that we could have seen more than just two wrecks.More

It's true that there many other shipwrecks in the area with 73 in the Alger Underwater Preserve. We have only a limited amount of time and we've chosen to show the two most interesting ones in the area with the most artifacts on them. Getting...More

The ride was more than just shipwrecks, we also learned a lot about the area on the way to the wreck sites. The views of the shipwrecks were clear and the guide was very informative. Due to some storms the water was a bit rough...More

Good way to learn about some of the Muinising area history! The two shipwrecks you see are very detailed and up close. The boat ride was nice and refreshing. I did, however think we would be seeing more of the Pictured Rocks than we did,...More

It was a great experience - we went on a long weekend, so the boat was packed. The crew made sure everyone on board got the chance to see the wrecks. We in fact had a very active and restless toddler with us, but still...More

We decided on a whim to go on this tour because we wanted to see Pictured Rocks during our trip to the UP but we wanted an informational tour. We learned a lot about what life used to be like on Lake Superior and about...More

Thank you for the great review. I think it is great how you noticed the narrators give out different facts during each group. They do that to keep it fun and exciting.

We saw two shipwrecks on our tour. There was a turn-taking system for see the wrecks so we were in the second group that first heard it all but couldn't see and then had our chance to look in the glass bottomed viewing areas. I'm...More

So glad you enjoyed our tour. I always tell people if they have a chance to visit the shipwreck museum too they should. Our tour and their museum compliment each other.

Ours was the first of the day and there was a lot of fog on the way out. It had cleared by the time were started to come back in though. Views were spectacular. Fog did not effect views of the wrecks.

We take a detailed look at two of the areas shipwrecks. One looks just like a pirate ship. Kids LOVE this tour. We also see an old lighthouse and get very close with the cliffs and caves on Grand Island.
