The sunset cruise was a great way to end the day. Our group had to reschedule and Sue was very accommodating and personal. She was a delight to work with! The tour itself was very fun! We learned a lot about the history of the bridge. My favorite part was looking at the bridge and seeing the cars pass through. Highly recommend this tour if you’re in town!

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!

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 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!

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.
