Today's Cruise Status

October 19, 2023

All cruises for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (10/20 – 10/22) have been cancelled due to extreme wind & wave conditions along the lakeshore. Unfortunately, this ends our 2023 cruising season early. We hope to see you next year starting mid-May.

Tomorrow's Cruising Outlook

2024 Season Bookings

Booking and schedule for the 2024 cruising season will be available in January 2024.

Weekend Weather Warning!

We are expecting some inclement weather over this weekend (Oct. 20 – 22) in the way of high northwest/west winds which could create extreme wave conditions along the lakeshore during this time.

If you are traveling to the area solely for our cruise this weekend please be advised that there is a high possibility of cruise cancellations. It is possible some or all cruises for any day in this period (Oct. 20 – 22) may be cancelled. We will not make cruise cancellations until closer to the time of cruises when we have a better idea of what the wind/wave conditions will actually be.

You can always call our ticket office, 906-387-2379, to inquire about the status of cruises, exchange tickets, or request a refund on tickets. We send text notifications to passengers with tickets booked on any cancelled cruise as soon as a cancellation decision is made (this could be a day-of decision).

Pictured Rocks Cruises, LLC is an authorized concessionaire of the National Park Service Department of the Interior. For over 50 years, our summer cruises have been guiding visitors to the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, a top Michigan vacation spot. Our boat cruises are 2 1/2 to 3 hours and will travel into and alongside the most visually stunning 40 miles of shoreline on the Great Lakes! We offer 3 distinct Michigan cruises:  the Classic Cruise, the Spray Falls Cruise, and the Sunset Cruise. Each cruise departs from the Munising, Michigan City Dock. The crew will assist in ticketing, safety instructions, and other needs. Our day cruises are narrated by the captain, who will inform you of a brief history of the tour boat, local area facts, and Michigan points of interest on this national park tour. If you are looking for unique vacation ideas, choose Pictured Rocks Cruises’ scenic boat tours as your Michigan travel destination.
