Private Boat Charters

Private charter cruises allow for our boats to be rented to specific parties. During a private charter cruise the captain and deckhands will take your party out on Lake Superior for a private tour alongside the beautiful Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. For any private function, be it a rehearsal dinner or celebrating a wedding, Pictured Rocks Cruises offers a day or evening of beauty that will never be forgotten. Private charter cruises may accommodate up to 100 passengers per chartered vessel and are UNAVAILABLE in the months of July and August.

For more information on private charters or to make a reservation, please e-mail us with all inquires at or call us at (906) 387-2379.

*Note: Final decisions on private charter cruises will be made on a case-by-case basis depending on the availability of boats and captains to work the additional daily/group cruises.

Refund and Exchange Policies

A purchased ticket is eligible for a full refund up to 24 hours before the scheduled cruise departure time.

Sometimes, in the event of inclement weather, cruises are forced to end early. The captain of each tour has the sole right and responsibility to decide if a cruise should end early for safety reasons. In such situations, our refund policy is as follows:

1.) If passengers are able to view the East Channel Light House and Miners Castle (the half-way point of the tour), but are forced to cut the tour short due to rough water or inclement weather, then passengers will be given a 50% refund, or the option to reschedule their tour at no additional cost.

2.) If the tour is cut short before it reaches Miner’s Castle, then passengers will be given a full refund, or the option to reschedule their tour at no additional cost.

Of course, if Pictured Rocks Cruises cancels a cruise you will be issued a full refund.

Tickets will be exchangeable up to 24 hours before the scheduled cruise departure time. To exchange your ticket for another time please call us at (906) 387-2379.

Tour Guest Notes

Boats will begin boarding 15 minutesĀ prior to the cruise departure time, at the boarding gate on the Munising City Dock. Those in the front of the boarding line will have first choice seating. During the months of July and August or during holiday weekends, we recommend arriving at least 30 to 45 minutes prior to your scheduled departure time.

No illegal drugs or alcohol are allowed on board our boats under the Zero Tolerance Policy of the United States Coast Guard.
