Two diesel engines on every boat provide plenty of power and new state-of-the-art stabilizers provide a smooth ride.

All regulations of the U.S. Coast Guard are strictly adhered to, so that your safety and enjoyment are assured. All vessels have enclosed heated cabins, restrooms, stabilizers and cushioned seats for your comfort and safety.

Refund and Exchange Policies

A purchased ticket will be eligible for a refund or an exchange up to 1 hour before the scheduled cruise departure time. If Pictured Rocks Cruises cancels a cruise, you will be provided with a full refund. All exchanges are dependent on availability.

NO REFUNDS or EXCHANGES will be granted after the time of your scheduled cruise. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Cancellation Policy

Pictured Rocks Cruises reserves the right to cancel a scheduled cruise for any reason up until the time of departure. Cancellations are unlikely EXCEPT in the event of inclement weather. Typical weather conditions that warrant cancellations are high winds on Lake Superior causing high waves along the lakeshore, dense fog along the lakeshore, or severe lightning nearby on Lake Superior. Weather conditions on Lake Superior do change quickly and while we are pleased to make as many trips as possible, safety is our greatest concern.

Please be advised of this especially if you are traveling from a long distance or have an extremely inflexible schedule. You may call our ticket office with concerns about a cancellation the day of your cruise.
