Pictured Rocks Cruises offers three distinct tours for the enjoyment of our guests. We are open daily, from 8 am (EST) until the last boat returns to our dock, from mid May through mid October.
The lasts approximately two hours and forty minutes and has departure times from mid-morning throughout the afternoon. This tour offers views of the East Channel Lighthouse, Miners Castle, the Painted Coves, several other caves of all colors, Lovers Leap, Rainbow Cave, Indian Head, the Gull Rookery, Grand Portal, Battleship Rock, Flower Vase, Indian Drum, Chapel Cove and Chapel Rock.
The tour extends beyond the Regular Cruise and includes the majestic Spray Falls. This cruise lasts roughly two hours and fifty-five minutes and takes place in the late afternoon.
The is the last tour of every day. It follows the same route as the Regular Cruise, but leaves port at a time which allows guests to view Pictured Rocks as the sun sets over Lake Superior. The Sunset Cruise is our most popular tour because of the scenery created as the sun sets and reflects off of the rock formations.
