My wife and I went on the wine and chocolate boat tour. The captain was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The wines choices on the boat are a little limited, but they offer you two additional samples when you hey back from the tasting room.

We looked at the wine and chocolates available and decided to purchase several chocolates for special treats. They also offer wine and chocolates tastings and a riverboat cruise.

I did the one hour Wine and Chocolate Boat Tour. You were able to taste five pre-selected wines, 2 wines of your choosing after the tour and 1 full glass of wine of your choice towards the end of the tour. Each of the wines on the boat were paired with a very delicious chocolate. I highly recommend the Peach... More

We did the wine and chocolate pairing cruise. Nice little tour of the river; enjoyed trying the wine and chocolate pairings. Wines were okay; chocolates were excellent. Reasonable price considering the quantity of wine they provide. Also very nice to have a small boat with a limited number of passengers. Would definitely recommend (as long as you're not a wine...

The boat captain (Cody) and Wine Server (Eilzabeth) were very nice and knowledgeable about the area and the wines. I hadn't done a wine w/chocolate tasting before and enjoyed the aspect of tasting the difference in the... More

We took the FunShip boat tour just for something to do as we had walked so much around Frankenmuth. The store itself is nice but nothing to write home about but the outside area behind the building is really nice. As you walked down the stairs to the boat dock (yes, there are a lot of steps), there is a... More

I really enjoyed Funships "Wine and Chocolate Tasting Tour", even though the wine was not fantastic. My girlfriends and I lucked out weather-wise on the August ride on the Cass River, not too hot and low humidity. I liked that there were only 11 passengers and again we were lucky that we had such a fun group. Our Captain, Mike,... More
