The website said to drop in during business hours so we drove an hour from Ludington only to find that they were closed for maintenance and not running any flights. Very disappointed child and mom !!

I booked this as part of a surprise birthday weekend. Absolutely worth the money, actually it was very reasonable. Our guide/pilot Gale may be one of the nicest people I have ever met. We had a wonderful time!

We grew up in Manistee and we have never taken this tour. It outweighed our expectations! What a deal, only $30 per person. Highly recommend to people who are visiting or if you live here.

Hi Sue! We can take up to 3 additional passengers at a time. We do have other options as far as longer rides, so I would recommend giving us a call at 231-723-8095 to discuss! Thanks! - Gayle
