    This fort has several buildings to visit as well as some demonstrations, and a nice gift shop. We spent a couple of hours going from building to building. There is a lot of information to see and read. A nice place for adults and children.

    We took the sunset SUP tour in early September and had a great experience! The weather was perfect; low 70s and I didn't get overheated while paddling or cold even with the cool lake water.

    We'd kayaked before, but never done SUP. The other guide that had just come back in gave us a lesson while our guide, Sydney, prepped the kayakers, and was really helpful.

    Once we got out on the water, Sydney was a great guide, telling stories about places on the island and being helpful if we had questions or issues. She even took photos of everyone while we were waiting for sunset and sent them to us afterward, which was really nice.

    I will say that I wish the tour route itself was more interesting; for most of it, we were hugging the docks and breakwater, then doubled back and went further west to wait for sunset. That may have been the only real option for a short 2-hour tour (while keeping out of the way of the ferries and boats). If we end up back on Mackinac, we might take another one of the tours in order to see more of the island

    Tyler was so fun to ride with and knowledgeable about his island. We chose to do the Private Carriage ride at the end of our 2 day stay. We had many questions about the island, it's history and residents. Tyler answered with great responses, his wit is quick and relaxing. We are so thankful someone recommended this tour.

    This was a must-do for us. You board right where you purchase tickets and they drive you to the butterfly house. Then you board a different trolley to drive through the state park to Arch Rock. The drivers tell silly stories and make the journey fun. It was kind of cold and they supplied nice wool blankets.

    Rented a bike and scooter to complete the 8.2 miles around the island. They were really great when I asked the night before if I could rent a scooter for the tour around the island. Told me sure. Made my day because I could not ride a bicycle and got to share experience with my daughter. Told me if had any problems just give them a call. I know they tell everyone that but it was still nice.

    Awesome place to visit. Was the Lilac festival and you could smell them everywhere. Lots of walking, up and down hill. Great tour in horse and buggy. Lots of families and family thing to do.

    My daughter really wanted to do a carriage ride, but I didn’t want to be around a lot of people. We opted for the drive yourself option. I was worried, but the horse knew what he was doing ;). I do have past experience with horses, but it is limited and has been many years.

    The ride was pleasant and took us through areas we had not visited previously. I would highly recommend.

    We did not realize you could get on board before cruising time. So all the cabin tables were taken. But that turned out to be a blessing. Our family occupied the aft section. There wasn't any wind and the view of the sunset was spectacular! The staff was courteous and prompt. You can run a tabl during the cruise.

    My friend and I enjoyed this tour during our trip to the island! It was a nice introduction to the island, as we learned about different tourist spots on the island, island history, and some spooky ghost stories! Our guide was very knowledgeable and had plenty of stories to share - including her own spooky experiences. The stories were appropriate for all ages. Would definitely recommend this tour! You will need to stay the night on the island though, as the tour starts after the last ferry leaves.

    Side note: this tour is also very reasonably priced.

    Jim, Jimmy, and Chris were unbelievable on 7/14/21 for parasailing! They made my 78 year old handicapped friend feel safe parasailing. From helping her down to the boat, on the boat as well as explaining the harness and what to do. We stuck our landing! What a great experience. Thank you Jim, Jimmy, and Chris.

    You will NOT find a better experience on Mackinac Island. Dr. Mary not only makes her tours informative and interesting, but she is so friendly and flexible. I traveled to Mackinac Island with several other people and contacted Dr. Mary a few weeks beforehand. She communicated consistently with me, and was flexible enough to conduct her tour when our schedule allowed. This was my 4th trip to Mackinac Island, and Dr. Mary showed me things i had never seen before. After taking her tour (which is limited to only 10 people), I knew so much more about the history and current culture of the island. There is quite a bit of walking, so make sure you have comfortable walking shoes).
