We had a great time going to 3 harbors. The view was incredible! We loved the water and the beautiful sunset. The captain and first mate were fun, personable, and even let my daughter help steer the ferry! Thanks for a great experience!

Perfect way to spend a day from Petoskey to Harbor Springs to Bay Harbor. Love their mission of getting more people out on the bay by making it as accessible as can be! Excellent professional and personal captains!

Delightful way to experience Little Traverse Bay. Strongly recommend this as a means of seeing the area from the water at a leisurely pace. Take time at the various ports to experience what each one has to offer. Captain John was very professional, courteous, and entertaining.

The ride from Harbor Springs to Bay Harbor was great. However, we were left in Bay Harbor with no way to return and no reason why. We received a phone call with a message to inform us of the boat cancellation and a refund for the return trip. We had to call a cab to get back to Harbor Springs. We understand that problems arise, but an explanation would have been nice.
