While on a short trip North Bay to gather with friends we decided to take the 1.5 hour cruise on the boat on a balmy Tuesday afternoon. It was the only option available to us and that was just fine. Booking tickets online was quick and easy as was the boarding pass exchange. On board the announcements from the bridge were audible and clear. We enjoyed the narrative during the cruise - not too long - with the right amount of information and story telling telling as we made our way to the Manitou Islands. I could have lived without the tinny music from the radio which did not add anything to the experience. But it wasn’t annoying. We stayed up on the observation deck and didn’t sample the available food or drink - though people did. It was delivered up to the deck from the second level snack-bar. People seemed to be enjoying their munchies and beverages. I would love to take the sunset cruise and might manage my next trip to ensure it is on a day when that cruise is running. There is a dinner cruise option that also looks pretty good. Go ahead - get on board for a nice cruise along the lake. It’s worth it, and very enjoyable.

After a 53 year wait I rode this Chief Commander again. The childhood memories came right back to reality. Organized ticket ordering and embarkation. We chose the lunch 1 1/2 hr cruise since that was only available. The all day cruise is not running to August. That is what I remember as a child 50 plus yrs. ago. Food was simple but good. Took awhile to receive after ordering. Nice time gorgeous sunny cool ride.

Spent a great day on the Chief, also our anniversary so a double bonus.French River cruise was really enjoyable as the scenery was simply breathtaking. The staff from the Captain on down were very courteous and professional at the same time. The only thing I can recommend would be perhaps an overhead awning of some sort, not sure if it is even possible to install, on the upper observation deck to mitigate a blazing sun on really hot summer days. I would heartily recommend a cruise on the Chief to anyone who visits the North Bay area, had a great day overall.
