Got a Groupon, but well worth full price. Me, my wife and teen boys (15,13) took the sunset cruise. The crew was friendly, full of Interesting stories about the straits. Amazing views of the bridge. Even the teens liked it.

If you are traveling from Illinois, take interstate 75 north to Mackinaw City. Located at 229 S Huron Ave. Look for the parasailing sign and its right next to it. Enjoy
