Sleeping Bear Dunes Cruise imageSummer season begins June 1st for Frankfort boat cruise company

For those of you who’ve been waiting since last fall for a trip along the Lake Michigan shore, the wait is over. Sleeping Bear Dunes Boat Cruises is open for the season. Daily tours along the shoreline from Frankfort to the National Lakeshore in Empire began today for the cruise company in it’s second season.


Over the winter a new boat, “Lady Michigan,” has been under construction in Alabama. With a delay in the arrival of the new boat, the Upper Peninsula company sent another beautiful ship, “Pictured Rocks” to start off the season.


For the early part of June the daily schedule includes one trip at 11am. The beautiful sunset cruises will be added to the schedule on June 18th.


If you’re looking for a new way to enjoy the Dunes this year I hope you’ll check out Sleeping Bear Dunes Boat Cruise.
