Ice Breaker Mackinaw Maritime Reviews & Ratings

  • Great historical side trip if you are ever in Mackinaw City, MI. It's a self tour and they offer military discounts. You follow a series of yellow anchor signs through the bowels of the ship, a few of the stations have staff present to give explanations. Move at your own speed through the ship. Lots of photos on the bulkheads and historical information. Great way to spend the morning or afternoon.

  • Really neat museum to visit. We enjoyed seeing all the different parts of the ship, and the videos that were set up showing the actual ship and crew during its operation. Tour was self guided so you can go through as slow or as quickly as you like. They had a fun area set up for kids to dress in coast guard gear for pics which my kids really enjoyed. Great way to spend an hour.

  • We went with the whole family. 2 adults and all the kids (we had 4) was $38 I believe. It was neat to walk around the ship and take some family photos with the bridge. They also have a photo opp where you can dress in ship gear, helmets, gloves & props (with your own camera). It took us just under an hour. At noon the horn went off.

  • Very interesting tour. Well worth the $12. We spent over 2 hours there. You could speed through it in 45 min but you would miss alot.

  • Very cool ship. Tour allows you to walk around most of ship including engine room, deck, quarters. Very cool and kid friendly
