Ride With a Ranger Tour

5/5
We went on the Emita II in Michigan City and it was great! I have a preschooler and we did the Saturday morning ride with a Ranger. It was extremely family friendly, and my daughter loved it. Ranger Anna, Captain Bill and the rest of the staff were so kind. It was a fun, educational and relaxing adventure. We are definitely planning on coming back!
