Michigan's Tall Ship Manitou

E-mail Print PDF


    Ahoy Mate! The Tall Ship Manitou sets sail from Traverse City, Michigan for the remote islands, secluded bays, colorful anchorages, and coastal villages of Lake Michigan. Manitou, a replica of an 1800s cargo schooner offers three daily (2-hr) sails, Bed & Breakfast sails, and 2-3 day sails. At a length of 114 ft, the windjammer has a 62-passenger capacity and 3000 square feet of sail. For overnight stays 12 private cabins offer 2 bunk beds with plenty of room and comfort. Sleeping on the deck under the stars is always a winner—don’t forget your sleeping bag. While underway, you can lend a hand and learn the art of sailing or sit back and enjoy the sea breeze and stunning views. Explore anchorages by sea kayak or rowing dinghy, visit an historical lighthouse and fishing village, and hike and beach comb the Manitou Islands. Enjoy specially prepared meals cooked on a wood burning stove. Special events include live band cruises and an astronomy cruise.
