Overview Of The Tour

There is no better way to experience Grand Traverse than to spend the day sailing on West Grand Traverse Bay. Join us as we hoist the sails for a cruise wherever the winds may guide us. Bring your swimsuits and a refreshing beverage. If you wish, your captain can lower the anchor on one of our many beautiful sandy swimming locations. Go for a splash and we will uncork your wine or have your snacks ready when you come out of the water. Charter this cruise with us and you will be creating happy memories for a lifetime!
