Fun adventure in TC!

Overview Of The Tour
This destination is only accessible by boat and coveted as a summer escape from the hustle and bustle of life. Let us shuttle you by sail to the island. We will throw the “hook” (anchor) and bask in the sun, swim in shallow, crystal fresh waters and dig our toes into the sand. Our 30′ O’day sailboat “Allegro” has a generous swim platform and ladder for easy access if you dare to leap from the cabin top into the water. If you wish to explore the many trails on land, our 14′ dinghy can easily taxi a full party of 6 to the island. The island offers hiking trails, sandy beaches and picnic spaces for your enjoyment. Simply experience the Fresh Coast Lyfstyle with us! Picnic, sip on a local wine and enjoy a perfect day. At the end of the day, we will set sail for Traverse City regaling the day and lifetime memories.

Fun adventure in TC!
Great and smooth sailing around West Bay!
Had a great time sailing down and around West Bay. Smooth times and great calm water as we sailed the coast of Leelanau County. West bay is one of the best places to adventure in Michigan when you want to explore but not to get too far away from the convenances or restaurants of Traverse City.
We chose the ebike-sunset sail and to say we had a blast is an understatement! Eric is a fantastic host! We highly recommend booking – you won’t regret it!
Unlike any other!
Just returned from a trip to South Manitou Island with Eric from Lyfmotiv. The journey was great…but when combined with Eric’s expert knowledge, deep experience, and gentle personality it was unforgettably amazing! Go with him. You will not regret it. He makes a great trip even better.
We had the best time!
It was nice to enjoy the area at a slower pace, taking in all the details as we travelled. The E-bikes were comfortable to ride and the paved trail had some lovely views. Lake Michigan is even more beautiful when you are on the bay. In a sailboat. Our guide was very knowledgeable as well as interesting and we learned a lot. Looking forward to the next adventure already!
Can’t wait to go again!
This was the best way to experience Northern Michigan I have ever had. What an amazing adventure….water, wind, sand, biking through some of the most beautiful trails in the US! The captain, Eric is amazing. He has a wealth of knowledge and we certainly felt the experience was once in a lifetime.
Just book the trip. You don’t need to read this review.
The five-star rating says it all. It was a great trip! Lyfmotiv did an excellent job of communicating with us leading up to our day on the trail and water. Don’t pass this one up, folks! I’ll be telling people about this mini-adventure for a long time.
