What You'll Do

Whether you’re looking for a romantic setting or a memorable trip with friends and family, this perfect evening sunset sailing cruise is your answer. Watch the sun go down as we glide through Lake Michigan before or after dinner with your family and friends. You can choose to get involved and help hoist the sail, or simply kick back and relax with a bottle of wine, feel the wind in your hair, and take in the spectacular views.

We’ll explore the coves and waters of Grand Traverse Bay and marvel at the northern Michigan landscapes left behind by ancient glaciers. This is the ultimate Traverse City sunset cruise where you beat the crowds by sailing for 2+ hours north from Traverse City into the blue expanse of the bay.

Add to the magic of the evening and take a dip in the turquoise waters of Lake Michigan (be sure to bring your swimsuit as the water is shallower in West Bay and warms quickly). We’ll get you back to shore in time to enjoy an evening meal in one of the numerous farm-to-plate restaurants in Leelanau County.
