Michigan boasts more coastline than any of the lower 48 states and our cruising area offers the best of what this freshwater paradise. We now have three charter bases that offer very different but equally amazing cruising grounds for your next sailing vacation;
Traverse City Base - the majority of our fleet is located here, located at the CenterPointe Marina - with access to Grand Traverse Bay, Little Traverse Bay, the Manitou Islands, Sleeping Bear Dune National Lakeshore, Beaver Island and as far north as Mackinac Island. Sailors can experience towering sand dunes, deserted islands, quaint harbor towns, long stretches of beaches, quiet coves and local festivals.
Cheboygan Base - located at the Duncan Bay Boat Club – with access to Mackinac Island, the 36 islands that make up the Les Chenneaux Archipelago, Drummond Island and the western side of the famed North Channel. Sailors can experience secluded islands and anchorages, quaint towns, rock formations and cliffs and a quick sail to historic Mackinac Island.
Charlevoix info will be posted soon!
