Explore Lake Michigan or Manistee River and Manistee Lake!
Cruise Lake Michigan from the Manistee City Marina on the Scenic River Boardwalk in downtown Manistee. The excursion will depend on the wind, wave, and comfort level cruising on Lake Michigan. It will start with a boat ride to Lake Michigan to check out the sea conditions.
We will then cruise either north or south depending on the waves. Our first priority is your safety and comfort. A cruise to the south will be a 1 1/2 hour excursion toward Big Point Sable. The cruise to the north will be a 1 1/2 hour excursion to the harbor of Onekema and entrance to Portage Lake.
If we can’t cruise in a calm sea, we will take an excursion up the Manistee River and go under two drawbridges on into Manistee Lake. There we will view the City of Milwaukee moored as a tourist attraction along with a large USCG rescue vessel as well as other sites.
*This boat trip can be guaranteed as a preferred destination if a minimum of 10 adults request it. It is also the destination if Lake Michigan is not comfortable to cruise.
