Straits of Mackinac: Where do you want to go?
Private charters are an excellent option for a larger group or family that would like to have the boat to themselves. The most popular charter is to go under the Mackinac Bridge, then cruise the Straits of Mackinac, but we are happy to customize a cruise to whatever experience our guests are looking for. Our main port of departure is from Mackinaw City, but we can pick up from Mackinac Island and another location depending on if we can secure dockage. Charters can have up to 30 people, and we do have a cash bar with beer, wine, pop, and water. Feel free to give us a call or email, and we would be happy to discuss how we can customize a trip for you.
Cash bar available on all cruises and charters.
