Sailing out of Traverse City, the tall ship Manitou offers a morning Bloody Mary Cruise (10:00 AM - 12:00 PM), two Moomers Ice Cream Sails (1:00 PM - 3:00 PM, 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM), and our popular Evening Sail (6:30 PM - 8:30 PM). Add on our Dinner & Sail Package to complete your evening adventure. Dine in with our friends at Harrinton's By the Bay either before or after your Evening Sail. This is a terrific value! Each adventure is two hours in length. Manitou also offers multi-day Windjammer cruises in September. With over 3,000 square feet of sail, this stately vessel has plied the waters of West Grand Traverse Bay since 1991 and continues to be the most unique attraction in the entire area.
For those looking for a private, more intimate experience, we also operate the classic sailing yacht Scout, which will whisk you away on a luxurious private charter cruise for up to six guests. Sail the spectacular waters of Grand Traverse Bay for a couple of hours or take the whole day and head over the horizon. Perhaps you’d like to drop anchor and explore Power Island. Scout is yours while you’re aboard. We cater this adventure to your wishes. Make the most of it!
