The perfect way to get some time on the lake under sail. Awesome captain and crew! We would definitely like to come back for a longer cruise.

We didn't want to leave the Scout, what a wonderful experience. We stayed overnight on the Scout and loved it. Nothing better than watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee.

I purchased a 2 hour afternoon cruise for my parents & brother & sister. The entire cruise was great! Just wish we had a little more wind to keep us going. Our captain was very knowledgeable & handled the boat with ease.

We went to Traverse City for a girls weekend over Labor Day and took a Sat evening sunset cruise. It was a major highlight! The crew was awesome especially Captain Brett who engaged with all the passengers joking, telling stories and taking their pictures. They obviously have a lot of pride in their tall ship and it shows - I... More

Moomers ice cream was an amazing touch also. Temps were perfect and the night was one of a kind. Great shots of the sunset... More

We had hoped to take a sail on the tall ship, but since we came after Labor Day, that was not a possibility. Instead we booked a private two-hour tour on the Scout for me, my husband, my (adult) daughter, and my sister. The four of us had a wonderful time! Captain Dave was very knowledgable and answered all of... More

My wife, 13 year old son and I took a 2 hour evening sail on the Tall Ship Manitou. It was a beautiful August evening on the bay with a good wind. The staff were friendly and professional, and the experience was the highlight of our one-week vacation. It was thrilling to watch the crew raise the sails and to... More
