Yacht Charters in The Great Lakes
Traverse City to Pellston, Great Lakes: 7 Days
Day 1: Traverse City, Michigan
Your Captain will meet you at the airport and escort you through the city to the marina where you will board and settle in for the week. After a delicious lunch, cruise to the quaint antique fishing village of Northport on the western arm of the Leelanau Peninsula.
Day 2: Charlevoix, Michigan
Charleviox offers great shops, art galleries and restaurants to enjoy. Afterwards, take a leisurely ride down Lake Charlevoix to Boyne City, do some water skiing or tubing along the way. The golfers will have an opportunity to hit the links at Boyne Highlands or any of the other nearby golf courses.
Day 3: Bay Harbor
Leave Charlevoix for a short cruise to Bay Harbor, a quaint man-made community (similar to Vail, CO), known for its upscale lifestyle. Horseback riding, 27-hole championship golf course, fine dining and exclusive shops are just a few examples.
Day 4: Harbor Springs
Cruise to the historic resort town of Harbor Springs (somewhat comparable to Nantucket), long time summer home to some of Michigan's wealthiest families.
Day 5 & 6: St. James Harbor & Mackinac Island
From Harbor Springs we proceed north and either head over to St. James Harbor on Beaver Island and spend some time there, or continue under the Mackinac Straits Bridge to historic Mackinac Island. There are no cars on the island; transportation is provided only by bicycle, horseback or horse-drawn carriage. Take a bicycle trip around the island (8 miles), enjoy touring the historic two forts, or visit the town's many artisan shops. A visit to the Grand Hotel, boasting the longest outdoor open air porch in the world, is always a delight.
Day 7: Les Cheneaux Islands & Pellston
Take a picturesque excursion through Les Cheneaux Islands. Spend the night at a remote island anchorage and return to Mackinaw City for your departure from Pellston, a short ride from the Mackinaw City Marina.
