Great Turtle Kayak Tours delivers personalized kayak & SUP tours from Mackinac Island and Mackinaw City to individuals, couples, families, and large groups.

Above all, these are custom tours: we can do everything from an info-packed curriculum to a great cardio workout, or from a relaxing sunrise paddle to everything in between.

  • Absolutely the best experience I’ve had yet at Mackinac!! My partner and I booked a private kayaking tour a few days ago and there was wonderful communication about our times and prices! Our tour guide, Megan, was ABSOLUTELY wonderful! The tour was so fun and we have the sunburns to prove it! Megan even took pictures of us while out on the kayaks so we didn’t have to risk our phones if we ‘took a swim’!! So kind and we love the pictures! I highly recommend this and will be back in the future for snorkeling and kayaking!!
  • There are a lot of things to do in Michigan but this is hands down the best tour to sign up for. My family has been talking about it nonstop after we went on a paddle boarding / kayaking snorkel tour. Glen is an awesome guide and was super helpful. I cannot recommend this more.
