Tall Ship Manitou - Day Tours, Traverse City

4.6
#1 of 34 in Outdoors in Traverse City
The Tall Ship Manitou is a replica of an 1800’s “coasting” cargo schooner, similar to those that sailed the Great Lakes and the Atlantic Ocean. Specifically designed for passenger service, her hull was constructed in Portsmouth, New Hampshire in 1983 and finished by Vermont carpenters on Lake Champlain. With a 59 passenger capacity, there is plenty of space for sitting and moving around the decks while under sail. Her overall length of 114 feet, beam of 21 feet, and displacement of nearly 100 tons ensures a comfortable, relaxing motion, soothing to both landlubbers and “old salts” alike.

Sailing out of Traverse City, Michigan, Manitou offers a Noon Sail, Afternoon Sail, and a popular Evening Sail. Each adventure is two hours in length. Manitou also offers multi-day cruises in September.Specially catered meals are included on the Evening Sail. 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.

Manitou meets or exceeds all U.S. Coast Guard regulations for construction, stability, safety equipment, and electronics for vessels in passenger service. The U.S. Coast Guard licensed captain has many years of experience, and together with a capable crew, you can rest assured of being in good hands.
