This is a lovely older unique boat with a very nice crew who make you feel at home as you cruise Lake Charlevoix and Round Lake. Be it sunset or fall color tour, it is very worth doing.

This excursion was very, very good. The trip started off in bad weather (Winds were strong and the waves were high.) which made walking around an adventure. There were some light houses we had to skip due to the weather, but we managed to get...More
