We spent over an hour poking around this relatively small ship. The tour was very informative, don't miss it! I'm not sure that I would have wanted to be on this ship anchored in Lake Huron in a good storm!

There is no parking directly for this lightship. Community parking is close. The fee to enter is $25 for a Family of 3 or more. This appears to be a little expensive for what you get from the tour rounds. There is no guided tour...More

Jerry was so knowledgeable and personable, he has truly found the best retirement job for him. The ship is a wonder to see as it’s really different than anything else we’ve seen before due to being a lighthouse. This tour was packed with fun facts,...More
