This special Westbound cruise offers a unique opportunity to cruise the western Straits of Mackinac to see the sun set behind White Shoal lighthouse and to use the lighthouses in the way they were designed - to guide mariners safely on their way at night.
As the skies darken after sunset, you will discover how each lighthouse’s unique light characteristic serves to inform mariners of their exact position, and the history of the various different illuminating methods used in lighthouses over the years. A GLLKA volunteer expert will be on board throughout the cruise to narrate and provide answers to questions throughout the cruise.
The cruise is $49.50 per person, children 5 - 12 years - $27.50, and children under 5 ride free. Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling Shepler's at (800) 828-6157 or (231) 436-5023.
