Traverse Tall Ship Co. Traverse City. Another Great Michigan Getaway!
So sit right back and I’ll tell the tale of the cruise offerings from Traverse City. No worries! They do not offer a 3 hour tour. I promised you some really cool ideas for Getaways and Long weekends. Ready? Here is the first of my series! The Tall Ship Co. based in Traverse City has a “High Seas Adventure” waiting for you. Enjoy the * Astronomy Cruises – Sunny Days and Star Studded Nights. Coming up on October 1 -4. Sounds dreamy! Bring your best guy or gal on a *Wine Tasting Cruise – International and Locally featured Wines paired with amazing scenery and cuisine. There are more than a dozen local Wineries in the vicinity of Traverse City. Shake off that bad day with a * Micro Brew and Pizza Cruise – Right Brain Brews and Crusted Creations Pizza. My friends thought this was a winner also. Wouldn’t be nice to stay afloat on the * Windjammer Cruises. Lazy weekends are satisfying with the * Bed and Breakfast Cruises. Oh My! And there is much more! Midwest Living Magazine even did a very nice layout on this “Cruise Line”. Enjoy the colors of Northern Michigan, sail away on the spectacular lakes. Sit back, take a load off, cell phones be damned and leave your stress behind. Enjoy the wonders that this beautiful state has to offer. Stunning shorelines, local traditions, the best people anywhere. Take it all in. You deserve it. Just one of many places you cannot afford to miss here in Michigan. Can you tell I LOVE Michigan! Check out the website. You can even give a Gift Certificate. Great idea, huh! After all, there are only 94 days till Santa makes his list, checks it twice and Rudolph gets to change his nose bulb!.
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. With a 62 passenger capacity and over 3,000 sq. ft. of sail, this stately vessel weighs nearly 100 tons, has a 21′ beam (width), an overall length of 114 feet and a height of over 75,’ so there is plenty of space for sitting and moving around the decks while under sail. There are overnight accommodations for 24 guests in 12 private cabins which are rustic and fitting of a mid-1800’s style windjammer. Sailing out of Traverse City from Memorial Day weekend through early September, Manitou offers a noon sail, afternoon sail and a popular evening sail, with each adventure being two hours in length (a specially catered picnic meal is included on the evening sail). Additional excursions include Wine Tasting Cruises on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
