EXPLORE BY BOAT

Two centuries ago, when the governor of the Michigan Territory stopped at Mackinac Island on an expedition, his team was struck by the variety and delicacy of the fish – especially the rich flavor of the whitefish. Charter fishing boats that operate in the Straits of Mackinac find that to be true still today. But even if you’re not a fisherman, you can still get out on the water and enjoy the beauty of Mackinac Island from lake level in a kayak, sailboat or a sunset cruise under the Mackinac Bridge. Or, if you’re a thrill seeker, get up high above the water and go parasailing.
