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.
