Northern Michigan Vacations: How can an ocean compete with the refreshing, (fresh)water of Grand Traverse Bay? Set sail on a historic schooner, speed into the sunset on a jetski, or test your balance on a paddleboard. See for yourself why Traverse City got voted number one boating town in the nation by BoatU.S.
A sunset cruise aboard this catamaran tour boat is by far one of the most memorable ways to experience the bay. Four cruises daily; or rent the whole boat for you and up to 45 of your closest friends. Cash bar and bathroom on board. 231.947.1730, nauti-cat.com.
Float up to 80 feet above Grand Traverse Bay for a seagull’s view of one of the biggest, cleanest, freshwater bays on earth. Try East Bay Parasail (eastbayparasail.com) or Traverse Bay Parasail (tbparasail.com) for solo and tandem flights.
If you love speed and don’t want to miss an inch of Grand Traverse Bay’s 300 square miles, a powerboat is a must. Sail & Power Boat Rental has ski boats, pontoons and jet skis—plus all the kneeboarding, tubing and waterskiing paraphernalia you’ll need for a perfect afternoon. 231.922.9336,theboatrental.com.
