My husband and I were scheduled for the Evening Sail + Bed & Breakfast on July 26, 2014. A huge thunderstorm rolled in shortly after we boarded the ship and understandably, the sail was cancelled. However, the crew (Captain Brendan, Lily, "D", Sam, Jason, and Corey) are an amazing group, very positive and funny. They allowed us the option to... More

After a few traumatic days of vacation (service engine soon light on car, sick child and sick dog), we thought we were going to miss the boat, literally. With minutes to spare after getting a rental car, we rushing to get to the site when we were called by the crew to check on our whereabouts.They helped our family quickly... More

We did the bed and breakfast package with our four kids. It was incredible. The experience was something we will all remember. The crew was attentive, educated and interesting to converse with. They were able to include the kids, ages 9-16, in different activities, including a moonlight game on deck of Go Fish! Breakfast was incredible, French toast, scrambled eggs,... More

Took the overnight trip which sailed across the west bay twice under a light wind. The staff was very friendly and helpful, always offering to assist and clearly keeping the customer at the top of their priorities! Its a pretty simple concept, as far as doing this right, & they do. The staff all search for this type of work... More

It was Memorial Day weekend in traverse city, all the restaurants and shops were very crowded and busy. It was wonderful at the end of the day to relax on the Tall Ship Manitou. The crew was friendly and fun. The weather was beautiful, but a little more wind (waves) could have made this sail memorable. I guess in the... More

I have always wanted to go on an old wooden sailboat like this! It did not disappoint! We took my 2.5 year old twins and 5 year old and they LOVED it!! We did the ice cream sail which was delicious and obviously a hit with the kids. The cocktails available for purchase were very reasonable and tasty on a... More

It's always a FUN FUN time sailing on Grand Traverse Bay. Each adventure is a new one from the Smiling Captain Brendan to first Mate Corey who picks up a fiddle and starts playing amazing music. Kids and adults can pretend they are pirates, hoist the sales or ask the Captain what are those fuzzy things up in the rigging.... More

We will always remember the Manitou ship we enjoyed towards the tail end of our 1-year wedding anniversary trip to TC. Friendly folks. Staff that play the violin with heavenly finesse. Some ice cream (or lunch depending on what you sign up for), and a fair price. This is a nice activity, especially towards the end of your trip. Very... More
