About Sunshine Charters Day Tours
Enjoy a short cruise around the south side of Round Lake while viewing amazing homes and boathouses on our way out to Lake Charlevoix where we pop the sails. After sailing Lake Charlevoix, take a break with a quick swim before heading back through Round Lake’s north side. Blow the horn to open the bridge as we pass the “mushroom houses,” travel through the channel into Lake Michigan and spend the rest of the trip sailing the Great Lake before returning to the dock.Help raise and trim the sails or take the wheel and feel the exhilaration of steering a 40 ft long, 24ft wide custom offshore sailing catamaran. Whether a short swim off the boat or catching a spectacular sunset, Sunshine Charters will provide a one of a kind experience.

Awesome experience during my annual getaway with family! Captain Josh was very professional and informative. It is obvious he loves what he does for a living.

This was a super fun trip while we were camping. Josh was very nice and accommodating. We did have a bit of a delay due to the radar but he let us wait it out in the boater area inside. He was also incredibly generous when it came to our young children and allowed them to just be kids. 100% recommend and we will be sailing with him again!
