Great Kayak kayaking is the thing to do on Mackinac- I surprised my 17 yr. old and 16yr. old with this adventure. Soooo happy I did. It was the highlight of the trip. We learned history and a new skill. Gorgeous pictures and lots of laughs. Take the sunset tour!

My husband and I along with our adult son and daughter took the Arch Rock tour on Aug 1. The guides Art and Glenn were amazing! They ensured everyone was safe and were very knowledgeable and social. The water was so clear and beautiful. We stopped for a refreshing swim.
