Was a bit brisk, and it threatened to rain, but it turned our to be dry and a very fun brunch cruise. Frow Wendy in the office to the capable captain and her crew, everyone welcomed us passangers aboard for a delicious brunch and a terrific sail. If you are spending some time in Traverse City I highly recommend finding a cruise on the Manitou that works in your schedule. You won't be disappointed.

We went on the Father’s Day Bruch cruise. It was a wonderful experience. Check in was easy, the food was amazing, the crew was fantastic, friendly, engaged in conversation with the passengers and answered everyone’s questions. Captain Lily was very informative about the ship and the history of schooners. The views were beautiful. We would highly recommend taking a Tall Ship sail when in the Traverse City area.

I took my Dad and Mom on the Brunch Cruise for Fathers Day. They thoroughly enjoyed it! (So did I). We received a lemon poppyseed muffin upon check-in which was a nice way to stave off any hunger while waiting to board and set sail. We received a short safety demo before being called party-by-party to board without everyone rushing the boat. :) The Captain and crew were all friendly and knowledgeable, and it was clear their objective was to make sure everyone enjoyed the cruise. Passengers were invited to help raise the sails, and one little boy helped steer the ship for a while. Breakfast was delicious, filling, and made with local ingredients. The Bloody Mary was nice and spicy. The length of the cruise was just right. Will definitely come back and try out one of the evening or ice cream cruises as well!

What an experience!!!!!! My wife booked our Brunch trip as a last minute outing for our camping weekend, and what a gem!!!! From the fantastic ship, to the amazing views, it was well worth the time and money. The crew was amazing, cordial and professional. The captain was very experienced, and answered questions throughout our trip, and was very nice and personable. The brunch was delicious. And the Bloody Mary was exceptional. And the cooking staff were very pleasant. I liked it so much, I am planning on booking a 4 day trip with this ship and company!!! Excellent adventure!!!

We took scout out with our family of 4 for a 2 hour experience. Our kids are 9 and 11 and we had a blast! Captain Caleb was a great teacher and had our boys helping with the sails, which they loved. Was such a fun family experience!
