Captain Michelle made our excursion absolutely perfect! Scout is immaculate and beautiful and a dream to sail on. Experienced sailors and novices - both will love this excursion.

We started our evening meeting Michele and Jamie, who escorted us to the 70 ft schooner called Scout. We stowed our overnight bags and were offered beverages and snacks before we shoved off, just before 7:00 p.m.

The weather was perfect! Low 70s partly sunny with a nice breeze. We were quickly sailing Grand Traverse Bay, at a nice clip. At the beginning of the sale, Michelle pulled out a map to show us what our route was likely to be. Both Michele and Jamie we're familiar with all of the sites along the shoreline, and most things in the Grand Traverse area. During the sale, we were able to watch as the tall ship, their other vessel, gracefully glided through the bay, sales billowing gracefully in the wind.

Though it was more cloudy toward sunset, the colors were divine. Michele took photos of us with the sunset in the distance, as well as others during the sail. And to top it off, we saw a glorious rainbow on our way back toward port.

After we docked, Michele and Jamie familiarized us with the boat and departed with good night wishes. We spent an intimate evening on board, which we had stocked with wine and charcuterie selections.

I highly recommend you experience this sailing trip, whether you spend the night on the boat, or not. It's very well worth it and a great value.

I believe the next time we're in Traverse City, we'll take a brunch trip on the tall ship to see if it's as exciting to be on it as it is to view it from a short distance.

What an amazing experience sailing on the Scout with my wife on our anniversary. Michelle was an awesome Captain, full of energy and extremely knowledgeable when it came time for us to take over the sails. We will definitely be back for a 9 hour tour with Tall Ships in hopes to have Michelle join us yet again as Captain. Thank you for your time and looking forward to the next adventure ️️️

Captain Michelle was great. Will do this again. Those of us who wanted were able to work as crew when we wanted.
Everyone had a great time.

We received this gift from friends for our wedding, and it was hands down one of the best experiences. Captain Michelle is a fantastic sailor and gave us a fun experience. We got to enjoy the boat, and she really encouraged us to have a good relaxing time. This is definitely an experience I would recommend to anyone, and want to have again with family. I've never sailed before, and with this little taste, I want to do more...unfortunately I'm in Kansas lol.

We had a great trip sailing on the Scout with Michelle as our captain. She had our boys help set the sails and man the helm. She taught our boys and us some of the sailing lingo. She shared information and stories about the Traverse Bay and sailing. Everyone in our group had a wonderful time sailing with Michelle on the Scout!

Captain Michelle was great! She let us get involved as much or as little as we wanted. BYOB on board and have a party! We cranked up the Captain Ron soundtrack. We're definitely going to do this again.
