We were under motor most of the time even though there seemed to be a decent breeze. You are packed in on the boat like sardines. You sit and don’t move the entire time. Some if the seats are very uncomfortable. The crew was very...More

Extraordinary schooner "tall ship" experience. Designed by John Alden, one of the two greatest naval architects of the era, Red Witch is a magnificent sailing vessel.

The most relaxing and wonderful sailing experience I've ever had. Captain Andrew educates you on the trip a full 2 hour slice into beautiful Lake Michigan! You'll not want it to end. The wind and waves make the whole experience. If it isn't too windy,...More
