“We had an absolute blast!”
Reviewed May 17, 2010

20 knots sustained with gust to 40 :-). Now that's sailing! Our family of 4 had a wonderful time and hope to go at least once a Summer. Great, fun crew makes it that much better.

“My kid absolutely loved it!”
Reviewed May 13, 2010

I was a little worried about bringing my 10-year-old son on a sailboat. It was a bit windy, there were no video games, etc. To my surprise, the boy actually had a terrific time...and wants to do it again this Summer!

The Captain asked for sailors to help hoist the sail, and my son was on it. He really felt like he contributed to the trip :) There were also other kids on board, for him to hang out with. They pretended they were pirates, took turns at the helm, and even went below deck for a board game or two. They felt very grown up!

While the kiddos were having fun, the rest of us enjoyed great views and relaxation, as the wind carried us around Grand Traverse Bay. What a great escape...we're definitely going back.

“Tall Ship & lots of fun!”
Reviewed October 19, 2009

We took the Moomers Ice Cream sail in August of 2009. We had a great time. They let you help hoist the sails as you set out on the lake. Once sailing, we got to try 6 different ice creams. All of them were great. The sailing was fun, relaxing, and I would definately do it again. It's a great way to be on the water if you are in the Grand Traverse Area.

“A fun time on the water”
Reviewed September 12, 2009

The tall ship schooner, Manitou, is a great way to be on the water in Grand Traverse Bay. The two hour sailing is very relaxing. Be sure to walk around and check out the rooms below. We did an afternoon sailing and I would recommend the evening sailing with the wine event. That would be even more relaxing and fun!
