Where has the summer gone? The kids are going back to school and Labor Day is almost here! After this weekend, we will be running tours on the weekends only through the first weekend of October. However, if you wish to have a private charter, we can accommodate you on any day.
So, because of limited hours and unpredictable weather, we must have reservations with a phone number (for call back).
Come and join us for a lovely Fall tour in September!!🍂🍁🍃

I had the pleasure of taking the tour on my vacation and loved it! Not only was the waterway breathtaking, but it is a historical landmark in it's own right. It was also a great chance to see Burt Lake and many of the local cottages in the area. On my next trip to Michigan I hope I can go back!

The Keewaydin Queen II will be leading the boats through Alanson! We wonder which one will win the big prize? We heard that there might be a pirate ship or two that are competing!!☠💣☠
