Eastbound Lighthouse Cruise

Experience a Shepler’s Eastbound Lighthouse Cruise and a front row seat to our near east Great Lakes lights!


Begin with a pass under the mighty Mackinac Bridge, then cross the Straits of Mackinac towards the Round Island Lighthouse and Round Island Passage Light.  We’ll then head east passing the privately owned Bois Blanc Lighthouse, then finally the Poe Reef Light, and Fourteen Foot Shoal Light before turning into the South Channel.  A quick trip up the Cheboygan River takes us past the Cheboygan Crib Light and Cheboygan Front Range Light before heading back to Mackinaw City.  Underway, we’ll sail the clear blue waters of the Lake Huron while hearing plenty of maritime history from our narrator with the Great Lakes Lighthouse Keepers Association.
