Westbound Lighthouse Cruise

Book a Shepler’s Westbound Lighthouse Cruise and remark at five spectacular Lake Michigan lighthouses while taking in the stunning coastline views of Wilderness State Park and beyond.  Learn lighthouse history and maritime lore via our expert guide with the Great Lakes Lighthouse Keepers Association.

In addition to the standard afternoon cruising time, we are offering one morning tour time to give our guests the opportunity to get their day started out on the peaceful water.  You also have the chance to go out in the evening and view the spectacular sunset over Lake Michigan and witness our Great Lakes lights at work!

All Lighthouse Cruises depart from and return to Mackinaw City.
