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.

A special highlight with this particular direction in 2024 is the opportunity to witness the lights at work and a Lake Michigan sunset during an evening tour from 7:00-10:00 p.m.  The only date this is offered is Thursday, July 11th.

All Lighthouse Cruises depart from and return to Mackinaw City.
