About Our Tours

Grand Island

Often overlooked in favor of Pictured Rocks, Grand Island offers guests a less crowded boat tour option. This large island just north of Munising is a hidden gem that contains rock cliffs taller than Pictured Rocks, old lighthouses, secluded beaches, shipwrecks, bald eagles, and beautiful caverns and waterfalls.

As you round the north end of the island, you’ll come across the Grand Island North Light Station, built in 1867, which sits atop a 175-foot cliff. Towering rock formations, waterfalls, and even shipwrecks await you on the west side of the island (and, if you’re lucky, an unforgettable sunset!)
