About Great Turtle Kayak Tours
Enter the bay West of the Mackinac Bridge, towards McGulpin Point and glide past the beautiful State Park coastline to arrive the old fashion way... by water! Bridge vistas, Fort Michilimackinac and passing freighters in the distance are some of the favorite highlights of this highly recommended tour.
*Launches from our Mackinaw City location, next to the Visitor's Center at Michilimackinac State Park.
We have several choices of Single Person Kayaks available, from Liquid Logic, Native Watercraft, Paluski, Perception and Hurricane. They are great for beginners and experienced paddlers alike, and will accommodate weight up to 450 lb.
We send a trained tour guide with all of our tours. They give beginner's dedicated attention and instruction on the shore as well as on the water. No matter your skill level, they can also show you the best sights, with the history to go along with it.
Every booking includes a life jacket, paddle, and a beautiful perspective of the waters of Mackinac Island.
Please meet on the beach 15 minutes prior to your reservation, so that we can get out on the water on time.
After adding single kayaks, you can also add tandem kayaks or stand-up paddleboards to your booking.
