About Great Turtle Kayak Tours
Enjoy a spectacular tour around the Mackinac Bridge. Glide through the clear waters as you view Fort Michilimackinac from the water. Venture around passing sailboats near the shores of the Michilimackinac State Park and take in the gorgeous views. Test your paddling skills by maneuvering under the bridge and around the towers. Our guides will help you to become comfortable enough to journey just beyond the shore to experience the wide open waters of the Straits and to catch a stunning peek at the lighthouse and passing freighters.
*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 Mackinaw City.
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.
