About Great Turtle Kayak Tours
Enjoy a tour around Mackinac Island harbour. Hugging the docks and joining the harbour traffic until you reach the marina. Glide next to the variety of docked gems as you view the Fort from the water. Test your paddling skills by maneuvering under and through the marina. Venture around sailboats and in between the breakwalls to catch a stunning peek at the lighthouses and passing freighters. Our guides will help you to become comfortable enough to journey just beyond the breakwall and outside the bay to experience the wide open waters of Mission Point and the surrounding islands.
Our Ultimate 16' & 14.5' 2-seater (tandem) kayaks by Liquid Logic & Native Watercraft are super stable and comfortable. You can choose to ride with 2 people, or have our guide accompany a single person. They are great for beginners and experienced paddlers alike, and will accommodate weight up to 650 lb.
We send a guide with all of our tours. They give beginner's dedicated attention and instruction on the shore and on the water. They can also show you the best sights, with the history to go along with it.
Every booking includes your trained tour guide, 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 tandem kayaks, you can also add single kayaks or stand-up paddleboards to your booking.
