This incredible three day excursion begins on Tuesday afternoon in Mackinaw City where we board a Sheplers ferry boat to dinner and a night at the world-renowned Grand Hotel on beautiful Mackinac Island. After a magnificent breakfast, we will climb into horse drawn carriages for the ride to the Sheplers motor vessel HOPE. After boarding the HOPE, we will make our way across northern Lake Huron past the Martin and Detour Reef lights as we turn into the St. Marys River. As we make our way upstream, we will pass the Pipe and Round Island lights before making our way into Canadas beautiful North Channel to see the Shoal Island and Wilson Channel Range lights.
