Day 1: Arrive Traverse City, Michigan

docks where you will board Trilogy. Settle in and relax. After lunch,
cruise to the quaint antique fishing village of Northport on the
western arm of the Leelanau Peninsula.
Day 2: Cruise to Charlevoix, Michigan
Here are shops, art galleries and restaurants to enjoy. Afterwards,
take a leisurely ride down Lake Charlevoix to Boyne City, do some water
skiing or tubing along the way. The golfers will have an opportunity
to hit the links at Boyne Highlands or any of the other nearby golf
Day 3: Bay Harbor

Harbor on Beaver Island and spend some time there, or continue under
the Mackinac Straits Bridge to historic Mackinac Island. There are no
cars on the island; transportation is provided only by bicycle,
horseback or horse-drawn carriage. Take a bicycle trip around the
island (8 miles), enjoy touring the historic two forts, or visit the
town’s many artisan shops. A visit to the Grand Hotel, boasting the
longest outdoor open air porch in the world, is always a delight.

night at a remote island anchorage and return to Mackinaw City for your
