Wine Tasting Cruise and Overnight Stay Aboard the Tall Ship Manitou
Join us aboard the tall ship Manitou on Thursday nights for a 2 hr. evening sail and wine tasting, followed by a dockside overnight stay and full breakfast in the morning. Sample a medley of local wines and enjoy specially catered Mediterranean cuisine (such as stuffed grape leaves, baba ganoush, baked brie with raspberry melba, and pistachio baklava) from Silver Swan Homemade Foods as we ply the sparkling waters of Grand Traverse Bay. After the sail we return to our dock where you spend the overnight secured at our pier, followed by a hearty homemade full breakfast cooked on our wood burning stove in the morning.
There are accommodations for 20 guests in 10 simple private cabins below deck which are rustic and fitting of a mid-1800’s style windjammer. Each is equipped with two built-in, wooden, single bunks, a small fan, and electric lighting. The cabins are bright, clean, comfortable and supplied with fresh linens, towels and warm blankets. There’s plenty of room for a good night’s sleep or, if you’d rather (and the weather’s appropriate) you may bring a sleeping bag and a pad for sleeping on deck under the stars. There are two enclosed toilet facilities on deck that are kept sparkling clean. Access to shower facilities on shore is available for further passenger comfort.
