Reservations are highly recommended to make one day in advance
The tour is a two-hour, fully narrated, historical, excursion of two shipwrecks, Bermuda (1860-1870) and Herman H. Hettler (1890-1926). Enjoy a close-up view of the East Channel Lighthouse, built in 1867, and colorful rock cliffs and beaches of Grand Island.
Preserved by Lake Superior’s icy waters, these wooden ships of the industrial ages lay on the bottom where they met the demise and spent their last moments on the surface. American history comes alive as you hear the stories of some of the first great lakes carriers and see our best examples of the areas Shipwrecks.
View the grand beauty of Munising Bay, above and below, aboard Miss Munising, Fireball or our newly constructed, Shipwreck Express. All are Coast Guard Certified vessels equipped with
specially designed, through hull, glass viewing areas. With sometimes as much as 45 feet of underwater visibility, these historical treasures may now be seen by everyone traveling with you in comfort and all while keeping dry!.
This two-hour tour covers a distance of about 9 miles and features sights both above and below the water. Our tour fleet heads toward Grand Island, 13,000 acres of pristine wilderness. Most of the island remains as it was during the fur-trading days of the Hudson Bay Company with a small band of Chippewa Native Americans who lived there.
A delightful narration is provided throughout the cruise. Our Captains and crew members are all history enthusiasts and have studied the area extensively, so each trip is not only entertaining but, educational ( Shhhh! Don’t tell the kids!)
