Preserved by Lake Superior’s frigid waters, these doomed wooden ships of the industrial ages lay on the bottom where they met their fates and spent their final moments in peril on the surface.  American history comes aEast Channel Lighthouselive as you hear the stories and see a select few turn of the century Shipwrecks.

Explore the grand beauty of Munising Bay, above and below, aboard Miss Munising or Fireball, both Coast Guard Certified vessels equipped with
specially designed, through the 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 with just a few settlements on it. 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!)
