Gift Shop & Ticket Office016

Pick up your tickets for the Glass Bottom Boat Shipwreck Tour here.

This is really the main hub for any information that you may be seeking when it comes to the Shipwreck Tour, SCUBA diving and any other questions you may have about the general area.

The gift shop and ticket office entryway is a replica of the East Channel Lighthouse which was constructed in 1869. The interior is finished and echoes the lighthouse motif, featuring spruce wood planking throughout, a 22′ cathedral-style ceiling, white pine crossbeams, and four atrium windows. The gift shop design takes full advantage of a spectacular view of Munising Bay and looks upon our tour boats.

There are sweatshirts and T shirts of unusual quality and design, even some shipwreck designs. There is a section for model boats and framed pictures and posters of lake boats, including the Edmund Fitzgerald. Michigan videos are also available.
