Experience a popular educational and historic Northern Michigan attraction seeing lighthouses and shipwrecks in scenic Lake Huron from a glass bottom 36 foot boat. Nautical North Family Adventures offers fun outdoor scenic tours in Cheboygan, Michigan (only 15 miles from Mackinaw City). You will get to see three lighthouses and three sunken shipwrecks during your boat ride. With several trip times every day, including sunset cruises with underwater lights to illuminate the shipwrecks, outdoor family fun is just awaiting your call! We offer private charters for families, groups & corporations. We will tailor the time & destinations to meet your needs. It’s an amazing opportunity to spend some outdoor quality time with family and friends.  In addition, we offer scuba diving and snorkeling trips daily in the Mackinaw Straits area. We also offer scuba certification classes and distance swimming pilot services, as well as kayak rentals!  Check out the photos and information on our website. Grab your reservations soon while we still have preferred times available. We hope to see you soon!
