As one of the largest sailing ships on the Great Lakes, the Manitou is a replica of an 1800s “coasting” cargo schooner. A traditional two-masted, gaff rigged, topsail schooner, Manitou measures 114 feet in length with more than 3000 square feet of sail. Note that there’s no TV, phone (cell phones are discouraged), internet or email.
Trips are limited to 24 individuals, with accommodations provided in 12 double-bunk cabins.
Traverse Tall Ship Company is located at 13258 S.W. Bay Shore Drive (M22) in Traverse City, Michigan, and shares a dock with the fleet from the Maritime Heritage Alliance.
