TALL SHIP MANITOU


Manitou Summer Daysails

Our summer sailing season begins Memorial Day weekend!

A Frequently Asked Question:  “The forecast says 50% chance of rain, will it rain on my sail?”

This is a common summer forecast in this area. The majority of time we will see little or no precipitation. We watch the weather radar carefully and will cancel in the event of extended periods of heavy rain.

Please note:

  • Daysails are 2 hour cruises*
  • Manitou and the dock area are a smoke free environment.
  • Prices do not include gratuity for the crew.
