Family Cruise

The Route to Treasure

This hour and 15 minute long cruise begins once the Good Fortune departs from Star Line Dock #1 and heads out into the Straits of Mackinac. It sails under the Mackinac Bridge enroute to Fort Michilimackinac where the pirates on board will have an opportunity to fire cannons at the fort! After a brief cannon exchange we steer the ship back to the dock!
