Michigan is surrounded by four Great Lakes and has more than 11,000 inland lakes, all highly accessible to boaters via 1,300 public access sites. What a wonderful place for pleasure boating, sailing, and even Great Lakes cruising. Tall Ships sail out of Traverse City, sailors of all ages race from Detroit to Mackinaw in an exciting annual competition, and history unfolds on chartered schooners. This water is more than just fine for power boaters, sailors, paddlers and those who enjoy all types of watercraft! It's exactly what they need for sport, adventure and fun.
