First and foremost, please be aware that although scheduled for Monday, September 13th, this trip will be determined by the weather. High wind or heavy rain (among other conditions!) will cause us to travel on Tuesday, September 14th. The boat captain makes this decision the morning of the trip. We will be riding aboard the MISHE- MOKWA, so definitely bring a jacket and hat if you plan to sit on the top deck!
This event is a fundraiser for the Leelanau Historical Society showcasing the unique history of the Manitou Islands. Amenities on the island are primitive, this includes pit toilets and one source of potable water. Unforeseen circumstances do occur that cause us to alter our plans, we kindly ask for your patience and flexibility if we need to change our agenda while on the island. We promise you will have a unique historical experience.
Parking: You may park in the Leelanau Historical Society lot (and nearby) at 203 E. Cedar Street, which is behind the Old Art Building and next to the Leland Library. (A couple of blocks walk to the dock.) There may be spaces available near the dock. To find the Manitou Island Transit dock at Leland Harbor, cross the bridge and turn left at W. River Street, immediately after the Leland Mercantile. You will see signs for Fishtown and the ferry.
Dress: Good walking shoes/boots are essential; dress in layers and include a light jacket, depending on the weather. Hats, backpacks, bug spray, sunscreen, or bags come in handy. A watch is recommended.
