Grand Traverse Gourmet Cruises offers gourmet all inclusive yacht charters on Northern Lake Michigan. Set your own itinerary from any port throughout the summer sailing season or choose from one of our seasonal Epicurean excursions in the spring and fall departing from Traverse City. Extend your sailing trip with a stay before or after at the Grey Hare Inn Vineyard Bed and Breakfast in the heart of Northern Lake Michigan wine country with a special rate for sailing cruisers.
On the other side of the Lake cruise to Door County from Historic Downtown Menominee, extending your vacation at the Waterfront Inn. Or if enjoying the ambiance of marina life while never setting sail is more your style, then stay aboard under our Boat and Breakfast option.
US Coast Guard licensed Captain Jay and certified gourmet chef, Cindy, lead you in exploration of the history of the Grand Traverse or Door County & Menominee regions, the watershed, and the agricultural heritage of the area. Packages includes sailing five days/five nights aboard the Balia, a 42 ft Catalina sailboat with 3 cabins; gourmet breakfast, lunch, and 3 dinners, plus land excursions. Along with the five nights of onboard accommodations, an additional night's stay with the choice of either the night before departure or the night at the end of the cruise determined by both the guests as well as the boat schedule.
