Join us for a beautiful experience under the night sky for two hours. The night sky is a vast, beautiful region that not many have the privilege of enjoying from the deck of a ship.
A professional astronomer will be on the sail to help you identify what is visible during your sail. You’ll learn about the history and science of the night sky while enjoying the peacefulness of being under sail after sunset. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to experience the Great Lakes in a whole new way.
Some highlights of this 2-hour sail include:
Learn about galaxies, stars, astronomy, and history
Experiencing the Great Lakes at night and much more!
