I live about 15 miles from the southern Lake Michigan shore and would also like any info anyone has about travel on wild fresh water

I love freighters. I have more pictures and video of freighters than of people in my cruise photo collection. My family think I'm slightly off my rocker
I was in a force 10 gale on the QM2 and visited every deck to try to capture the storm with pictures. I was blown against the wall on the top deck trying to get to the indoor pool for pictures of nature emptying the pool!


Fishlover, The season is pretty short unless you can get on an ice breaker. Probably June through September and my suggestion is based on having lived here all my life.

I know the thread is old but since someone resurrected it

The Yorktown looks like it will be sailing this year
Also Blount cruises but I would watch the route ...the ships are flat bottom and rock & roll in light seas

Lake Michigan can bring seasoned sailors to their knees. Take Dramamine.
