Charity Island Dinner Cruise

Adventure to Charity Island in Saginaw Bay for a dinner cruise. Enjoy a fine dinner, including opportunity to enjoy a taste of Great Lakes perch, and exploration of a historic lighthouse and island coastal beachfront. The ride out, aboard the Northstar, offers an experience on a historic commercial fishing vessel retrofitted for this dinner cruise. Although no longer an active fishing vessel, this trip offers passengers a chance to get out on the water for a boat ride and gain a perspective about the look and feel of historic Great Lakes commercial fishing vessels. The Northstar was built by the Nolan boat company in 1949. She started as a Commercial fishing boat operating in Lake Michigan, later adapted for use as ferryboat which ran for about 30 years out of Cheyboygan  to Bois Blanc Island, Mich. Big Charity Island (along with Little Charity Island) is itself rich in fisheries history and heritage.
