At a Glance

Nearly 15,000 years ago, the last of the great glaciers retreated, leaving us the Great Lakes — Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario. These vast bodies of water contain more than one-fifth of the planet’s fresh surface water. On a small ship, voyage to all five Great Lakes, discovering pristine natural beauty and learning the colorful stories of the people who’ve sailed and worked these waterways.

  • Sail all five Great Lakes and storied waterways like the Soo Locks and Welland Canal.
  • Discover Mackinac Island, a Victorian-era haven where cars are forbidden and horse-drawn carriages rule the roads.
  • Experience Niagara Falls up-close aboard the Hornblower.
