With Traverse Tall Ship Co. you will make memories to last a lifetime aboard the 114’ schooner Manitou or the classic sailing yacht Scout, as we ply the spectacular waters of Grand Traverse Bay! The company was founded in 1987 with the mission of providing the highest quality customer service, and an affordable way for the average person to experience the thrill of sailing. 

Current owners, Capt. Dave and Mary McGinnis, first became involved with the company when Dave was hired to command the newly acquired schooner Manitou back in 1990. They assumed the mantle in 2004 and haven't looked back. Manitou's 2 hour sails (many of them themed), bed & breakfast packages, and multi-day windjammer cruises offer a wide variety of popular choices. 

After several years, Dave and Mary felt it was time to offer a more intimate and customized sailing option for those folks who might not want to be in a large group setting. So in June 2013 Sailing Yacht Scout joined the Tall Ship family, to great accolades from all who sailed aboard her! The 38 ft. Scout is ideal for a private group of six or fewer guests.  Because you are reserving the entire boat, we can work with you to design the ideal experience!

Traverse Tall Ship Co. is proud to have received a "Certificate of Excellence" from TripAdvisor.  Our vessels meet the rigorous standards of the US Coast Guard and State of Michigan and our licensed captains and crew act with the highest degree of professionalism.

“Awesome, so much fun. Great crew!!!! Enjoyed the sail immensely!” – Sammie O.

We look forward to sailing with you in Traverse City!
