Waterfront Recreation

Some daydream about taking a dip in the ocean... but here in the Great Lakes Bay, our waters are salt-and-shark-free, and there's no better place to dive right in! With tall glasses of lemonade and lightning bugs just around the bend, our cool, clear waters are calling, breathtaking scenery beckons, and boating escapades are yours for the taking! The time is now to dip, dive, and drink it all in, as you feel the Pure Michigan lake effect turn your summer daydreams into reality.

So, set sail on Lake Huron's Saginaw Bay aboard a tall ship schooner, take in nearly 10,000 acres of National Wildlife Refuge by boat with a local legend as your guide, cruise Frankenmuth's Cass River with a wine & chocolate tasting tour on the water, hop a charter and drop a line for world-class walleye fishing, or let the rhythmic sound of paddles soothe as you kayak our inland streams and rivers.
