Had a great pre-season tour with Will! They made sure we had everything we needed and gave us a short training at the start of our trip. Everything was smooth sailing from that point on!

We took the sunset SUP tour in early September and had a great experience! The weather was perfect; low 70s and I didn't get overheated while paddling or cold even with the cool lake water. We'd...

Sydney made our trip amazing. She is a great tour guide—patient, kind, and well knowledgable. I wanted to go kayaking when I first visited Mackinac Island. Sydney gave me a boat that I felt comfortable in and helped me overcome my initial nervousness because this was my first time kayaking. I had a great time and enjoyed the views of river and island learned a ton more about the island and the local folklore, which was a real treat. Any visitor should not miss out on this experience!!!
This is a must do and the thing that made my trip to Mackinac Island unforgettable! Anthony was a fantastic local guide. He also made sure I felt confident kayaking (for the first time) and safe on the water and gave great instruction to make sure I had the right technique. I’m so glad I joined Great Turtle for my trip around to Arch rock!
Our Guide Glenn was awesome. We did the rock maze snorkel tour out to Arch Rock in the morning. Glenn gets a 5 star review. Water was beautiful and crystal clear. He pointed out sights on the water and the island. Shared lots of interesting information about the area. With Glenn's instruction we all got the hang of the kayaks quickly and easily. Highly recommend doing a kayak tour. Another plus- no crowds Why did I drop a star off ? some lack of communication when booking This was a snorkel tour. You wear a wet suit. Anything under your wet suit is going to get wet. There are no changing rooms to get into or out of the wetsuit. This was not made clear when we booked the tour . You are going to have to strip down in the open or trek down to one of the public bathrooms. Not a pleasant experience trying to change out of or into a wetsuit in a public restroom. I would recommend they string up at least maybe a tarp or one of those pop up shower tents you can buy on amazon for 40$ This isn't a problem for the regular tour because you wear your regular clothes. You might get a little wet but generally not to bad.
My husband, son, & I did the sunrise kayak tour with Anthony, and I would say that without a doubt, this was the highlight of our time here! None of us had any kayaking experience prior to this, but Anthony was such a wonderful (and patient) guide and teacher! It was 100% worth every penny!!
Highly recommend this kayaking tour and company! We did the Arch Rock excursion which was easy enough for beginners and just absolutely beautiful. Our guide was Jacob and he shared with us several folklore stories and made the tour super enjoyable for us. One of the members in our party decided to back out last minute due to extra wind, and Great Turtle refunded us for that tour no questions asked. Five stars for sure!
