2010 SPRING LIGHTHOUSE and FREIGHTER CRUISE

Yes, I want to be part of the 2010 Spring Lighthouse and Freighter Cruise aboard the Keweenaw Star from Marquette to Charlevoix.

Day 1 - Wednesday, May 19:
Meet at the Kewadin Casino in Sault Ste. Marie. Cars will be left here until we return Friday evening. A charter bus will leave at 3:00 pm to take us to Marquette. We will stay at the Super 8 in Marquette and have dinner at Jeffrey's which is next door.

Day 2 - Thursday, May 20:
The bus will take us to the Marquette Marina where we will meet the Keweenaw Star at 8:00 am. Departing the dock, we will make a short trip to the Upper Harbor ore dock if any boats are in, and pass the Marquette Main Light. The Keweenaw Star will then head for the Soo, passing the Lights at Grand Island North, AuSable Point, Whitefish Point Ile Parisienne, Gros Cap and Point Iroquois. Keeping a lookout for any passing freighters, we will move to the shipping lanes for close up pictures. In the St. Mary's River we will check for boats at Algoma Steel, pass down thru the Soo Locks and dock at the Valley Camp dock for the night. The bus will take us to the casino for a buffet dinner and overnight stay.

Day 3 - Friday, May 21:
Boarding the Keweenaw Star at 8:00 am, we will head to Charlevoix. We will travel thu the Rock Cut, see Round Island Light (St. Marys River), Pipe Island Light, the pilothouse from the Lewis G. Harriman and the John Sherwin, check Drummond Island for freighters, pass DeTour Reef Light, Martin Reef, check for vessels in Port Dolomite, pass Round Island and Round Island Passage Lights, head under the Mackinaw Bridge and pass St. Helena Light, White Shoal Light, Waugoshance Shoal Light, Gray's Reef Light, Ile Au Galets Light before arriving at Charlevoix Pier Head Light. Along the way we will get close up photos at any passing ship traffic.

Upon arrival in Charlevoix, we will board our bus for the return trip to the Soo. Along the way, we will stop for dinner at Audieís and at the GLLKA gift shop in Mackinac City. Due to the expected late arrival back at the Soo, your room at the Days Inn is included in the trip cost.

Cost:
Cost is $850.00 person single, or $700.00 per person double room occupancy. Prices included all bus transfers,  room and dinner in Marquette, continental breakfast lunch, non-alcoholic drinks and appetizers on board the Keweenaw Star both days, two nights at the Kewadin Casino in the Soo (Thursday and Friday) and dinner on Friday during the bus trip back to the Soo.
