Chartering Manitou


For a truly unforgettable experience, hold your gathering or group event aboard the schooner Manitou. The deck of a tall ship offers a breathtaking venue for many events, including:

  • Weddings
  • Tour Groups
  • Corporate Functions
  • Family Reunions
  • Birthday Parties

There are various options available for chartering, and prices vary depending on the time of year. If you would like your affair catered, Traverse Tall Ship is happy to recommend some of our favorites. Each is familiar with the unique nature of a shipboard event and provides the highest quality service.


“Everyone was very impressed with the ship and the excellent service from the crew.”
