There's no better way to experience all that happens on the St
Mary's River, than aboard a schooner.
On this 5 day trip aboard Schooner Huron Jewel to Sault Ste
Marie, MI via the Soo Locks, we'll get to see freighters making their
way along the shipping channel and lots of spectacular scenery. Bring
your camera and binoculars as there will be lots to see along the
Passengers will board the night prior to departure. The first
morning we will set sail from Drummond Island and go up the St Mary's
River, through Lake George and anchor off Sugar Island for the night.
The next morning we'll go to the Locks, which we will go through.
We'll tie up in Sault Ste. Marie, MI. A full day will be spent at
the dock and you will be free to explore. A visit to the Soo Locks
Visitors' Center is a must to understand how the locks work, the
history of the locks and to fully appreciate how vital the locks are
to national and international shipping and commerce.
We'll then go through the Locks again, southbound this time and
ride the wind and current back towards Drummond.
Since downbound is with the current we may be able to make good
time and head to the DeTour Reef Lighthouse and then anchor on the
southeast side of Drummond in Whitney Bay. The final morning we'll up
anchor and head back Drummond Island's Yacht Haven.
