Most tours will be offered at no cost to guests and the line will offer select premium tours for an even more unique experience.

“Our passengers’ experience on shore is equally important as their experience aboard our ships,” said Timothy Beebe, Vice President, Pearl Seas Cruises. “Alongside our emphasis on creating a luxury experience aboard the Pearl Mist, is an additional emphasis on providing an upscale and enriching experience while guests are in port.”

  • Manitoulin Island – This Pow-Wow excursion includes a 30-minute narrated tour of the Island, a traditional dance and drum presentation, and concludes with a boardwalk stroll.
  • Henry Ford Museum – Located in Dearborn, MI, guests will take a ride through 200 years of history aboard a Model T Ford. They also receive a Greenfield Village Ride pass for unlimited access on all historic transportation rides, including Model T’s, horse-drawn carriages and more.

Cycling and kayaking opportunities will also be available at various ports throughout each cruise.

“Our Great Lakes itineraries will engage our guests and introduce them to charming port towns and truly breathtaking cruising grounds,” added Beebe. “It is our goal to offer our guests a complete discovery of the charm and history of each port and to bring it to life with our shore tour program.”
