The Manitou crew were exceptional and loved how they all made their way around the ship to talk to everyone and get photo opps. Kids loved being able to steer and talk to Captain Bret. Wonderful experience for all aboard💜

We recently enjoyed the Thursday night sail. Due to storms in area we sailed a little late. When we arrived at the boat the crew was handing out rain ponchos which was very nice. Once on board they worked very hard to dry things off....More
