Travel to Mackinaw City! We will depart at 6:00am from the Novi pick-up. There will be a pick-up in Rochester and Bay City as well.

We will have a rest stop along the way for a bathroom break.

Dock porters will transport our group’s luggage to the hotel, where bell staff will place luggage inside guestroom door. Luggage delivery takes approximately 1 hour from docks to guestroom. Anything you may need before having access to your luggage should stay with you in case there are delays.
