Straits Area Tour Company

At Straits Area Tour Company, “ugly" has transformed from a schoolyard taunt to a term of endearment, bringing life to the crew's trusty vessel, an authentic North Atlantic wooden lobster boat known lovingly as Ugly Anne. With seating for up to 30, Anne chauffeurs passengers through the waters surrounding Mackinac Island on three unique tours, during which guides pack each voyage with informative tidbits on topics ranging from the Mackinac Bridge’s construction to maritime history, such as how a local Scout troop invented sailing as a way to practice their knots. Alternatively, privately chartered trips can trace custom routes through the depths or escort parties to landmarks such as the Les Cheneaux Islands or the largest island in the Straights of Mackinac, Bois Blanc.
