There’s only one way to get to Power Island, and that’s by boat. A tiny jewel lying just off Neah-ta-Wanta Point in the West Arm of Grand Traverse Bay, the island is home to deer, raccoons, eagles, and many other “Up North” critters. A paddle around the island reveals a variety of shoreline features and water conditions, from the wild and rocky north and western shores to the sandy, shallow, Caribbean-like southern end. This circumnavigation is like a world tour in miniature!
We launch out of Bowers Harbor, cross the channel at Tucker Point and circumnavigate the island, stopping for a gourmet picnic brunch and hiking on the island along the way. An early afternoon return leaves you with plenty of time to explore more of Old Mission Peninsula.
Open-water paddling experience required for this tour.
