Swim Pilot Services

Advanced swimmers interested in open water swimming in the Straits of Mackinac (alongside the Mighty Mack!) now have a “safe” way to accomplish this dream! Nautical North family Adventures has been piloting swimmers in the Straits area since 2017. We follow alongside and help keep other vessels aware while you swim. (Freighter traffic will not be diverted, you may need to board our vessel to allow them passage). Give us a call to set up a date to swim the Straits.

Please print, sign, and bring along the liability waiver before swimming in the Straits.

Price: $450 (Can be split among swimmers)
