Reviews for Big Charity Private Marina
wow, mosquitos, 2016-07-07
Captain: , SE Michigan (70)

Stopped in to take a look on our way by. Access was fine from the west in our shoal draft little sailboat. Deep channel into the marina. Several Ok wood docks. However, when we got off to walk to the lighthouse, the mosquitos swarmed. Wow. Vicious. Escaped back to the boat and out to open water.



Dinner Cruise, 2012-01-09
Captain: , LaSalle MI (585)

There is now a dinner boat, leaving from Au Gres, that tours the Island and offers dinner. Nice ride, good dinner.



Good Hideout , 2008-09-15
Captain: , Oscoda, MI (51)

While traversing the Saginay bay it may give some sanctuary from weather but the inlet on the North side to the harbour is shallow on approach with shoals to the West. Old Light House still accesable as of 2008.
