This is one of the best places to experience Lake Michigan from lighthouses to secluded beaches and a tucked-away waterfront ghost town. Check out the bottom of our page for access sites. Our warm, freshwater makes it easy to spend the day afloat!


Our area was made for kayaking. With several protected harbors on Little and Big Bay de Noc, our coastal paradise is every paddler’s dream, not to mention the beautiful views! Check out our video below as we hit some of the best kayaking spots in Delta County!


From sailing to yachting, the Bays de Noc is a great location for boaters. There are several slips in the area available for transient boaters, and our harbors are a short distance from downtown locations. Our closely-knit communities make it easy to take day-trips to several different locations. Ride the Bays de Noc area by Yacht in our video below for some inspirations on places to visit by water! Reserve your boat slip below!


Take a quick tour of some of the winding waterways that flow through Delta County into the Little Bay de Noc of Lake Michigan. Over 200 miles of coastline along Lake Michigan is fed by many freshwater streams that flow into the Big and Little Bays de Noc. Hike, fish, kayak, and cool off in one of these or the many other rivers that flow through the Escanaba area!
