Seeing this Light
Located in the sometimes treacherous open water of Lake Superior,
approximately 50 miles north of Marquette, and 23 miles southeast of
Manitou island, Stannard's Rock Light is virtually inaccessible to all
but the most seasoned mariner. There are two charter boats
services of which we are aware that take trips out to circle "The Rock. Uncle Ducky
Charters offers trips to Stannard's
Rock, Granite Island and Marquette harbor for $120.00 per person. Click

offers trips out to The Rock and also offers other tours customized to
suit your needs.
