All trawler school classes begin on Saturday morning and terminate on the following Tuesday afternoon. Early boarding on Friday is part of the package and highly encouraged. It enables you to get comfortable and oriented with the vessel and marina, stow your gear, meet your instructor and enjoy an evening in Traverse City. Late departure is included and also encouraged if you are not taking the Trawler ACE charter. We want you to not be rushed and rested before your commute home.
