The Mariner contains truly unique shops and an art gallery. We also feature live music on our stage and events in our boutique theater. The Mariner is unlike any other place or venue in the Thumbcoast area.
For over 85 years, steamship Ste. Claire transported generations of Detroiters to Boblo Island, an amusement park nestled in the waters between the US and Canada. When the vessel comes under threat of ruin, a doctor, psychic and amusement park fanatic unite to save their beloved steamship from the scrapyard. Interweaving local lore and mythology, "Boblo Boats" explores the whitewashed history of amusement parks and one crew's crusade to bring back the memories.
An eclectic shop with items that are as unique as the space they occupy.
