What a great way to see beautiful scenery, lovely homes, enjoy a glass of wine, and learn about local history! I can see this being perfect for a group outting or corporate retreat. Such fun and so pleasant and enjoyable. Fall Color Tour - perfect!!! See the colorful leaves on the hills and woods along the waterway.

Relaxing ride on the boat that heads around Saugatuck initially before heading out towards the Lake for a while, lots of interesting history from the Skipper with good view of the local wildlife. About 90 minutes long with reduced hours in the off season.

If you want to see some really nice cottages and take a short boat trip into lake Michigan, then this is an inexpensive way to do it.

Friday 10-14 was a beautiful day and my husband suggested we take a boat cruise in Saugatuck during our Michigan trip. So glad we did. Friday was a beautiful day. The captain and his assitant were awesome. They clearly cared about our safety and about sharing the area. His narration was very informative. We learned a lot while just sitting... More

This ride was relaxing perfect family time awesome views little history and views you can't get on land. The pricing wasn't bad at all. Ride was exactly 1.5 hrs with bathrooms, cash bar, and cash snacks on the boat which made the experience even all that better. During the summer top deck is best get there first during approaching fall... More

Great trip, narrated by the captain. It was a lovely sunny day & we were lucky that some people wanted the shade upstairs, as we definitely wanted the sun, coming from the UK! The trip took us down the Kalamazoo River to Lake Michigan & out onto the lake for a while - a smooth trip on the river &... More

We chose a warm summer day to take the boat ride down the Kalamazoo River. The breeze and the covered top deck kept us cool and comfortable. The boat was clean and the seating was comfortable. If you want to sit outside on the top deck, I would suggest you arrive early and get in line because top deck seats... More
