Awesome ride especially if you can sit on the roof. Lake Michigan and the sunset speaks for themselves.

Kathy and Bob were awesome hosts, and although the boat is a little old... We had a very memorable 4th of July watching the fireworks from the middle of the lake. They've inspired us, and think we may make this an annual trip.

Not only were they professional, but they worked around our schedule, were super friendly and personable, and even gave us a tour of the boat and engine. Will return!

Kathy and Bob are so nice we thoroughly enjoyed our time on the boat. We called the day we wanted to charter and they said"Sure, we can go out this afternoon" Ride a boat, meet fun people, have fun. Highly recommended!
