For your and our safety, we always run with a first mate. This allows you to relax and enjoy your time on the boat. We clean all fish for you upon return to the harbor.

Our motto is always, "safety first." We are in constant review of the weather forecast. We take pride in this so that you can enjoy the beautiful waters of Lake Michigan.
