    • Of course! Please see the Cruise Policy tab for details.

  • What can I bring?

    • Your favorite food and beverages, snacks, food, fruit roll-ups.

  • Are dogs allowed?

    • We have furry friends of our own, so we know how important it is to bring them everywhere. Unfortunately, due to guests with allergies, dogs are welcome on private charters only. A maximum of two dogs are allowed on a Private Charter, make sure to call and let us know so our crew is aware that there will be dogs on board.

  • Can our group be picked up somewhere else in town?

    • We prefer to have everyone meet at our slip, it just makes it easier for everyone. There is a public dock at Coghlin​ Park in Saugatuck that we can pick you up at on a case by case basis but the charter starts when the Captain leaves our dock and ends when he returns which means this will cut into your time on the water.

  • Can we bring glass?

    • Not a problem, the boat is enclosed so glass doesn't pose as big of an issue. We just ask that you exercise caution with all of your drinks and food so our crew doesn't end up with a huge mess to clean before the next charter. ​

  • Are we required to wear life jackets?

    • Anyone over 6 years old is not required to wear a life jacket on board, we have life jackets available if you would like to wear one. You are responsible to bring a life jacket for toddlers, we do not have those available and toddlers are unable to board without a jacket. It's the law that anyone under 6 needs to wear a life jacket.​

  • Are Captains available for a standard pontoon boat rental? 

    • Our pontoon rentals are dedicated solely for those who do not require a captain. If you would like a captained charter please visit the Private Charter page. 

  • Please message us directly for any other questions or concerns!
