Sit back and relax – listen to the water running off the paddlewheels as you gently glide down the Kalamazoo River. See Saugatuck from the water, a totally different view from what you see on land, and take in the majesty of Lake Michigan.

Take one of our many daytime cruises, or go for a sunset cruise taking in the beauty of a sunset on Lake Michigan. Snack bars onboard serve cold pop, water, or if you prefer a beer, glass of wine or mixed drink and chips or candy to snack on.

It’s fun for all ages – children see boats of every shape size, and you never know when we’ll see a fox, deer, or possibly a bald eagle! Our narrations are fun and informative!  It’s an opportunity to “escape” all the pressures of daily life, and take in the natural beauty of the area.  It’s a time to enjoy the pleasure of friends and family who have come with you on the trip; you may even make some “new friends” along the way!

The Star II is U.S. Coast Guard certified and annually inspected, and has all its safety equipment onboard – 100% adult and child life jackets, ship-to-shore radios, cell phone, and radar equipped.

Our cruises are on a first come first serve basis. In 2017 we are beginning a new reservation policy for upper deck seating for the evening cruise only. Between July 1st and September 3rd, and Saturday evening during the month of September, 2017, for upper deck seating we will be offering the opportunity to purchase guaranteed upper deck seating for an additional fee. Our upper deck seats 80 passengers. When making online reservations (can be done 30 days in advance of the date you wish to take the cruise) or purchasing tickets the day of the cruise (subject to availability) we will be selling reserved upper deck seating. This will guarantee you/your party a seat on the upper deck. Seating will still be on a first come/first serve basis, and make sure to keep your part together when boarding. Lower deck tickets will be available at our regular fare. Upper deck tickets are limited to 80 passengers (adults, children and infants): ADULTS (Ages 13 and Up) add an additional $4.00 per ticket to our regular fare, and all children (infants through 12) are $13. You will be given an approximate boarding time the day of the cruise when you purchase your tickets, or when you pick up your tickets. Any unsold upper deck tickets will be available on a first come/first serve basis after all upper deck ticketed passengers have been seated.
