Whole Boat Rental

The Star is available for private charters and groups from early May through mid-October. Departures will be according to our scheduled departure time. We will work with groups who privately charter the boat, and some variances in departure time may be made, but will be at the Star of Saugatuck’s discretion.

PAYMENT: Credit or debit cards, cash or check are accepted forms of payment. A cash discount is given when paying with cash or check.

Cruise length is 1½ hours with the route being on the Kalamazoo River, Lake Kalamazoo and entering Lake Michigan with permitting lake conditions. Options for a two hour private charter are available. Call to ask for departure times. If the captain determines that Lake Michigan is too rough to enter, the entire cruise will be on the Kalamazoo River.

Rates quoted do not include food or beverage (Alcoholic or Non-Alcoholic).
