Frequently asked questions

What happens if there is bad weather?


If the waves on Lake Michigan are too bad we can stay in Portage Lake and have just as senic and beautiful ride. If the weather is too bad for a comfortable cruise there you may reschedule or recieve a refund.




What do we need to bring with us?


First and most important is your camera. You will be able to take wonderful pictures. You may want to bring a sweatshirt or light jacket, as it can be a little chillier on the water. If you are prone to motion sickness, than you may want to take some dramamine before your cruise. If you would like to enjoy any adult beverages you may bring them along with you, we will have some light snacks as well as water and sodas on board as well.




Where will our cruise take us?


A typical cruise will start Downtown Manistee. We will cruise up and down the Manistee River noting some of the historical landmarks and area attractions. Our journey will eventually take us out to wonderful Lake Michigan for some of the most spectacular views in the area, and returning to dock just in time to enjoy the local area.




Are the cruises for adults only?


Absolutly not. You can bring whoever you would like.




How many people will be on our cruise?


That depends on how many you want to bring with you. We can host parties of up to 6 people at once and as few as 1. These are PRIVATE cruises, not a 'Party Barge' so you don't have to deal with anyone you don't want to include.
