My husband and I took a sunset cruise with Bob and Kathy and it was amazing. We were told the interesting history of the Elsie and so many educating tidbits about Lake Michigan and South Haven. What a wealth of knowledge they both have. The boat is unique and the sunset was indescribable. Beautiful doesnt even begin to describe the... More

Had a fantastic time being able to take a beautiful sunset cruise on a piece of Great Lakes history. The vessel, the Elsie J, is an operating piece of history that has been in the Jensen family for 3 generations. She had been used as a fishing boat for about 30 years. Imagine all the people that were fed by... More

There are plenty of sunset cruises available, but the journey with Jensen was the experience of traveling back in time to when boats were started by oiling engines instead of turning keys and fortitude mattered more than flare. Bob and Kathy are truly gracious hosts. Without pretense, they share their authentic love of boating and pride in the family history... More

During our stay in South Haven, we booked a sunset cruise on the Elsie J, a vintage fishing tug from days gone by. Captain Bob and his wife, Kathy, were our guides and we had a wonderful time. Kathy shared the family history of the tug and made us feel very welcomed. We were onboard with a family who had... More
