Had a wonderful cruise last night celebrating our 35 anniversary watching the sunset while enjoying the live music onboard. Staff was great. Would go back and do it again for sure.

A great value. The staff was very accommodating and the boat was comfortable. We went on a sunset cruise. There was entertainment, the guitar player/singer was a nice touch. We brought own food for sandwiches and the beer,wine, liquor offerings were fine. Overall a fantastic experience on Grand Traverse Bay. One recommendation, rethink allowing smoking, while I usually don't mind... More

If you do not have the opportunity to be out on a private boat on the bay, this is a wonderful way to see it close up. We took the two-hour sunset cruise which also included a champagne toast, which was a nice touch. Other reviewers have gone into all the details, so I will skip that here, except to... More

We went for the Happy hour cruise! Fun all the way through and back, we had a lot of room to move around and enjoy the views. Very relaxing, there was a bar on board as well as bathrooms. Although it was really warm, the wind was a little cold at times so I suggest bringing a lite jacket for... More

What can be better than a sail cruise on west Grand Traverse Bay on a large catamaran to watch the sun set and get a free glass of champagne and being entertained by a jovial captain and bartender and meeting other people intent on having a goo time. If your lucky you will see area fishermen haul in a large... More

we did the happy hour cruise and had a really nice time, the only thing that would have been better is to actually cruise around the harbor instead of docking in one place for 2 hours

We took a sunset cruise of the bay during Traverse City's famed Cherry Festival and really enjoyed ourselves. We were able to get some amazing pictures of the festival grounds from the boat which was a plus. It was really easy to find. Just park for free at the Holiday Inn on the bay and head right to their dock... More

Had the chance to board the Nauti-Cat for an evening sunset cruise in late August for a tame Bachelor party. First impression: free, easy to access parking at the Holiday Inn was a plus, especially coming from Boston expecting to pay for parking everywhere. On the Boat: Had a chance to sit on the deckboxes all the way up front... More

We were able to get on the Happy Hour cruise last minute and really enjoyed our trip. Perfect for a relaxing day on the lake! Bar had plenty of options and local craft beer.

My husband and I were looking for something to do on the water with our three boys (3, 7, 11). We took the "kids cruise" at 10am because it only lasted a couple of hours and we figured they wouldn't lose interest that quickly. We found this to be a reasonably priced option and, what do you know, they serve... More
