The 29’ beam allows plenty of space for up to 43 passengers to relax on the nets or sight see from the high and dry decks and seating areas. An on-board bar with specialty drinks, two restrooms and a friendly crew will make sailing with Nauti-Cat the highlight of your vacation. Snacks are complimentary on every cruise. « less

This is a TC must do on the Bay. We spent the afternoon enjoying the Bay aboard the Nauti-Cat with friends. Inexpensive afternoon "Happy Hour"

Was in town 8/24 for some business and I went aboard with my girlfriend. At first there was concern that we wouldn't make it on but they took care of us, very affordable drinks, a skipper and bartender that were both super courteous and nice to talk to, and a relaxing and enjoyable sail. Would recommend to anyone passing thru

This cruise of the Traverse City Bay was excellent! The cruise itself is approximately 2 hours and you get a full view of the surrounding area which is beautiful. There are soft drinks and cocktails available on the cruise which are an added bonus. There are also restroom facilities on the boat. I would recommend the 2 o'clock cruise so... More

Our family went on this and had a nice time. The 12 yr old was bored but that's his age. The rest of the family had a nice time. The weather was perfect!

I always seek out a boating experience when traveling. This one fit the bill. Wasn't too long, wasn't too expensive, and was a very good experience. They office is tiny and shares a dock with the hotel (Holiday Inn Resort) we stayed at, so that was ideal. One needs to be flexible as we got a call on our originally... More

My husband and I love to do catamaran rides when we go to the tropics and here we have one right in Michigan, practically in our back-yard! Found a great deal on Living Social's website, so six of us decided to take this beautiful trip. We were originally booked for the noon trip, but were called about 1-1/2 hrs before... More

We did the champaign cruise and loved it! Top shelf drinks all $5, and you can bring your own snacks and water. Our only wish was more comfortable seating...it would bring a cushion next time! The low nets are great to lay on, but when we were in the winds early, people down there were getting splashed a bit. Most... More

After coming up to TVC for the past 30 something years, this is the first time we've ventured out onto the lake via Nauti-Cat, and so very glad we did. We purchased a groupon-type from Up North Live with the hope that during our trip we'd be able to use it. We called a few days prior and booked the... More
