At 47’, the Nauti-Cat cuts through the water with a smooth, comfortable sail that first time sailors and longtime sail enthusiasts will enjoy. 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.

This is one of the best things you can do while visiting TC. Great crew (the booking people could be nicer though) and a great time. Been on a few times and it has always been a pleasant ride. Recommend the sunset cruise, trying the mate's special catnip and cat-nap drinks, and relaxing in the netting (during calm periods, you... More

I had reserved this company's services for my bachelorette party. We are not from the area and had 100% confidence in booking online tickets. The company looked reputable and I had received the tickets to print out and bring for admission on the catamaran. We were all geared up for an evening out with drinks and a live band. On... More

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

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
