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

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

I went on a subset cruise with some exchange students, and I and all f them loved it. It gives a great view of the city from the water. However, they only sail the boat about half of the time

We had a great evening cruise that ended up with a wonderful sunset. We got to use a Groupon which was great! Captain was great, allowed our kids to steer and the bartender was quick and generous with his pours! Cruise took about two hours, well worth it.

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
