Having had such a good time last year with Captain Lance on his Celtic Sol sightseeing charte, we decided to do it again this summer to again watch the ships come in for the annual Coast Guard Festival. Only this year we decided to share the day with some good friends of ours. Captain Lance was again a masterful host on yet another perfect day on the lake. Our friends had never met Captain Lance and were utterly captivated with his wit, charm, and knowledge of Lake Michigan. Needless to say, we all had a great time on a wonderful adventure. Thanks Captain Lance

We did this tour the beginning of July and had a great time. Communication with the captain prior to our arrival was outstanding, he answered his phone personally every time I called. We booked this for 1 to 3 PM for three of our grandchildren and ourselves. We booked this for 6 to 8 PM for our sons and their wives. A good time was had by all. The only problem was for my four year old grandson who had to wear a vest provided by the captain even though the one he was used to was Coast Guard approved and he found it to be very uncomfortable.This is not to say that that gave me a negative impression of the captain as he has liability issues to content with which I totally understand. I would definetly due this again when in the area and hope that Lance stays in the business so that I can.

Your party held up quite well, considering the incredible heat that you had to endure. The only respite was while we were on Lake Michigan. That you for being such good sports.

A fun and perfect day on Lake Michigan with Captain Lance. Irish music, funny jokes and a comfortable and well kept boat all made for a great excursion. Captain Lance clearly enjoys his office on the water and enthusiastically shares it with all his guests. All in all a great way to see the Grand Haven shoreline.

Having Evie and her two friends, the O'Hara sisters, Kathie & Ann onboard was a genuine treat. They were a fun group and I enjoyed their company!

On a beautiful lazy summer day, Captain Lance Timmer took us for an adventurous Lake Michigan tour aboard the Celtic Sol to watch the Coast Guard ships coming to the annual Coast Guard Festival. Captain Lance and his lovely wife Diane entertained us while awaiting their arrival. Their knowledge of the area and his expertise in handling the boat made for a most exciting day! Thank you Captain Lance!
