From the moment we stepped on the catamaran until the very last picture was complete-relaxation! Cpt John and his wife Cpt Barb provided us with snacks and... More

You wont go wrong taking a trip on the Cat's Meow! Everything about it was absolutely perfect. Captains John and Barb really know how to take care of their guests/customers. I've been on a few catamarans ( in St. Lucia, St. Thomas and a smaller catamaran on Lake MI) and I'd have to say this was by far the best... More

Captains John and Barb were fantastic hosts; decorating their catamaran to celebrate our birthdays, offering drinks and snacks, taking music requests, and surprising us with delicious chocolate covered strawberries. They really personalized the cruise by... More

My family spent the afternoon with two wonderful captains- John and Barb. They were the best hosts; meeting the needs of all guests, provided light snacks and drinks, music, and a wonderful day on the lake. The ride on their beautiful 38 foot catamaran was our best experience in South Haven. They surprised us with delicious chocolate covered strawberries. I... More

Spending an afternoon on Lake Michigan with hosts Captain John and Barb is sure to make you forget life's stress. The 38 ft catamaran holds up to 6 people for a cruise, and it comfortable and relaxing from the first step on board. John and Barb anticipate your every desire and need, and are always two steps ahead. Whether your... More
