We have been coming to South Haven for 10 years and never took a boat out. Today I booked the sunset cruise on the Elsie J it was awesome! It's a 1945 fishing boat that the owners dad fished off of until 1976. Booking the reservation was super easy I called in the am and we went out the same... More

We were a part of a group that had the advantage of the winning bid for a 2 hour cruise on the historic Elsie J in South Haven MI. Bob and Kathy were our hosts and provided our close group- 16 of us - (old and new friends) a wonderful time on Lake Michigan. Our group has had lots of... More

Kathy and Bob are so nice we thoroughly enjoyed our time on the boat. We called the day we wanted to charter and they said"Sure, we can go out this afternoon" Ride a boat, meet fun people, have fun. Highly recommended!

So glad we found this gem of a company!! When asking the kids what their favorite part of vacation was, they immediately said "driving the boat"! Bob and Kathy are the nicest people ever and are so great with kids! My husband and I loved the gorgeous views, serenity of the water and learning about the history of the Elsie... More

Called the day of the trip, last minute idea being our last day of vacationing in this lovely town for the first time. After researching other boat cruises, this is the ONLY one for children 4 and under. The maritime museum has a boat and that is the minimum age and one other has a cut off of 10 years... More

Hopped on board the Elsie J for a 6pm cruise, and am so glad we did! What a fantastic time we all had. The 2-year-old and 2 5-year-olds were completely entranced the entire time - they got a chance to sound the horn, steer the boat, don some pirate garb, and left with some fabulous toy swords to remember their...

These guys were one of the hight points of the trip. The cruise was led by Bob Jensen and his wife, and they were a blast. My wife and I went on a Wednesday, so we were the only couple on the cruise. We loved getting to learn about South Haven from them, though if we would had wanted time... More

We went on the 2:00 cruise and had a delightful time. The cost was $35 per person, which was one of the better rates we found in the area. The boat has a very cool history and is comfortable. There is an area to sit with an overhang for shade or you can go up on the top deck for... More

My family, consisting of an 8 year old, a 28 year old young man with a cognitive disability, my husband and myself, planned to go on a Pirate adventure with Captain Bob aboard the Elsie J, but the big lake wasn't prepared for that (very rough waters). Rather than just cancelling, Captain Bob asked us to join his Sunset Cruise.... More
