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.

My 7-year-old grandson and I were unable to take a kids cruise, so we signed up for a regular afternoon one. We had fun watching the sails go up (and down), and moving around the boat. It was especially neat to lie in the nets!

Amazing time on the cruise. The captain and all of the staff were great and welcoming. It is worth the ride and cannot wait to go back and take another!

The cruise and crew were fantastic! Beautiful sunset cruise and you have to try the catnip! We met folks from all over and quickly made friends and shared stories and plans for other trips in Michigan.

The crew on the boat was fun and very accommodating. There was plenty of seating, drinks, and great people in one of the most beautiful settings. It is a great time and would definitely do this again.

Everything was very nice. I would suggest some cushions..your back side starts to go numb sitting on a hard surface for 2-1/2 hours.

We went on the Nauti-Cat for the second time yesterday and loved it as much as the first time. Captain Chien is a great guy and fun to be with and the bartender was just as nice. It's a relaxing, beautiful trip around West Bay. If you've never been and have been wondering about it, trust me, it's fabulous!

This was an amazing sailing excursion with an a beautiful catamaran on a perfect day that was unfortunately spoiled by very, very loud music that the captain seemed to use to avoid talking to folks. The music was so loud that it interfered with casual conversation. Sad!

Her and I went for a noon cruise and loved it! The staff is very laid back and friendly. The ship is well-kept, with good bathroom facilities and comfortable nets for lounging. They even have a nice selection of drinks on the cruise. Highly recommended.

It was my husband and I first sailboat ride together and it was amazing. We were on our honeymoon and Capt Derrick announced it and we got amazing advice from the older couples. Can wait to go back up there and sail again
