On the shores of Lake Michigan, Grand Haven is a fantastic place to rent a boat and spend hours cruising around in the summertime. Rent a cruising pontoon with your family or a ski boat for watersports like tubing and wakesurfing. Boat rentals and water experiences like kayaking, jet skiing, fishing, and sailing are popular activities to enjoy here, and no summer trip to Michigan is complete without enjoying outdoor activities.
The Grand River flows inland from Lake Michigan, surrounding Grand Haven. The riverfront is great for a boat tour around the town, seeing iconic spots like Grand Haven State Park, Escanaba Park, and the Grand Haven Musical Fountain. Pull your boat into the docks at a waterfront restaurant or check out a beach and go for a swim.
Fishing is a top tourist activity in Grand Haven. Sportfishing charters will take you out to fish the depths of Lake Michigan, catching fish like King Salmon, Coho Salmon, Steelhead, Brown Trout, and Lake Trout. Trophy fishing opportunities are plentiful in Grand Haven, and you can enjoy trolling with a professional guide and captain on a fishing charter, or rent a fishing boat on your own.

The weather was perfect so he was able to take us straight out to Lake Michigan but Lake Muskeegon is plenty big to sail also. The boat is well maintained and he has a wonderful Bimini on the boat to keep the sun and wind off of you, when it's needed.
Had a great day-long sail, went for a swim, and finished with an amazing sunset. Then we spent the night aboard and the next morning working from the marina. The slip location is right next to the club house, and the marina is very clean and quiet, so we had an easy time working on Wifi at the dock. Jim is super friendly and laid-back. Thanks for a great experience!
This was the perfect adventure! I surprised my husband with a sunset sail for his birthday and Captain Jim was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Truly, a 5+ star review. We received a warm welcome as soon as we arrived and Captain Jim's hospitality, extensive knowledge, and 20+ years of experience continued from there. My husband and I were able to venture out on the bow to relax and take in the views. We also had great conversation with Captain Jim, who truly is incredibly kind and the best kind of company. We'll definitely book with Captain Jim again. Highly recommended!
Awesome boat, great captain - communication was perfect and the boat ride was so zen and beautiful can't wait to go again!
Wonderful day on the water. Jim is an excellent host and an excellent sailor.
Nice sail. Jim is great!
