Test the Waters
Experience the scenic Kalamazoo River and the expansive, fresh waters of breathtaking Lake Michigan on Schooner Serenity, Saugatuck’s only authentic Tall Ship. Or consider taking a ride on the Star of Saugatuck, a 51-ton doubledecker paddlewheel boat which traverses the Kalamazoo River into Lake Michigan, giving you a leisurely view of the town, harbor, and scenic natural areas.
For those looking for a more active way to take in the water, consider a HydroBike adventure down the Kalamazoo River through the picturesque and peaceful Allegan Forest where you can encounter bald eagles and river otters. Families or groups may want to consider renting a Donut Boat, a fun and dog-friendly way to explore the harbor on your own. Or take the party to the water with a West Michigan Cycleboat where groups of up to 12 people provide pedal power and enjoy beverages while a staff member steers them along the Kalamazoo River. Finally, embrace a bygone era by renting a classic runabout Retro Boat from the late 50s and early 60s for a more nostalgic method of exploring Saugatuck’s waterways.
