Get on the Water

From the winding Kalamazoo River to the harbor and big lake, there are so many opportunities to enjoy the water in the Saugatuck-Douglas area. Whether you 
take in our waterways from atop a double-decker paddleboat, charter a sailing or 
fishing excursion, or explore them under 
your own power in a kayak or canoe, you’ll 
find any encounter with our unsalted 
waves an enthralling experience.
