What To Bring
Lake Michigan weather changes constantly and I would suggest dressing in layers that you can peel off as the day warms. Even if it is warm in the city the lake could be 5 to 10 degrees cooler. Must bring items include: Light jackets or hoodies, sunglasses with a lanyard, suntan lotion, swim suit, towel and camera. As for shoes, deck shoes or sneakers only please. No black sole shoes or shoes with any kind of heel. Any guests arriving with either will be asked to remove them. We also highly suggest packing motion sickness medicine for anyone who has not experienced being on a boat for long periods of time. One important note: Motion sickness medication works best when taken before leaving the dock.
-BYO food and beverages are allowed however, all food and beverages must be ready to eat, there is no food or drink preparation allowed on board.
-For your safety we limit the amount of glass on board Please utilize cans or plastic cups.
-No individual glass beverage bottles. Please use cans or covered beverage containers. (wine/champagne bottles are allowed).
-Please drink responsibly.
