Ahh! Venture Cruise is located on the east end of Lake Macatawa in Holland, MI.
We depart from:
ME Yacht Restoration
471 Howard Avenue
Holland, MI 49424
The captain will meet you at the flagpole.
Please arrive 15-20 minutes before departure time. This allows for time to board the vessel and to go over safety policies.
We suggest you bring:
Hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, camera, cover ups for sun (warmth in evening), suit and towels if swimming, beverages beyond water. Please wear light colored soft sole shoes and please do not wear bling on your clothing, as it can put holes in the vinyl seating! :)
Yes indeed! You are welcome to bring along your favorite non-red wine and other adult beverage. We request you please drink responsibly. Behavior putting vessel, passengers, or yourself in danger will result in removal from the vessel without a refund. Thank you for your understanding!
Absolutely! Providing complimentary food and water is what makes us a unique and exclusive cruising business. We enjoy using many of Holland's family owned businesses for food, drink, and candy options. Upon request, we provide bake goods from local restaurant or bakery for morning cruises and fruit or veggie tray for afternoon/evening cruises. We supply complimentary cookies, licorice and always have Boxed Water! Feel free to text for special requests! 269-303-5703
Of course! We have options with three local restaurants on and near the shores of Lake Macatawa. DeBoer's Bakery and Restaurant will provide take out breakfast, lunch, and all bakery items. Boatwerks Waterfront Restaurant allows take out from their lunch and dinner menu. Paisley Pig-Holland allows take out from their dinner menu. We are happy to work out arrangements for a sit down meal at all of these locations, but this will need to be discussed ahead of your cruising day.
Absolutely! There are so many options. You may pick up food from local restaurants, on your way to the boat. You can bring your own food, get take-out from the boat, or we can supply snacks and drinks. We have refrigeration, coolers, grill, air fryer and blenders. We will need to know ahead of time what is needed and how much space is needed. If you choose to bring your own food, please refrain from food that could cause stain damage to the boat: Cheetos, Doritos, Red Dye Food and Drink.
Three Local Restaurants for Take Out by You:
DeBoers Bakery Northside
Three Local Restaurants for Take Out From Boat:

Yes indeed! We love the kiddos, but they all count toward 6 total passengers. Children 6 and under are required to wear life jackets at all times. We have those available for ages 2-adult. Please let us know if you have need of a coast guard approved infant life vest.
Weather permitting, you may swim in the lake at your own risk. Guests have also enjoyed getting off the boat on the shores of Lake Michigan and walking the beach or climbing the dunes. All of this is allowed as long as the waves and weather conditions permit and the Captain gives the big "thumbs up" of approval!
Yes indeed! Our insurance company is quite fond of waivers! :) Every passenger will need to sign a waiver and parents will need to sign for their under age children. Waivers are included during the booking process and will be provided at time of arrival for those who do not bring a downloaded, signed copy from the booking site.
Parking is available, but carpooling is helpful if you are able to do that with family and friends.
Payments are fully refundable for customer cancellations up to 3 days before your departure date. Cancellations within the three days before your cruise may be rescheduled but are not refundable. If the captain should cancel the cruise for any reason, you will be offered a credit or a full refund.
Well, that would truly be a bummer, but not to worry. Weather and marine apps are monitored very closely. In the event the cruise needs to be cancelled, as determined by Captain Cal, you will be given the option to reschedule or receive a full refund.
