Thoughts from the owners

Why We Started Great Lakes Boat Charters

It is true, Great Lakes Boat Charters serves our customers by providing a comfortable and safe boat, removing the requirement of boating experience, and providing destination and activity ideas (plus all the equipment)…all delivered at a fraction of the cost real boat ownership.

But that is not what we are about.

The idea and drive to start our company came from the many years of family members and friends sharing their time and their boats with our family. With the gift of time to reflect on our boating experience, we came to realize the many blessings in sharing time together on the water cruising, swimming, trying out new watersports, fishing and island hopping all summer long.

When you step onto the dock, the sky feels bluer, the sun brighter, the landscape greener. Once we untie the lines and leave the dock, let the “untethering” from the day to day life on land begin. 

Hope to see you on the water!
