On your charter with Sailing on Desire we will sail the south west Michigan coast out of Saugatuck / Douglas Michigan.
We begin our season mid May and sail in May, June, July, August and September.
Sailing on Desire is a great way to spend a few hours of summer fun. Join us with your family and friends on a morning, afternoon, or evening private cruise. It is perfect for vacation excursions, special events, birthdays, anniversary or engagement. Experience the beauty with loved ones.
When you come aboard, Captain Al and his crew untie the lines, and your Private Adventure begins.
We are located in south west Michigan in Douglas, MI and are an easy trip by car from Holland, Grand Haven, South Haven and the Grand Rapids area. See the map on the Contact Us page or call Captain Al at 616-204-2879.
The first part of your journey takes you into Kalamazoo Lake and through downtown Saugatuck. As you sit back and settle in we drift past the yachts at the docks, Coral Gables, and the historic Chain Ferry next to Wicks Park.
As the Trip continues the boat motors past the summer homes and cottages along the Kalamazoo River and into Lake Michigan.
Captain Al's crew will raise the main sail while making its way out the channel.
When you reach the pier heads, the Genoa sail is unfurled and the engine is turned off. Your sailing adventures continues as you are taken away by the winds and waves of Lake Michigan.
Sit back and relax and enjoy the sun. You can lounge on the deck or take the wheel and steer the boat. View the sparkling waters and the coastline views of the dunes along the West Michigan shorelines. Water, sun, wind, unbelievable scenery and being swept away by the waves will give you and your family and friends an experience you will not forget.
You can bring anything you would like to eat or drink. Desire provides paper products.
Sailing on Desire is a perfect way to spend time celebrating life.
