Public Cruises

Party of Two?

Not enough people to book a private cruise? Perhaps you are just looking to take someone special out for an evening? Our public sunset cruises can accommodate parties of any size, from a single guest, to 80. All you need is a reservation made one week in advance.* The Par-Te-Tyme departs every evening at 8:00pm for a 1 & 1/2 hour sunset cruise along the St. Joseph River, and into Lake Michigan (weather permitting).

Everyone celebrates special occasions with a dinner. Why not impress the one you love with a little more. Start with the dinner, add scenic riverbanks, a sunset and a warm summer Lake Michigan breeze, and you’ll be a hit!

Have some out of town visitors? Bring them down for a special treat they won’t forget. The natural beauty of Michigan’s lakefront is one of the area’s best attractions.

Public cruises last approximately 1 and 1/2 hours and will depart from the dock at the departure time or when the equivalent of 10 paying adults is reached, whichever is later.

The captain makes all weather decisions with your safety in mind, and reserves the right to cancel a public cruise due to weather or for any other reason at any time.
