We are honored to bring the Riversong Tour Boat to Houghton
Lake to showcase this goergeous water system.  Houghton Lake
Michigan has the unique position to be convienently located
right in the middle of the state.  It is a major tourist destination
with many things to do.  We are now adding our tour boat to the
list of things to do on your vacation to Houghton Lake.

Our tour boat will take you on a relaxing 1 - 1.5 hour long cruise
along the beautiful shores of Houghton Lake.  We will be playing
some relaxing music along the way and discussing some
historical facts.  Offering day, evening and sunset cruises.

About Houghton Lake.  The entire lake is 7.5 miles north to south
and 4.5 miles wide.  It is the largest inland lake in Michigan.
Although large in size the lake is relatively shallow with the
deepest spot at 21' and an average depth of 9'.  Lumbering was
a major factor in the early days of Houghton Lake as logs were
floated to the Muskegon River from the lake.

An interesting note** about Houghton Lake are the many
"sandholes" around the lake.  There are 51 holes from 8-18'
deep and up to 1600' wide (generally about 500' wide).  There
usually is a steep drop off from about 4' deep to up to 20' deep.
It is estimated that more than 20 people have drowned from
these "sandholes".  They were made from sandsucker machines
in the 1940's that sucked the sand from the lake and transported
it to aid in shoreline development.
*We are also offering Day Charters for your group*

Corporate Groups, Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties, Family
Reunions, Weddings, Party Boat etc.
 Hire the Boat for 2-4 hour
excursions for your group only.  

We also do Canoe / Kayak / Tube Trips down the beautiful Cedar
River in Gladwin, Michigan (1/2 hr south of Houghton Lake).

So if your looking for some relaxing and enjoyable times "on the
lake" with stereo music in an all enclosed (all windows are
opening type) historical tour boat - then "Welcome Aboard"
