School Cruises, Groups, and Private Charters
Thank you for considering The Grand Lady Riverboat for your event. The Grand Lady is the perfect venue for a unique experience in a beautiful, outdoor setting. Our Riverboat has a capacity of 130 passengers, two decks protected from weather, with beverage service, and a sound system for live music. Please review the information and links below, and then email us at email@example.com with your questions and as many event details as possible.
School Cruises: Contact our partner, Ottawa County Parks/Nature Center, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 616-786-4847 to arrange field trips and educational outings.
Groups of less than 20: For small groups, we recommend that you purchase seats on public Sightseeing Cruise or Live Music Cruise. Go to the Calendar to view upcoming cruises, get details, and purchase seats. We are not able to accommodate a bar tab or drink tickets on Live Music Cruises. If you wish to do so on a Sightseeing Cruise, arrangements must be made in advance of the event.
Groups of 20 or more on a public cruise: For a group reservation of 20 or more, we will open a new date on our public cruise calendar at a time that works for your group, or you may purchase seats on an already-scheduled cruise. Seating is on a first come basis and open to the public. The remaining seats not sold to your group will be available for sale on The Grand Lady website. The cruises are two hours in length and follow the same format and pricing as our Sightseeing Cruises. We are not able to accommodate a bar tab or drink tickets on Live Music Cruises. If you wish to do so on a Sightseeing Cruise, arrangements must be made in advance of the event.
Group reservations to open a new date must be made at least four weeks prior to the cruise date. We will add a new public cruise to our calendar, and you will then purchase at least the first 20 seats to secure the date. You may purchase more seats for your group as needed. Please keep in mind that all sales are final. For group questions and to request a date, email us at email@example.com.
Private Charters: Family gatherings, corporate and team outings, and other special events (entire boat up to 130 passengers)
