Why Kayak? Kayaking Saugatuck & Holland Michigan.

Kalamazoo River is a great place to get on the water. It connects to Lake Michigan and is located in Saugatuck & Douglas, Michigan. One of the best ways and most affordable ways to get out and view Saugatuck, Douglas and Lake Michigan is in a kayak.

Some folks have asked us. Why Kayak? I’ve never tried it! Is kayaking fun?

Kayaking is a great way to explore the waters and certainly a peaceful way to enjoy Lake Macatawa and Lake Michigan. Here are a few reasons why:

Single Kayaking, Tandem Kayaking or Group Kayaking

Whether you are looking for some peaceful alone time or to share an experience with friends or family, kayaking is a great way to go. If you’re looking to work as a team or to pair up a variety of kayak experience levels, you can always go with a tandem kayak. Because of the variety of kayaks available there is almost always a way to enjoy a kayak trip no matter who you’re with.

Quiet & Peaceful

You can truly absorb your surroundings and your company when you’re gliding across the water in a kayak. Like other boating opportunities, there’s still plenty of room to bring along your favorite beverages or snacks while you share a great conversation with the company you keep. You can also simply choose to breathe and listen to good old mother nature without the noise of a boat engine.


With a kayak, you can get to and go to places you can’t always go with a boat. Get away from the lake traffic by going into shallow waters, streams or you can even easily pop your kayak across a short strip of sand to a pool of water if the occasion arises.

Exercise and Physical Activity

One of the best features of kayaking is it gets you moving while you enjoy the world around you. Kayaking will work your core muscles and your arms and heart. It’s an excellent way to relieve stress. The peace around you mixed with a bit of activity does wonders for the mind and body. Kayaking is a great way to enjoy exercising without feeling like you’re exercising!

Kayaking is great for all ages and skills.

Kayaks are built for all ages and skill levels. With a little boating knowledge, awareness and safety practices, anyone of almost any age or skill level can enjoy a good kayak trip.
