I was interested in trying paddle boarding for the first time. The person who was on duty was very friendly and very helpful in giving me a quick lesson on how to paddle board successfully. I enjoyed my experience with Macatawa Boat house.

5 kids (age 9-13) and 5 adults spanning 3 generations! Tom and his crew did an awesome job getting us started and within minutes we were all on the water and paddle boarding! Most of us were first-timers and we all had a blast!

My niece and I rented a tandem kayak for an hour and went to the canal and back. It was the perfect amount of time considering the waters were a little rough. Friendly and helpful staff and convenient location. Great experience overall.

It was really easy and cheap to rent a couple kayaks from them. It's hard kayaking out of the channel and into the Lake but it is SO worth it!

My husband and I rented a double kayak. $15 for an hour. Sweet! Our friend rented a single sit in kayak. $10 for an hour. Yay! They gave us a couple tips depending on wind direction and just let us go. Pretty cool set up!
