Michigan Maritime Museum 2nd Annual Boat Walk

The Michigan Maritime Museum invites you to the 2nd Annual Boat Walk fundraiser! This event takes place Saturday, August 15th from noon to 4pm. Like a Home Tour, you get the chance to tour 12-15 privately owned vessels above and below decks. While walking between each of these beautiful boats ranging from powerboats to sailboats in the picturesque South Haven harbor, explore the Harbor Walk–markers that are placed along the Black River detailing some of South Haven’s fascinating maritime history–in the heart of the Maritime District. Be prepared to remove your shoes as you climb aboard each vessel and greet the captain with your ticket. Participation in the Boat Walk is restricted to those ages 13 and up. Walkers should check in at the Museum first, and pick up their official Boat Walk program and map. Once finished with your walk, all ticket holders are invited to come back to the Michigan Maritime Museum campus to enjoy some light refreshments.

Tickets are $15 per person and are available in the Michigan Maritime Museum Ship Store, the Visitors’ Bureau, the Chamber of Commerce, or online at: www.michiganmaritimemuseum.org/store/
All proceeds will benefit the Michigan Maritime Museum fundraising effort.

The Michigan Maritime Museum is dedicated to the preservation of Michigan Great Lakes waterways, maritime history, and culture. Located at the drawbridge in South Haven, the museum is a 501 (C3) organization and donations are tax deductible. For more information call 1-800-747-3810 or visit michiganmaritimemuseum.org.
