About Us

The boat formerly known as The Port City Princess has been cruising Muskegon shores since 1987. The previous owners were ready to exit the business and made arrangements for the boat to move to a Northern Michigan port. To keep the boat in Muskegon, Sand Products purchased the boat and extensively upgraded with aesthetic and structural renovations featuring a modern deco theme.

Now known as the “Aquastar”, she stands out with a color scheme inspired by the SS AQUARAMA, the largest passenger ferry ever on the Great Lakes. The Aquastar continues to cruise Muskegon Lake and Lake Michigan allowing her passengers to enjoy getting out on our special lakes. We offer both private charters and public cruises. Throughout the sailing season, we offer a wide variety of specialty cruises.

Taking inspiration from the SS AQUARAMA, and SS MILWAUKEE CLIPPER, the ship brings a sense of nostalgia and historical intrigue. Check out the calendar for the most up to date cruise schedule. There are more renovations in the works, with the main goal to pay homage to Muskegon’s rich maritime history.

The Aquastar is a 61’ Coast Guard inspected vessel featuring two decks, onboard restrooms, a full-service bar, a dance floor and a state-of-the-art sound system. 

All Aquastar captains are Coast Guard certified for 100-ton vessels.
