The story of


The boat formerly known as The Port City Princess was recently purchased by Sand Products Corporation to keep the historic cruise ship in Muskegon. It was renamed and given a little face-lift to start off. Now known as the “Aquastar”, she stands out with a rich blue 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.  Check out the calendar for the most accurate cruise schedule.

There are more renovations in the works, with the main goal to pay homage to Muskegon’s rich maritime history back to the 1930s. Taking inspiration from the  SS AQUARAMA, and SS MILWAUKEE CLIPPER. The ship bring a sense of nostalgia and a historical intrigue.

The Aquastar is a Coast Guard inspected vessel.
