If you are interested in reserving the Keewaydin Queen II, send us a request or contact our office at 231-268-8530 and let us help make your wishes come true.

It is important to show your employees that they are appreciated and we know that can be expensive. At Riverboat Tours we want to help you plan an inexpensive and effective corporate event that is low in cost and high in interaction and fun.

We have had the opportunity to share the joys of boating with a variety of  companies:

  • Team building
  • Planning meetings
  • Sales Meetings
  • Management meetings
  • Corporate Board meetings


We have helped many nervous men with their engagement surprises and have also had rambunctious groups of bachelorettes celebrating upcoming nuptials. Our most common group, though, is the rehearsal dinner on the boat or the bridal party before the “big day”. Special requests are honored all the time. No question is too out of the ordinary.

  • Engagement
  • Bachelor or Bachelorette party
  • Rehearsal celebration

Common bachelor or bachelorette party requests:

  • Catered Lunch on Board
  • Live Music
  • Swimming in Burt or Crooked Lake

We offer a unique, care free, and enjoyable experience for your bachelor or bachelorette party. We can help you customize any trip that fits your party’s tastes and energy level. Just let us know what you need and we can make it happen. Our weekends fill up quickly, so book early to ensure the entire wedding party will be able to participate. We will always do our best to ensure your experience is a memorable one.



Your birthday only comes once a year so why not spend it doing something you already love or have never tried before. Whether you’re celebrating your 30th birthday or your 50th birthday, the experience of a riverboat tour on the Inland Waterway is timeless and unforgettable. Let us take care of the party planning so you and your friends and family can let loose on your birthday.  Our parties are always BYOB, but we can assist with organizing any catering, or other food options, either before or after your trip. We also have information on accommodations for your guests and any entertainment you may need, as well. We love a good birthday party and we can’t wait to host yours.


A family reunion or family gathering is a great opportunity to catch up and make new memories with those you may not have seen in a while. However, we all know it can be tough to get everyone organized and plan something enjoyable. Let Riverboat Tours take care of the details and provide your family with a unique boating experience to create new memories that will last a lifetime for family members of all ages. We promise a safe and fun trip on the Inland Waterway of Northern Michigan. We can help you coordinate any details surrounding your event including food, entertainment, and nearby lodging. No request is too big or small and we’ll always do our best to accommodate your needs.


Have your next special youth group meeting on the Keewaydin Queen II. Your youth group can enjoy a beautiful day out on the river and discover the history of the area.
