Take it to the water
The lighthouses on the Grand Haven South Pier mark the entry into the Grand River, where the adventure is just beginning for the boater and fisherman. The Grand Haven area offers dozens of boating and fishing options along the worldclass waters of Lake Michigan and Spring Lake, or an ambitious kayak or canoe trip down the Grand River, the state’s longest river.
Distinguished as the most chartered port on Lake Michigan, professional charter services provide shipwreck dives, scenic excursions, cruises and tours, as well as opportunities for hooking a trophy salmon. Coho and chinook salmon, steelhead, lake trout, bass, blue gill, perch and walleye abound in area waters, drawing anglers from near and far. Many anglers get lucky casting lines from the pier at Grand Haven State Park and numerous other public fishing sites. Whatever your preference, waterway access is made easy with public boat launches and marinas located throughout the region.
