WHERE DOES THE TOUR START/END
All tours start and end at 219 N Union St, Douglas, MI (behind the little red replica lighthouse) on Kalamazoo Lake. We’re not your typical boat so we should be easy to find.

WHAT IS THE CANCELLATION POLICY?
Once the cycleboat is booked it is non-refundable. You have the flexibility of switching your tour to another time and day for a whole year! The tour is not refundable if WMCB determines we have to move locations due to the water status for the season. West Michigan Cycleboat takes this very seriously and will follow the recommendation of the US COAST GUARD.
WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS NOT PERMITTING?
We go out rain or shine! The cycleboat is covered if need be. If the captain determines the weather is not safe you can reschedule up to a year from your booking. No refunds will be given due to weather conditions. You can reschedule for a future date or the following year.
