Captain’s Club

Many say Mug Club, but we say Captain’s Club because we believe a lake needs a vessel, a vessel requires a Captain, and a Captain deserves a good beer.  So, for those men and women (21 and up) out there who have what it takes to be a Captain, join our Captain’s Club and sail Flathead Lake with us. Although everyone deserves to be a Captain, we have limited vessels in our fleet so reserve your ship today.

Full for 2018
