Comfy sofas, a full kitchen area, an ample back deck: the amenities of the 1984 Chris-Craft Commander sound like those in a spacious home. But the Commander is actually the 33-foot boat that U.S. Coast Guard-certified Captain Matt pilots on relaxing journeys along the Lake Michigan shoreline.
Setting sail from Algoma City Marina at 6 p.m., Captain Matt whisks away upward of six passengers on leisurely 45-minute cruises to Kewaunee. Once there, his guests have 90 minutes to enjoy an indoor or outdoor feast at Port O'Call, whose menu options range from shrimp scampi to chicken wraps with parmesan peppercorn dressing. Afterward, Matt returns passengers to Algoma by 9 p.m. or their fairy godmother-enforced curfew. He invites his guests to bring their own beverages for the journey, and offers picturesque seating on his back deck or the boat's fly bridge.
The crunch of fallen leaves or packed snow telegraphs the motions of warriors hidden in the underbrush on the outdoor fields at Commando Paintball Sports. Paintballs whisper through the air, flitting out from the barrels of Tippmann FT-12 or Piranha markers. The projectiles splatter against two-story forts or hollowed-out vehicles on the three wooded fields, which stay open year-round in almost any weather. On the urban combat field, patrons take cover in any of 20 buildings, including a three-story bell tower perfect for getting a birds-eye-view of opponents. Those seeking tournament-style play compete in a hyperball field designed by expert players. Laser tag keeps clothing clean while still eliciting floods of adrenaline.
