Lansing Metro Marinas's Giselle and Ken Settimo had a vision for a new way to see Lansing—from the waterways. The couple purchased a 28-foot pontoon boat, staffed it with a captain and deck hand, and set about their mission to show Michiganders the beauty of their city. Today, the boat cruises down the Grand River from Old Town to Moore's River Park, Red Cedar to Potter Park Zoo, offering stunning views of downtown Lansing. Charters, evening cruises, and private events float down the waterway, enjoying access to seating, party lighting, and a fridge to re-energize glow-stick swords.
