Virtual Gift Cards: Give an Awesome Experience on the Water!

Choose the location for your virtual gift card to get started:



How to Purchase
  • Choose one of our three rental sites for your gift card – Paw Paw River in St. Joseph/Benton Harbor, Galien River in New Buffalo, or Silver Beach in St. Joseph. (If your recipient would like to use at a different location than the one you selected, it’s no problem for us to transfer it!)
  • You have two options for giving the virtual gift card to your friend or family member:
    • Get the virtual gift card emailed to youso that you can give it to your recipient.
    • Get the virtual gift card emailed directly to your recipient when you make your purchase. (You’ll need to provide the recipient’s email address and, if you’d like, a personalized message.)
  • You will be asked for your preferred gift card amount. Not sure how much to put on the gift card? Check out this breakdown of our rental fees below. (We recommend giving enough to cover at least two hours on the water, but it’s up to you!)

How to Redeem
  • Your gift card must be redeemed for the location selected by the buyer. Click your site here to book – Paw Paw River, Galien River, or Silver Beach. If you want to redeem at a different location, email us at, and we’ll transfer it for you.
