Discover Solar Boating in South Haven with Lilypad

South Haven, Michigan, is a picturesque lakeside town known for its maritime history, beautiful beaches, charming downtown, and stunning sunsets. It offers an idyllic setting for boating enthusiasts looking to experience both relaxation and adventure in southwest Michigan. At Lilypad, we are dedicated to providing you with the ultimate boating experience, ensuring that your time on the water is both enjoyable and memorable with your South Haven boat rental.


Lilypad solar boats are specifically designed as a “social first” and “café table on water” experience. Fresh water and nature serve as a backdrop for our social interactions. Plus, our sustainable boats travel at a slow speed and are silent in operation, as Lilypad prioritizes conversations and quality time with others.


Whether you're planning a family outing, a romantic escape, or a solo adventure, our affordable 2-hour solar boat rentals in South Haven with our partners at Gull Lake Marine ensure that you can enjoy the water of the Black River.

We invite you to experience Pure Michigan and the charm of South Haven on the Black River aboard a Lilypad solar boat. Silently pass through the harbor of South Haven and view one of Michigan’s most vibrant resorts and historical maritime centers from the tranquility of a Lilypad. As you continue your journey eastward, you will quickly become enveloped in the ambiance of the Black River and its quiet natural setting.


Your Michigan solar boat rental is available via our partners from Gull Lake Marine. Enjoy your Lilypad solar boat experience on the Black River in South Haven, by easily making your reservation via phone or online.

Enjoy Diverse Water Activities and Stunning Scenery

South Haven is renowned for its diverse water activities and breathtaking scenery. The town's vibrant harbor is also home to a variety of shops, restaurants, and attractions, providing plenty of opportunities for exploration and enjoyment both on and off the water.

Support Sustainability and Michigan’s Fresh Water

When you choose Lilypad for your boating adventure, you're not just renting a boat; you're supporting Michigan’s freshwater ecosystem. Ensuring the long-term health and productivity of our freshwater ecosystem is very important to us at Lilypad.


Therefore, Lilypad is solar powered and 100% carbon-free in operation. Our sustainable solar boats do not require gasoline or oil and will never leak a drop of toxins into a body of water that we operate upon. Additionally, our Lilypad hulls are entirely aluminum and recyclable at end of life.


We are focused on the Great Lakes water communities and require no capital expenditures or special modifications to a dock. As a matter of fact, every dock is a potential location as we are 100% powered by the sun—no plug-ins required!


We are proudly focused on local sourcing and building the Michigan-based Blue Economy. Most of our suppliers and wherever practical are Michigan based. We feel that this is a circuitous loop as the skills and talent are here in-state, and hopefully our business will, in a small way, help them grow. 


Plus, by choosing Lilypad, you're helping to ensure that Michigan’s fresh waters remain vibrant and healthy for future generations to enjoy.
