Island Dinner
Voice: John Babiarz, Bay City
Excerpted from Bay City Times, July 2005


What are we going to do for dinner” How many times a week do you have this debate? We, we found the Answer-Charity Island Dinner Cruise. What a great way to spend an evening! We were lucky enough to try this unique dining experience recently during its inaugural season.

If you’ve spent any time on Saginaw Bay wondering what was on the Charity Islands (like I have) or even if you’ve spent time on the island in the past(like several of our fellow dinners had) you’ll enjoy this cruise.

After reading about the dinner cruise in The Bay City Times on June 27, we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. The food and the atmosphere was exceptional. The only thing than either of these was the hospitality of owners/hosts Bob and Karen Wiltse. They were obviously proud of the opportunity they had created as they followed through on their “make yourself at home” offer with a tour of their new home and a friendly meal on the home’s wrap-around porch.

Don’t let the summer slip away without trying this enjoyable dining experience. Take the Charity Island Dinner Cruise. You’ll be happy that you did. And Bob and Karen will be happy to have you.

My husband and I were on your dinner cruise Saturday, August 13th to celebrate our anniversary and we really enjoyed the experience. I wanted to take a moment and thank you for your hospitality. For us, it was the personal touch of our hosts that made the trip so unique. We plan to visit you again next summer with a large group of our friends. They are all looking forward to having as much fun as we did. Again, thank you.
