The Idler in South Haven
Although we have been to South Haven many times, this was our first experience on the Idler and we loved it. The boat is permanently docked on the Black River and offers charm, pleasant service, an incredible view and a variety of food choices. The ship was built in 1897 and used to pushed or pulled by a tug up and down the Mississippi back in the day. It was owned by Vincent Price's father for more than 50 years. Moored in South Haven since 1979, the Idler is well known for their drink called South Haven Iced Tea (the use the 4 initials for a nickname) and patrons are never allowed more than 2.
