Get your LMYA Cruising Card!

Because of the LMYA’s relationship with clubs and boaters it can exclusively offer the CRUISING CARD™.  Issued annually only to LIFE and SUSTAINING members, this includes offers of FREE dockage, discounts and FREE merchandise.  NO other organization has as large a program on Lake Michigan and it is included FREE with your SUSTAINING or LIFE membership dues.  If every offer was used a boater could potentially save over $600 based on using a 30 foot boat. Each year, coupons for each of the offers listed from our sponsors will be mailed to our dues paying members. Click the button below for full information about the offers available.
