houseboat "Song of the Chattahoochee" tied to dock

The 55-foot “Song of the Chattahoochee”

Three houseboat cruises this summer will raise funds for Annandale Village of Suwanee. Organized by Tom Stepnowski, owner of Lanier Boat Charter; and community volunteer Todd Sorenson, they will take place monthly – June 17, July 22 and August 19.

The “Taste of Brew” cruises will feature 3-hour sunset cruises and tastings of beers created by Monkey Wrench Brewery in Suwanee.

“We wanted to help out this worthy organization that serves adults with developmental challenges and traumatic brain injuries while providing a recreational event for people around the lake,” said Stepnowski. “Now that COVID-19 is getting under control, this seems like the perfect opportunity to bring people together for a good cause.”

Stepnowski is providing a houseboat in his fleet, his 55-foot Song of the Chattahoochee, and the brewery will host tastings of select beers.

“Munchies from Pig Tales is included in the $75 per person price,” said Sorenson, who is retired from a career in high tech sales and marketing. “And we’re limiting each cruise to 32 people to ensure social distancing.”

The cruises will depart from Aqualand Safe Harbor Marina’s courtesy dock.

Reservations may be made via or by calling Sorenson at 770-335-2422.
