For many, life along the Mississippi is idyllic. Fishing, bird watching, and leisurely boat rides are a favorite pastime for vacationers and locals alike – but for those without their own boats, the river can seem inaccessible. Captain Dennis Hartig and his wife, Susan, of Guttenberg, have decided to channel their river experiences into a business that makes those very experiences available to all.
