I admire excellence and that's what this is. The captain knew the area as a master, knowing the history, stories, and characters. I cannot recommend this highly enough if you are looking for a lake tour of the area.

We spent a delightful couple of hours on the cruise. It was chilly, no just cold, but blankets were available. The captain and guides are local and know folklore and local stories. This is not a pre-recorded tour. We spotted a bald eagle on one of the island and stopped to see it up close. You could also move freely... More

Thanks to Captain Lynn Chuck and Carol for a relaxing and informative cruise on the waters of Green Bay. Was out for almost 2 hours learning about the maritime history of Door County. Had a great time.

My sister, mother and I took the 90-minute Coastline, Cliffs & Caves cruise. The captain modified the trip slightly to avoid areas where the water was a little choppy, for which I grateful, as we had a very smooth ride. The guide was friendly and humorous and knew much personal history of the area. The boat is a decommissioned Chicago... More

Went out with my husband and two teenage daughters, the water was a little too rough to go too far out into Lake Michigan but we had a good ride. We saw a bald eagle in the wild. We saw the wreck in seven feet of water right under us clear as day. Recommend going to the Maritime museum up... More

We took a morning trip, and just really enjoyed it. Our guide and captain were both excellent. They were both very knowledgeable about the area and would definitely go again.

We really enjoyed this 2 hours power boat ride. We skirted along the shoreline and the Captain and Chuck gave us a lot of history of Sister Bay and some of the other bays and islands. It was a really nice trip.

It was a two hour trip, beautiful scenery. We took jackets and camera's. It was in the 60's, so it was cold out on the water. Jeff was very informative about the area we were in. We were allowed to take food and drinks.

Our boat tour out of Fish Creek kept cancelling and we found this one instead. Lucky us! They had an older boat that had been used for the military (WW II) that cut through the waves rather smoothly. There was a captain (Lynn) and a 6th generation Door County resident who was the narrator, both excellent. Price was $39 for... More
