We did the Mink River tour out of Rowley's Bay. Stephen was a great guide! Excellent instruction and informative tour. We loved it. Recommend you check the weather before heading out - a quick change in weather meant some pretty hard work for us 55+ rowers on the way back in. Highly recommend these tours!

Our family of 4 went kayaking to the cave with Evan. He was great with my 17 and 18 year old boys who managed to tip their kayak over 3 times! We also did zip line at dc center. Climbing the ladder to top scared me to death. My kids loved it.

My family were first time Kayak-ers, which included an 11 and 13 year-old. We did the Mink River tour and it was perfect for us first timers. We really enjoyed the experience and our guide was great. We also did the Zip Line package there at Rowley's Bay. It was a little disappointing since it was on the small side.... More

Egg Harbor crew (Schiends, Courtney, and Abbey) were so patient and supportive in getting this 71-year-old lady up on a paddleboard! Schiends went way out in the water with me for support. I recommend them for any beginners. A beautiful harbor for kayaking and paddleboarding besides a nice little beach. A highlight of our Door County trip!

The bay was the perfect place to rent some paddle boards and a few kayaks to let my teens get out and play. We have some small kids in the group that preferred to say on the beach. This location has a pavilion to eat our lunch and get some cover in the sun. They also have bathrooms. We brought... More

We stopped at the Egg Harbor Beach Location and were told we could do the sunset kayak tour from right there. I thought that was great because we were staying down the street with my entire family, but this was something just my son and I wanted to do. When I called to reserve our spots, I was told it...

We really grew closer as a company and coworkers thanks to our great facilitator Tim! I think everyone really learned a lot about each other and what we need to do to improve. Definitely worth a trip back to explore those areas further!

Spur of the moment trip to Door County. Daughter wanted to zip line for her 18th birthday. This was a great place, since three of the four in our group had never zip lined before. Our guides were fantastic! Would come back in a heartbeat!
