Door County has a rich nautical history. The Door County Peninsula and Islands were settled from the north to the south by settlers arriving via the water on sailing schooners and steamers.
Join us on one of our scenic cruises and see the Door County Peninsula and Great Lakes Lighthouses as they should be seen, from the water. Our knowledgeable Captains and crew will show you cliffs, caves, lighthouses, shipwreck locations, waterfront estates and share local history and nautical folklore.
We have three boats departing from either Sister Bay, Gills Rock, or Washington Island. Choose from either one of our daily tours or charter a boat privately and create your own adventure. We know these waters, we love these waters and hope to see you aboard. Reservations Recommended.
This former water taxi that transported up to 42 passengers on the Chicago River and lakefront we now use for lighthouse tours to Eagle Bluff Lighthouse, sunsets and scenic coastline cruises both north and south of the Sister Bay area.
The US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Friends of Plum and Pilot Island announced there will be two open dates for the public to hike and tour Plum Island to see the historic Coast Guard Station and lighthouses there.
