SCENIC CRUISES & CHARTERS

The Door County Peninsula is surrounded by water and beautiful scenery including lighthouses, islands and even shipwrecks from the 1800’s you can see. We offer several ways to not only see these sights but learn more about them. Our boat tours depart from two different locations using seaworthy U.S. Navy boats. Both locations (Baileys Harbor or Gills Rock) offer daily cruises open to individuals or private charters where the whole boat can be yours for family or group. Several routes are offered on our daily cruises to see the sights or on a private charter you can create your own route. Check out the options each location offers.

We don’t just do a quick drive by to these sites. We get you to these locations and go slowly and/or even stop the boat so you can get the photographs and memories youwant. If you see something you want to photograph let us know and our Captain will slow down or turn the boat for that memorable shot. We understand this may be your one and only opportunity to ever do this and we want to accommodate your needs. That is why we say “Personalized Cruises”. You are not just one of dozens or ahundred of passengers, on our smaller boats this cruise is yours. 

Our licensed Master Captains not only have years of experience but love these waters and want to share their experiences with you. They have been on many of the Great Lakes and even crossed these Inland Seas. Our crew members who offer information and narration on the sights are all local people who know the sights and history. Aside from all the beautiful scenery and sights we show you both locations go by the sight of several historical shipwrecks that sank in the 1800’s. Our Captains will position the boat right over some of the shipwrecks for you to see! Some of our Captains and crew are divers who not only dive these wrecks, they have discovered some. We have more knowledge and experience on shipwrecks than anyone in the County and have given shipwreck presentations both locally and Statewide.

Our Navy boats are licensed Coast Guard passenger vessels equipped with all the proper safety and navigational systems required however there are days when weather can cancel a trip. We make reserving a seat as easy as possible and no hassle for you as we do not charge any reservation fees or even take a deposit. That way if the weather cancels a trip or the weather conditions that day are not to your liking you can cancel and you do not lose any money or fees as no money has been collected. We do not use any out of State reservation companies, we handle all reservations and work with you on an individual basis.
