Kayak Tour To Peninsula State Park In Wisconsin

Wisconsin’s Door County is a very large peninsula jutting out from the mainland.  It is surrounded by Green Bay waters on one side and Lake Michigan on the other.

Peninsula State Park is beautiful with lush greenery and dramatic towering cliffs.  It has eight miles of Door County shoreline.


Take a half-day guided kayak tour and paddle along the shores of Peninsula State Park.  You’ll meet with your guide and get a safety briefing and a paddle lesson.

Your guide will lead the way which lets your focus on the sights and not on navigation.  There will be a professional photographer to take photos during the tour.

Paddle your way to the Eagle Bluffs and see the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse.  Built in 1868 and restored in 1960, it still guides boats through the narrow Strawberry Channel.

Marvel at the limestone cliffs that tower over the water.  Gulls, terns and other waterfowl dot the sky.  Enjoy the beauty of the shoreline and the quiet pleasure of being on the water.  Your guide will point out the landmarks, explain what you’re seeing and tell you stories of the area.

Paddle on to Horseshoe Island which is named for its distinctive shape.  This rocky island is accessible only by boat or kayak.

Then it’s on to Chambers Island.  You’ll see sandy beaches, dunes and a sometimes rocky shoreline.  The island’s octagon lighthouse is over 150 years old.  It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.  It is said to have a ghost in residence.

See beautiful sights, learn about the area, get a great workout, and have a lot of fun on this great four-hour tour.  This will be a morning you’ll long remember.
