Experience The Gem-Like Shores of Door Bluff County Park
Our Door Bluff tour is one the best tours we offer; picturesque, quaint, and off the beaten path. This tour provides a rich history of Door Bluff as well as the mesmerizing natural beauty of the water and bluffs.
First, guests will visit the historic Schooner Fleetwing shipwreck. Then cruise over to marvel at the hidden Native American rock art tucked away on the side of the bluffs. No experience is necessary to get the full experience and enjoy this paddle.
While paddling, guests sit front and center to beautiful scenery such as Washington Island, Gills Rock, and the infamous Port des Morts (Death’s Door). Tours will paddle around the bend and view the Door Bluff Headlands lookout from the water.
This tour is perfect for the history buff, the nature enthusiast, or the adventurous spirit. This two hour tour just scratches the surface of the deep-rooted history and beauty of Door Bluff. For a more in depth tour check out Door Bluff County Park Shipwreck 1/2 Day Kayak Tour!
