Loved sailing on the bay!

Scuppers was a beautiful little boat for our trip and Captain Tom made it very interesting. Even little Lucky (his dog) was having a wonderful time!

We had the pleasure of sailing with Tom, Ben & Lucky the Sunday after the 4th of July. We couldn't have picked a better evening. Tom's sailboat accommodates six passengers (we were 4) for a very intimate sailing experience. Tom's knowledge of the area is excellent and adds to a wonderful evening culminating in a very nice sunset. We've been... More

Experience the breathtaking beauty of historic Ephraim and panoramic Peninsula State Park from the water! "Scuppers," a 26 foot classic sailboat with wood masts and red sails makes four trips daily including sunsets. Local history and tales will add to your enjoyment. All USCG approved lifesaving equipment on board. Capt. Tom is an expert on the history of the Area

We had a wonderful sunset cruise with Tom, Ben and Lucky. We also had fun getting to know the other couples. Tom has been in Door County so ask him some questions about the area. Very laid back and we had a great experience!

During our trip this last week, we realized that we have sailed with Captain Tom Schroeder for over 20 years! He is a nice guy, a very competent sailor, and a fount of knowledge about Door County. It's just so relaxing to be sailing across the waters of Green Bay, leaving your fate in the hands of such a capable... More

My husband I went on the sunset cruise with Captain Tom. It was a great experience! On our sailboat cruise was one other couple, which was great, because it gave the cruise a more personal feel. We got to chat with Captain Tom the whole trip, and his super cute dog Lucky curled up in my lap and slept there... More

What a wonderful way to spend a summer morning. We had a beautiful sail in Green Bay on July 3rd. I highly recommend taking a sail with Capt. Tom and Lucky. My teenage children really enjoyed their time on the sailboat, and it made for some great family time. It was our second year on his boat, and when we... More

We vacation in Door County every year, and every year we go sailing. To be honest, for many years we sailed with Stiletto Catamarans, exclusively. But as our family grew, our group became too large for them to accommodate and they sub-contracted with Bella Cruises, and Captain Tom, and his first mate "Lucky" (a very small white dog) to take...

Saw advertisements for the larger competition but decided we would like a more intimate sail. With only six passengers, Captain Tom and his first mate, (a cute little pom/maltese mix) aboard we decided this would be the right cruise for us. Captain Tom got us off to a great start with introductions and some instruction and then we were off.... More
