Even without kids this would have been a fun cruise...but especially with kids it's great! More great customer service (like everyone else we came across in Door County) from the people running it...always concerned about what we might need and making it a fun experience. Yep like one of the sourpuss reviewers said someone dressed up like a Dalmatian and... More

We just got back from a family vacation in Door County, and my boys are still talking about the Fireboat cruise. We had a wonderful time! I braved the trip with my 3 and 5 year old boys--yes, very brave!! The captain and his first mate kept us entertained, fed--you can have lunch and adult drinks, and spraying the hose... More

If you are looking for a party boat with drinks, food, and loud music (everything from Mustang Sally to old-time swing tunes) then this might be for you. However, we were totally expecting something else. We went on this tour as part of the Maritime Museum Lighthouse Festival, and we were under the assumption that this was a narrated tour.... More

We rode the fire boat today and it was one of our best times all week! The crew is delightful and did everything they could to make us comfortable. The weather was a little objectionable, so they made it up by showing us part of the bay on the other side. Bar with cocktails at a reasonable price as well... More

The trip is about 1.5 hours out to Lake Michigan and back. The coastline is beautiful and the family running the boat is very friendly. Snacks and drinks are for sale very reasonably. A wonderful experience, Must See!!

This attraction splashes literature and advertising everywhere. We were excited to take the tour and willing to spend $$ to do so, but when we called, the tour operator said that they needed at least 8-10 people to take us out for the tour, and that we were to show up to see if that number would be there. We... More

My wife and I spent four day's in Door County this early June, We made the decision to take the sunset Fireboat cruise out of Sturgeon Bay. It was absolutely the best money we spent on our trip. The crue could not have been more accomodating. The boat is the most well equiped, (mens & womens restroom's, bar, rain &... More

Had a great time on the boat. Enjoyed appetizers and drinks while we toured sturgeon bay for about an hour and a half. Staff was friendly, bathroom was clean. The views are great. Water started to get choppy as we reached Green Bay but the captain turned us around. Some spiders on the ceiling of the boat were freaking out... More

The weather was a little rainy but the cruise was delightful. The staff is very friendly & makes the 1.5 hr trip very pleasurable. The only downside for me was that the crew did smoke. I dislike cigarette smoke, which was hard to get away from.

It was really fun for us even on a cool and rainy day. They have seats it the front and covered seats in the back. Can get food and drinks too. My kids loved it and they had activities like coloring and travel books to read that they gave the kids when they were bored. Great service.
