We recently went out on a day sail during our visit to Door. While educational and interesting, I did not find the sail as fun and relaxed as others I have experienced. We did not feel comfortable to kick back and relax together. I felt it was a little too high pressured to assist and talk with the Captain. I... More

The Bella sailboat will hold 6 passengers but my husband and I were the only ones who booked the Sunday 3:30 tour. We were out for a full 2 hours. It was fun, relaxing, and the view beautiful. Captain Tom is very experienced, told us fun facts and knows so much history about the area. The price is perfect and... More

Low key sailing for anyone wanting to enjoy the scenery and the water. Good first time sailing experience. Felt safe. Tom, the guide, was knowledgable of the area.

I've always wanted to go on a sail boat but I was a little apprehensive because I'm not a good swimmer. It was the most pleasurable water experience I've ever had. Tom, the Caption, was a pleasure to meet and took us on a leisurely 2 hour tour on Green Bay. Would definitely recommend this to anyone. Tom and his... More

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!
