Nice relaxing sunset tour. Almost 2 hours. Perfect weather. Good music. Pretty views. Educational. Not overcrowded. $50 a person. Would go again.

Really enjoyed the fish creek scenic boat tour. We found out lots of great Door County history and saw some pretty neat sights, and Jerry was a fantastic and personable story teller.

The tour (Peninsula Park & Ephraim North) was disappointing, especially given the rather pricey tickets (+children, however young/small also require a ticket). Door County is a gorgeous place but this tour is subpar. The story teller, a nice guy (Jerry), rather than sharing insightful facts, kept rambling about how much he knows and researches and was encouraging questions from the passengers, rather than talking himself. I've taken numerous tours in WI and elsewhere, the Dells, UP and others, and the entertainment value to cost ratio was the lowest on this one. By 30 mins into it, it got boring. It feels like 'get rich quick' enterprise - from the advertised toilet on board (we had no need to use it, but it felt scam'ey to be encouraged to use toilet on shore before boarding), to over fluffed description of what you will see and hear on the tour, to pushy "begging" for positive reviews by the story teller. It was more fun taking the ferry to Washington Island from Northport, than spending time on this tour. It's worth perhaps half the price they charge.

We are sorry you didn’t enjoy this tour. There is nothing “scam’ey” about what we advertise and offer. I’m not sure what your whole argument is about the bathroom situation but yes, we do encourage guests to use the public restrooms across the street prior to boarding. We also do have a small restroom on board. Pricey tickets? Check the competition. We are actually slightly less or the same as some of the other boat tour activities available. Jerry has been with the company for many years and he has countless positive reviews so we are not concerned about your thoughts on him. If you enjoyed the ferry ride to Washington Island more, then perhaps an hour and a half narrated tour is not what you should’ve taken.

We went on the Saturday Night Music & Sunset Cruise at 7:00. It was a beautiful night. The 2 Captains were great. One was very informative talking about the area, camping, hiking & other things to see and do. He was also a very talented Singer and Guitar player with a wonderful sense of Humor. We could bring our beverages of choice on the boat. The other Captain was the driver of the boat. It was wonderful experience, that I would high recommend..
