Captain Matt took my family out today. The weather was great and his knowledge of the area and the wildlife is great. This tour was fun for my 2 15 year old girls. They had fun on the boat. This tour for the money is great and Matt makes you feel like you are just out on a friends boat for the day. He gives great service and is prompt and on time. A great way to see door county from a different perspective. If the waters warm enough bring your suit and a towel. I will reccomend this to all my friends.

My boyfriend and I took a rafting tour with Captain Matt over Labor Day weekend, and we had an amazing time! The boat goes incredibly fast, but Captain Matt does an impeccable job of explaining safety measures and making sure that his guests are comfortable. It was just the two of us with Captain Matt, which really allowed us time to get to know him and learn about Door County. I've visited Door County a few times, but I learned a lot of additional information about the islands and waterfront that I did not previously know. Captain Matt also played some great tunes, and we were all singing along to the music as we zipped across the water. I highly, highly recommend taking this tour!

My husband and I really enjoyed this! Matt is a great guy to spend a couple hours with. The tour takes 2 hours. He is very knowledgeable about Door County, having grown up in the area. He gave us the safety talk, asked us how fast we wanted to go, what kind of music we liked and took us out to the islands and stopped near each and gave us history/legend about each island. While we were traveling, at high speed with music blasting :) he would occasionally shout "Steering check!" and zip us around in tight circles. It was a blast! Highly recommended.

We went out with Captain Matt, on a somewhat "iffy" day, but he made sure that safety came first! His knowledge of the area and of the wildlife was outstanding. We had a great time "flying" over the 2-3 ft. waves, and we "hardly" got wet! This is something for thrill seekers, for those that are looking for something other than the regular boat tour, and for those that want a little adventure with their Door County vacation. We had fun just talking with Captain Matt and we learned a little about his life and his adventures, and he was always willing to answer any questions. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed.

Matt, the owner, was our guide on a two hour tour of Green Bay near Fish Creek. Matt was the best. He grew up in the area so he knows the history and can tailor the excursion to your liking. He has a fast boat and great tunes to keep things going and it's a great time for the the price. Highly recommended.
