The Sail Door County Difference
Unlike many Door County cruises, Sail Door County is focused on providing memorable and Earth-friendly experiences! For a majority of your tour, engines will be turned off so you can enjoy a peaceful and relaxing experience on the water. Without the engine power, the captain relies heavily on the day’s conditions and wind direction. Depending on which way the breeze takes you, you will encounter several Door County points of interest such as lighthouses, caves, and bluffs. Be sure to bring your camera, as the unique photo opportunities will be abundant!
Meet the Fleet
Edith M. Becker: This 65-foot tall schooner boasts a rich history that is narrated by both the captain and the crew. It can accommodate up to 22 passengers, although a typical cruise usually carries about half of this. The wide cedar decks are perfect for viewing the limestone bluffs and rocky shores.
40’ Passage North: With two large white sails, a full cabin, and bright white decks, the Cal 40 holds a spot in the Design Hall of Fame for sailboats. It was originally built to complete the Transpacific Race between California and Hawaii. However, old timers claimed the boat lacked the features to meet the rough demands of the open ocean. This boat is built for speed, so prepare yourself for an exciting journey along the bluffs of Door County!
