Whether you are starting your morning paddling under the shadow of Eagle Bluff’s 150-foot dolomite cliff face (Door County’s highest bluff), or ending your day just in time to see one of the county’s most spectacular sunsets on Ephraim’s shores, the Door County Eagle Harbor kayak tour has it all.
The Eagle Harbor kayak tour departs from the Ephraim Kayak Center, and takes guests along the sea caves and under forested terraces and bluffs of Peninsula State Park, all while enjoying a great view of Horseshoe Island and the Ephraim shoreline. Located between Fish Creek and Ephraim, Peninsula State Park is one of the most visited parks in Wisconsin, and the Eagle Harbor tour guides guests along her shores. Take in breathtaking views of the park from Nicolet Bay and Tennison Bay, as well as catching a glimpse of the 150-year-old Eagle Bluff Lighthouse.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The water is generally calmest in the morning, so it is best to book a tour earlier in the day. The seating area does tend to get a little wet so dress accordingly. Jeans are not recommended – wicking/tech clothing is best. On the Eagle Harbor kayak tour there is ample opportunity to view towering bluffs, Horseshoe Island, Eagle Tower, Eagle Lighthouse and Nicolet Bay. The conditions are constantly changing and it is a good idea to check the weather before heading out the door so you can dress appropriately.
WHAT TO BRING
You will want to bring water, sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and some positive energy. We welcome GoPros, cameras and cell phones, with a proper case and lanyard – it’s an accessible way to capture your experience. Pets are permitted on very calm days – be sure to notify us beforehand if you are bringing your pet.
