Sorry to say, we accidentally deleted our old website and are working nonstop on this work in progress, please be patient and we will have it completed asap from our beach cabana in Bocas del toro. If you have any questions, please email [email protected] We hope it won’t be too long, the waves call our name a few times a day.

Accidentally deleting our old site was a blessing in disguise. IT was ugly :/

When you book a tour with us, we ask that you honor the date and time of your tour. There are times when we need to cancel all tours due to wind and waves and we will do our best to reschedule you to another time.(Why we ask you to book early in your vacation week) We do our best to honor requests to the bluffs or the caves on our daily group tours. However, we are at the mercy of the wind and waves. Both tours are beautiful, but we understand, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and if you are stuck on seeing one or the other we recommend booking a private tour with us. With a private tour, we can make sure you get to one of the 25 paddling locations around the peninsula, ie. Deaths Door, Moonlight Bay, etc. That is as long as you have some flexibility with your time frame.
  • We focus on bringing
    • beginners,
    • never-evers,

User Reviews

We had a great time kayaking in June of this year. As first time kayakers, we had some concerns about my daughter’s insulin pump getting wet and they even scheduled an additional guide to kayak with her to make sure she didn’t tip over. They were very patient and helpful as we got the hang of paddling and steering. Beautiful scenery and a new perspective of the area that we had not seen. Highly recommended!

“Fantastic Guides”
Emma and AJ were our guides to Cave Point and were friendly and very knowledgeable about the area, the wildlife and the geography. Emma’s bubbly personality and enthusiasm helped make this a fun tour for a group of adults, teens, and our own 12-year-old and 7-year-old. I think it was about a mile of paddling out to Cave Point, which was just right for those who don’t have a lot of kayak experience. We loved this perspective of Door County and the fact that Emma was happy to take pictures, which were easy to find later on Facebook. We especially appreciate the quick response, care, and followup that Emma and another guide, Christina, gave when our son was stung by yellow jackets back at the dock. (This is a tour of the great outdoors, after all.) Our son was back to his happy self by the end of that afternoon. I would not hesitate to recommend Door County Kayak Tours and only wish our stay had been longer so that we could have experienced one of their other tours.
What, no reviews? Come on people. This was a great experience. We called the morning of and was able to get a spot for two at 10:00. AJ was our guide and he was very personable and fun. They were very accommodating and set the pace according to the group. I brought my 72 yr old mom and she did just fine in a tandem kayak. Loved the kayaking through the caves. We limboed through one of the caves. Book with this company!
First time kayaking. Had a great time. Fun and exciting adventure. Jeffrey and Drew were excellent and patient guides. Will definitely be back next summer.
We absolutely loved our tour with Christina! She has a bubbly personality with a lot if knowledge of door county
She led us to the caves and let us jump in on one of the sand beaches. The water was super smooth and made it easy to paddle. The kayaks were super stable and it was easy to see why this is a prime vacation destination. We even saw a bald eagle on the trip! By far, the best kayak tour I have ever been on! I highly recommend it!

Door County Kayak Tours, llc. began in Fish Creek, WI. , February 2003 with the dream of exploring the Door County coastline with fellow nature-lovers. Kayaks are non-threatening to wildlife, which means you’ll have a rare view of birds and animals that normally scatter at the approach of motorized boats. In stable sit-on-top and sit-in sea kayaks you use, you’ll feel a connection with the Lake Michigan and Green Bay waters.  If you’re already an avid sea kayaker, you’ll enjoy our emphasis on wildlife, geology and natural history from local guides. No prior experience is necessary! Kayaking is easy to learn in the sheltered waters that we visit, and we provide all of the gear, kayak equipment and guidance needed.

We selected the very best places to tour in Door County, WI. Don’t just kayak around the busy towns of Fish Creek, Ephraim or Egg Harbor,  come explore the rest of Door County’s 300 miles of shoreline.  Each world-class location hosts spectacular picturesque bluffs, caves, lighthouses, and shipwrecks as well as calm paddling waters.

We are the company that guides choose to work for long-term, even in a very seasonal industry. Our top-notch equipment, phenomenal itineraries, and perfected operations attract extraordinary guides – many who are highly sought after in the industry, and who have stayed with us for years. Even guides who travel to work in other areas often return to Door County Kayak Tours for the same reason: our high quality tours.
