What animal would you embody?

Throughout these past few weeks, our guides have encountered a plethora of animals along our paddles. From swans to otters, our tours haven’t lacked the visual appeal of wildlife in Door County.  Our recent sitings of the playful family of river otters portrays the elements of earth & water, both in which encompasses our passions of adventure.  Come paddle with us, gather your courage & curiosity, & the great bald eagle may grace us with its presence.

Happy 4th o’ July Door County! Enjoy the explosion of colors in the evening sky in Baileys Harbor tonight!


July 4th, 2012 Kickoff!

Our favorite holiday is just around the corner…JULY 4TH!

Aside from the traditional 4th of July events such as BBQ’s, fireworks and boating, Door County has some of the most fun outdoor activities one can imagine. What is our favorite? Kayaking of course! With 298 miles of shoreline waiting for you to partake on a kayaking adventure there is no reason not to get out on the water on us.

Besides kayaking, our guides at Door County Kayak Tours share a wide array of personal interests and hobbies. Every year around the 4th we make an extra effort to enhance our team bonding and are always on the lookout for an adventure. Our next two weeks are not just filled with work-but also skydiving, kiteboarding, ziplining, climbing, off road segway-ing and fishing (just to name a few).

These past 2 days we’ve been blessed with a full day of kiting lessons in Bailey’s Harbor and a chartered fishing trip with Reel Addiction Charters in Ellison Bay. A big thanks to Captain Tim for taking the crew out and helping us come home with 12 salmon…enough dinner for a few weeks! With a great kickoff to the 4th of July craziness we look forward to many more adventures in the upcoming weeks- stay posted!!

Thanks for listening, and if you’re ever wanting to fish be sure to check out Reel Addiction Charters :)

4th of July Parade

I think we brought the fun to this parade. The DCKT team filled up the kayaks with water and as the day slowly got hotter, our supersoakers started to alleviate the heat of the crowd. While we watched as children stood motionless and unexcited to the other floats handing out candy, they were screaming and begging for more when we rolled past in the “Cool” Bus. I think we were having too much fun, because we forgot to take pictures of the water fight. Hanging out in the BusJ ake had a interesting run-in with a camel. Jake kissing camelBut otherwise there were no casualties.
