Sail Aboard the “Denis Sullivan” this Summer

The summer of 2012 will offer both residents and visitors to Door County multiple opportunities to actually sail aboard the tall-ship Denis Sullivan. Cruises will range from a two-day sailing adventure around the Door Peninsula to three-hour trips down the Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal and into the deep blue waters of Lake Michigan.

In addition to several adult cruises ranging from three hours to three days, the Sullivan is offering a 3-day youth-focused adventure sail from Sturgeon Bay to Milwaukee. Feature sails include the unique “Fireworks on the Door” cruise departing Sturgeon Bay on July 4, returning the next day. This is a chance to help sail Denis Sullivan around the northern coast of Door County while watching fireworks displays along the shore wherever possible. Other opportunities include a two-day transit from Manitowoc to Sturgeon Bay on July 2 – 3 and a family-focused sail from Sturgeon Bay to Manitowoc on July 7 – 9.

The Denis Sullivan will also be a featured attraction at the 22nd Annual Classic and Wooden Boat Festival at the Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay on August 4 – 5. In addition to deck tours during the festival, 45 lucky passengers will enjoy a three-hour cruise aboard Sullivan each afternoon on August 3 – 5. Prices for the cruise range from $75 to $800 per-person depending on duration.
