We booked a private tour for my 67 year old mother, my husband and I and our kids aged 10-20. Everyone had an absolute blast. Matt is super easy going and makes the trip fun with his fun attitude and laid back style. Everyone was beyond happy with the trip. The kids were thrilled to go fast and 'whip a few' in Bailey's Harbor. My husband loved the shipwrecks. And my mother loved getting up close to the Cana Island lighthouse. We were a little worried due to both our backs not being the best, but it was not a bother in the least. I also get sea sick but did not at all on this boat. There is not much swaying as in larger boats I've been in. You don't get wet so no need to worry on that, but bring a coat and sunscreen, and your phone, no worries! I would do it again in a heartbeat, and will try the Fish Creek tour when we are up again next year!

Matt is a cool dude. Knowledgeable and fun. Initially I did have my doubts about the size of the raft, I am 6'6" and #350. Absolutely no problems. Easy on and off, and plenty of comfort during the adventure. Sitting in the back, I did catch some mist, but, "who gives a crap" we were rafting.
I give this an A+, there is reason the rating is what it is.

My family and I had a wonderful time on our tour of Fish Creek from the waters of beautiful Door County with Matt. He was very knowledgeable, interesting, and fun to be with. Great ride! Would definitely go again.

Took our daughter's family on the classic tour out of Fish Creek. This is a fun way to see the peninsula coast from the water. Capt. Matt gets the zodiac raft skimming the waves between points of interest. Enjoyed the fun music too. Matt even let our grandsons (ages 6 & 4) experience the thrill of piloting the boat. Matt really knows his history and lake science and presents it in a fascinating way. We've also done his shipwrecks tour and were impressed that so many wrecks can be viewed close to the shoreline. Matt also has a tour to Deaths Door, which is on our to-do list for next time.
