Visit the Door County Maritime Museum
Along Great Lakes cruises you'll encounter many maritime museums. Though each has its own unique exhibits and artifacts, this museum is special. It features a 40-minute guided tour of the historic Great Lakes tugboat, the John Purves. The boat has been used since 1919 and saved countless ships during its day. When the St. Lawrence Seaway was completed in 1959, the John Purves was integral for helping ships that got stuck when the waterway was first navigated.
Sightsee with Door County Trolley, Inc
One of the best -- and easiest -- ways to see all that your Sturgeon Bay cruise has to offer is with a Door County Trolley tour. There are a host of guided tours to choose from, including wine tours, scenic tours, lighthouse tours, and even ghost tours. With 16 trolleys, each with their own theme, Door County Trolley provides a convenient way to see it all. These are also great if you're traveling with a group, as you can rent an entire trolley out for private tours of the area.
