The Festival weekends include land-based, boat, and adventure tours that together reach all eleven of the treasured lighthouses of Door County. Many of the tour excursions are unique to the Lighthouse Festival weekends, and provide visitors exclusive access to several lighthouses not typically open to the public, including Chambers Island Lighthouse, and Plum Island Range Lights.
There are tours for all levels of activity and accessibility. Some tours involve hiking. Boat tours depart from a variety of locations around the Peninsula, including Sister Bay, Gills Rock and Baileys Harbor.
• Arrive at the tour departure location at least 15 minutes before departure time • Dress in layers as the weather can change quickly • Take note of the lunch details of each tour • Bring your camera, sunscreen, and bug spray • Wear sturdy close-toed shoes, especially when hiking • Each lighthouse tour ticket includes free admission to the Death’s Door Maritime Museum in Gills Rock through the end of the 2021 season
