The opportunity to take an insider’s view of shipbuilding industry will again present itself with the Sturgeon Bay Shipyard Tours on Saturday, May 6 this year. Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Sturgeon Bay, the event will include more than shipyard tours with an additional bus running to shuttle guests between the different waterfronts. Co-Chair Kevin Mutchler says the event has expanded to other maritime locations.
This year, visitors will be able to tour the US Coast Guard cutter Mobile Bay at Graham Park along with the Emergency Rescue boat and the Sturgeon Bay Police boat. You can find ticket information on the Shipyard Tours coming in May with this story online. Proceeds benefit the Door County Rotary Youth Interact.
Tickets will be available at both shipyard entry gates and the Museum on the day of the event, and will be available for purchase prior to the event at both the Door County Maritime Museum and the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center. Ticket prices are $15 per adult and $6 for students ages 11-17. Guests ages ten and under are free.
