All Cave Point County Park trips leave from our shop in Jacksonport, WI. The address for our shop is 6300 Highway 57, Sturgeon Bay WI 54235. Although it is a Sturgeon Bay mailing address we are located about 20 miles north on the lake side of the highway. It is about a 5 minute drive to the boat launch before our adventure to kayak Cave Point can begin!
We like all of our guests to show up at our location 15 minutes prior to their tour. We start with the waiver and then you will get fitted for your life jacket. Then we will leave from our shop at the departure time and drive 10 minutes to the boat launch where all of our guest will be given a paddle and receive an orientation on the most effective methods for maneuvering a kayak. Once the tour will kayak alongside Cave Point County Park to the edge of Whitefish Dunes State Park. This trip is an out and back, meaning that we will then return to the boat launch where we began before driving back to the shop. On the water will take 2 hours and cover roughly 4 miles of some of Door County's most popular coastline.
You will want to bring water, sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, shoes that can get wet, extra dry clothes for colder days and some positive energy. GoPros, cameras and cell phones, with a proper case and lanyard, are a great way to capture your experience.
Our guests normally paddle in sit-on-top tandem kayaks. The exception is when a group has an odd number of people. Groups will odd numbers will have to decide amongst themselves which guest will be paddling in a single sit-on-top.
With the continuously rising lake levels most of the caves at Cave Point County Park are now submerged. There are still two caves that we can kayak into but they do require calm conditions and we are not always able to safely to get into them. On calm days Cave Point does offer immense clarity and you will have the best seat to see the submerged caves.
