Què farem?

We'll launch into the historic Manitowoc Harbor and immediately paddle pass the Manitowoc Breakwater Lighthouse and SS Badger Carferry slip (Badger is in port Noon-2pm daily). As we make our way up river, we'll explore Manitowoc's history from the perspective of its most integral and, often, overlooked resource - the river. Human and Natural History from the First Nations to first settlers and artists to industrialists, I'll share key insights and impacts of particular landmarks and locations from Manitowoc's past, and how they've influenced the community's present. This 2.5 hour tour will paddle up river to the turnaround point, Manitou Park, where a bathroom break and snack will be available.

Tour Highlights:
- Manitowoc Breakwater Lighthouse
- SS Badger Carferry (National Historic Landmark)
- USS COBIA WWII Submarine (National Historic Landmark)
- Manitowoc City Hall & Manitowoc County Courthouse
- McMullen & Pitz Maritime Construction
- Shipyard Point
- Former Manitowoc Shipbuilding Company yards (where all 28 Submarines were built and launched).
- Burger Boat Co. (America's 2nd oldest yacht maker)

Our paddle down the river with Matt was a great experience. My husband and I are Manitowoc natives and wanted to know more about the history of Manitowoc's River life. He shared facts throughout and we really enjoyed the wonderful human interest stories. He was very knowledgable about the past, present, and future plans of the river area. Matt moved along at our pace and we took a short break at the half way point using the new kayak launch at Manitou Park. If you're looking to know more about Manitowoc's river history while enjoying a ride on the river, Matt's excursion will not disappoint!
