My husband and I took a two hour private tour with Justin when we were in Door County. Everything about the experience was top level. He has high quality gear, which always makes for a more pleasant paddling experience. His paddling instruction was so helpful. He is passionate about kayaking and has in-depth knowledge of the history of Door County area and the surrounding waters, as well as the geological history of the area. His stories are engaging and informative. Justin is also a good and kind person. His appreciation of the natural world and his passion for protecting the environment are inspiring and contagious. We will absolutely book more tours with him next time we're in the area.


Simply the BEST kayak tour guide in Door County. Justin is a great guide, skilled kayaker, knowledgeable and passionate about Door County, and a wonderful person as well. He started his own Kayak company to give customers the best experience and he is rocking it. My wife and I went on a tour with Justin and really enjoyed ourselves. The Seay Kayaks Justin uses are very stable and perfect for Lake Michigan waters. Much better than the wider versions used by the other tours. Justin keeps his tour groups small to ensure a great experience. Do yourself a favor and book with Justin!!


Justin did an amazing job - he teaches the basics great, has a lot of knowledge about the area, and made the experience so fun and relaxing for our family. You get to see a shallow shipwreck and lots of nature and rock formations. Would definitely do it again with Justin !!! Plus his new kayaks made it a wonderful experience all around !


Out of all the options to do guide tours in this area, Justin does one of the best jobs ever. His knowledge of the area and his willingness to teach good kayak technique and safety as well as the surrounding areas is unmatched. It’s worth your time and effort to go with a small group with high-quality equipment for a positive experience. My family and I had a great two hours with him on the water.


Had a wonderful experience taking the family kayaking with Justin. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the area and made the experience an absolute joy. Would 100% recommend to anyone looking to get away from the beaten path of the Door County tourist traps. The kayaks were amazing and the experience was priceless. Will definitely be going back when we are back in Wisconsin next year.


Great kayaking with Justin. The kayaks were super comfortable and cut through the Door County waters efficiently. Highly recommend Justin and we can't wait to come again. 10 STARS !


Guide Justin is so knowledgeable & loves what he does. We had a fun tour & got to see Door County from a totally new perspective on the water. Highly recommend!


For anyone looking for a proper, bespoke Door County kayak tour, book in with Justin! Justin is beyond knowledgeable about about the DC waters and the history of the peninsula. We felt so much more comfortable kayaking with Justin because of his numerous kayak certifications and preparedness. His knowledge of the water, geology and history of the area far surpasses any other tour in the area. The kayaks are also so much comfortable than the generic “sit-on-top” kayaks that are so hard on your back. We will definitely be back for another tour to explore more of DC’s beautiful water views.


If you’re looking for a quality kayak tour with brand new sea kayaks and a guide who actually knows what he’s doing I would highly recommend Justin. Local guide who is very knowledgeable in the history of lake and land.


I kayaked with Justin on three tours this past weekend. The first tour was the Horseshoe Island/Eagle Bluff Adventure Tour. I have been kayaking in Door County for the past three years and this is the first time doing this route. The weather and water were perfect and Justin was fantastic. We stopped on Horseshoe Island and then made our way to Eagle Bluff and had a fabulous lunch, all locally produced. The second tour was the Door Bluff Sea Kayak Tour. Again, the weather was perfect and Justin did a fantastic job of talking about local history and pointing out interesting facts along the way. We were even able to see baby seagulls in their nests on the bluffs which was really neat to see. The 3rd tour was a custom sea kayak tour. We went to Moonlight Bay and Cana Island Lighthouse. I was able to climb the stairs at the lighthouse and have another awesome lunch with amazing food. I have used other kayak companies in the past, but Justin gives you a very unique sea kayak experience. He is a very kind, knowledgeable person who gives very good kayak instruction prior to going out on the water. He has a vast knowledge of local history and interesting facts pertaining to whatever area we are in. I have always used sit on tops and this was my first big trip using a sit in sea kayak. He made me feel very safe and comfortable on the water. I would highly recommend doing a tour with him and I will definitely be doing more tours with him this summer.
