Nice walk out onto the pier and around the marina. If you walk out to watch the boats come and go, be sure to walk out to the lighthouse. And don't miss the Badger (ferry) coming and going. What a sight! Great to view at...More

We had about an hour to kill before heading to the maritime museum and decided to walk around the marina. A nice path will take you out to the lighthouse.

While visiting family in Manitowoc recently, we stopped to visit the marina. We walked out to the lighthouse and were thrilled to see baby geese and the pelicans that have returned. A sight not to be missed!

My lovely wife and I walked out to the lighthouse on a warm winter's day. Relaxing and enjoyable. Wintertime at a marina, but still enjoyable.

Rich and his staff are great, you need something just ask. I kept a slip there for a number of years and would today if I still had a bigger boat.
