With miles of trails and endless backroads, Door County, Wisconsin is a biking paradise. When you reach the end of the Peninsula, the roads end, but the biking adventures here are just beginning. The Island Clipper takes passengers and their bikes from the little fishing village of Gills Rock on a short but spectacular journey to Washington Island.

The island is packed with sights and scenic spots and is a wonderful place to continue a bike ride – until it’s time to return to the Clipper.

Here’s what you need to enjoy a Door County island ride like no other.

You can reserve tickets for the Island Clipper in advance over the phone or just buy them when you arrive. In the event of poor weather, the ferry may be delayed or canceled – if the weather looks bad you are welcome to call ahead to make sure the ferry is running.
