The Schooner Coast was born from the waters of Lake Michigan and the area’s five rivers. One hundred years ago, bodies of water were transportation hubs and employment centers that gave birth to the cities of Manitowoc, Two Rivers, Kewaunee, Algoma and Sturgeon Bay. Today, the waters are wonderful natural jewels to explore and enjoy!
The Schooner Coast delivers miles and miles of freshwater beaches that range from rolling dunes to stretches of soft white sand to smooth pebble shorelines.
The free-flowing Manitowoc, East, West, Kewaunee and Ahnapee rivers provide hours of quiet relaxation in natural surroundings. Fish along their banks, wade into their refreshing waters or throw in a line.
Take in the sights and sounds of each community’s harbor. Enjoy the comings-and-goings of sleek pleasure boats and hear the stories of those returning from sport fishing charters.
Reel in a big one! Lake Michigan boasts fantastic sport fishing, including large trophy fish like Chinook and coho salmon, lake, rainbow and brown trout and many others that will put up a fight and bend your rod!
