Death’s Door Strait

French explorers named the strait linking Lake Michigan and the Bay of Green Bay “Port des Morts” meaning Death’s Door after hearing tales of native warriors who perished in a storm. In the 1800’s Port des Morts’ rough waters, unpredictable weather and hidden shoals caused over 100 shipwrecks making it one of the Great Lakes’ most treacherous stretches of water. Consider a narrated tour to bring this story to life. Also, viewing the peninsula from the water provides a totally different scenic experience.
